Faithful… that one word means so much when your in a committed relationship. I’ve heard some say that being faithful is hard. For me I feel like being faithful is woven in my DNA. I’m not saying that to vaunt. But it’s all I’ve ever known, through thick and thin. My faithfulness has definitely led to my demise several times.
No relationship is perfect, but it’s important to not fill the void or voids your mate may have with someone else. Recently, I’ve had an ex repeatedly contact me “anonymously” being very inappropriate and down right disrespectful. This is someone who tied the knot a few years ago and has since extended his family. I can’t help but to wonder what void (emotional, physical, spiritual etc.) he is trying to fill with me. I can’t imagine the hurt his spouse would feel knowing that he keeps trying to reach out to me inappropriately.
I’ve never been someone’s wife, but I’ve been in the shoes of a girlfriend who’s man couldn’t keep his pants up. My heart breaks because I would never want to be in that position again and would NEVER get involved with a married man. To me that’s just the lowest of lows. Why be in a committed relationship if you know you don’t want to be faithful? If you are in a committed relationship, whether it may be through dating or marriage there shouldn’t be a Plan B in place.
When you love someone, committing yourself to that person is one of the greatest gifts you can give. Being faithful, means being open, even when the truth makes you uncomfortable, because you believe that your mate deserves to know the truth. Sometimes I feel like I’m too transparent in relationships because I sometimes feel like I overshare things with my mate. If I can’t be honest with you with all aspects of my life then who can I be honest with? Being faithful means deciding that your love for one person outweighs your desire to be with any other person on the face of the Earth. A committed, healthy, balanced relationship is one of the most rewarding things and I look forward to spending the rest of my life and growing old with the love of my life.
“being faithful means more than never letting another person into your bed. It means never letting another person in your heart.”
