Today I’m writing this post pretty early. But guess what, I’m still stuck in traffic going to work. Haha. it’s been raining heavily and motorists have had to slow down. A forty-minute trip has stretched for three hours. Lots of cars have broken down due to the flood. Anyway, that’s basically the update from where I am. But let’s not dwell on that. Welcome to my tea party- there’s hot choco, coffee and tea. Just perfect for the rain! Feel free to catch up on yesterday’s post.

Day 7: Your opinion on cheating on people

This is one serious conversation we gon’ have . Try to sit easy though and don’t forget to sip on your tea.

So yeah, I don’t think it’s right to cheat on people. I’m saying that from a mind that sees things in black and white and no shades of grey. But I’m not writing this post to shove my opinions down your throat, I want us to reason together.

My opinion that cheating is wrong lies in the fact that I don’t think it’s fair on the other person. Love is magical and it’s full of mysteries. Even King Solomon in all his wisdom, admitted that he would never understand the way of a man with a woman. It’s crazy how one person can just become your world when you’re in love with them. Thus, cheating just rips the heart apart.

I believe everyone deserves an open and honest relationship. If you’ve got feelings for someone else, either risk losing the person you’re with and go be with the other person; or nip it in the bud and stick with what you have. Remember, it’s just my opinion.

I was talking with some of my grown-up friends the other day and I was asked why people cheat. Lack of contentment was my answer, and still is. It’s the same lack of contentment that makes people steal to have things that they don’t have. If you’re content with your partner, you’re less likely to cheat on them.

My friend went on to point out that there are situations where one may not have a choice but to cheat e.g a critical job on the line or towards a more beneficial future for the partner he is with. To this, I’ll respond with Joseph’s story- flee!

I understand, however, that being tempted and fleeing from it is much harder than it sounds. But I think when it comes to relationships, you just have to respect the person enough to tell them when you’ve done wrong. Or take the best route of avoiding the act in the first place. That’s my two-cents!
