A while back I wrote an article about how Cardi B's song "Be Careful" really helped me get over being cheated on.
Recently though I realized that Cardi isn't the only mega famous star who has spoken out about a partner's infidelity.
Stars such as Khloé Kardashian, Jennifer Garner, Iggy Azalea, Halsey, Kourtney Kardashian, and yes even Beyoncé have all been victims of cheating. And it is no secret that these are all beautiful and successful women, so I started to wonder why on earth was anyone cheating on them?
They seemingly 'have it all' but they still got cheated on, why?
The answer may not be clear but I do think it goes to show that literally anyone can be cheated on, regardless of status, power, looks, or personality. Anyone can fall victim to it.
So if you have been cheated on there is no reason to think that it is because of something you did, your looks, or your personality. Of course there are some circumstances where that may be the case but most of the time there is no reason to blame yourself.
As hard as it is to get over cheating, I think one of the more challenging aspects of it is learning how to accept that you didn't cause it to happen.
If your partner cheats on you it is easy to look at yourself and wonder what you did wrong and what you did to push them away but the reality is that it was their choice to make. You can't let yourself be blamed for something that they did to you.
So for everyone out there who has been cheated on before, just remember that even Beyoncé was cheated on by Jay-Z, so don't blame yourself. Hold your head up high.
Like Nicki Manjaj said, "you were a queen before him and you'll be one after him".
You are special and worth loving! Don't let anyone take that away from you or make you look at yourself differently!
