What an insult!
Hopefully this final time cured her, but it took her that many times to "get it".
The moral of the story is that we want to believe in the best in people and give them the benefit of the doubt, but at the same time we can't allow ourselves to be doormats.
Ouch. I think that would do it. Everything he says to me is so sweet and I just so want to believe it. I have never caught him cheating or had any real proof. I just feel like he's lying to me. I don't know what more it should take. I don't want to have to be hit over the head...I mean none of what has happened is subtle, but for some reason it's still not enough to put me off completely.
I really do want to believe the best in him. I really don't want to be a doormat. I guess he's a little smarter than that guy was because at least he doesn't say stuff like that. Part of me just wants to give in and go with it and the other wants the truth and boundaries. The sides are fighting inside of me right now. I don't think he's ever going to tell me the truth, but I can't point to any evidence of anything that's happened. I think that's why I am able to justify hanging on. If I caught him with someone else, I don't think there would be a question, but enough has happened to say it's not right...I don't know what more I need.
