I was in a long-term relationship with a man for many years. (thankfully I’m with an amazing guy now) If those around me in his family would have told me the truth a long time ago, I could have spared myself and my family a ton of hurt brought on by this man. They kept from me, abuse issues with other women, numerous infidelities, thefts and embezzlement to name but a few.
I started this blog because liars and cheats get away with their dirty business all the time and leave a wake of ruin behind them. I know this first-hand, unfortunately. My ex, is on the loose, in Mississauga Ontario. Whether he was married, engaged, single; he was always the player that was looking for the next victim. He lied to, he stole from, he will abuse (both mentally and physically) if it suits his purposes and he has cheated on every woman in his life. EVERY woman….including the young woman he’s married to. I wonder if she has a clue that he’s consistently been on the prowl for his next piece of action throughout their courtship and marriage? Unfortunately, we all too often turn a blind eye and trust well beyond the point when our gut instincts tell us to sit up and take notice.
Repeatedly, I get asked if I’m happy and if I truly am, then I would leave this chapter of my life behind me. The problem with that, is in this world, we all have a network of famiy and friends. If that network that you’re surrounded by, as was mine, chose to add to the hurt by deceiving me further, then words like this might be able to help someone put things into prospective in their own lives.
Ironic is the fact that writing this blog has helped me gain once again the clarity in my life. That same clarity has allowed me to step back from the mess that was once my life and view it more objectively. Yes, my past is still a part of me and likely always will be. I have morphed into a new kind of me and that’s okay by me..
If this blog can help even one woman or one man and spare them the hurt that I and others have gone through, then my words will not have been in vain. That one reason, is the fundemental reason for this blog’s existence. Cheers and thanks for stopping by!
