My Ex Cheated On Me, But It Made Me Realize I Deserve More

Because of you, I'm now with the guy of my dreams

My Ex Cheated On Me, But It Made Me Realize I Deserve More

I was angry. I was hurting. I was broken down and I felt like I couldn't bring myself up.

I thought I wasn't good enough for anyone.

I would never wish for someone to be cheated on. It is probably the worst emotional pain anyone could ever feel.

I felt betrayed.

My trust was out the door.

My heart was breaking into millions of pieces.

I felt like I couldn't breathe.

I kept asking myself, "why?" over and over repeatedly.

After some time, a long, long time, I finally answered that why. That relationship wasn't supposed to work. That relationship was TOXIC and I knew I didn't deserve to be treated that way. And I knew I didn't deserve for it to happen REPEATEDLY.

Yes, I had my moments to where I was "crazy" but I simply couldn't trust him! I had my reasons and examples as to why I couldn't.

I've asked myself in the past, "why in the heck did I not leave then?" It would've saved so much heartache from happening, I would've had more time with my family and friends, and living my life in high school. But to be truthful, it was a good lesson learned. God wanted me to learn this lesson so I could learn my worth.

But thank you to the guy that cheated on me, I am so glad you did.

Like no, really, thank you.

Because of you, I met the REAL man God set me out to be with. Because of you, I now know my worth and I know how I should be treated.

I know what I deserve and how I deserve way more.

I'm the happiest I've ever been. I found a guy who DESERVES me and who I want to spend the rest of my life with. To also know he wants to spend the rest of his life with me as well is a remarkable feeling.

I am so glad you cheated on me because it opened up my eyes.

I grew up into a woman that I thought I'd never become. I am now with the man of my dreams!

I figured out what I want to do with my life with the man I love more than myself. Who would never dare hurt me and I TRUST that he wouldn't. This true love I have with my significant other taught me how to trust a man again. He has shown me how much I mean to him and how unconditional his love is for me.

Thank you for cheating on me because now, I'm in a LONG-LASTING, HEALTHY relationship going on three years! It's funny how things work out.

Being with the love of my life, he knocked down all the walls and barriers I had built up. He was like a breath of fresh air. He made me feel like I could breathe again after drowning myself in worry, doubt and negative thoughts. He has shown me my worth and what I truly deserve.

Thank you ex, thank you for driving me away so I could be with the man whom my heart loves and belongs to.

Was being cheated on a good lesson learned?

Yes. Because I know how much more I deserve.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
