To The Boyfriend Who Cheated, Thank You For Teaching Me To Quit Putting Up With BS

I am worth more than the little value you placed on our relationship.

You betrayed me in the worst way. I gave you so much of me, and you handled my heart like it meant nothing to you. It stung, I'll admit. I was bitter for days, months, years after I found out you cheated. But, I don't regret our relationship.

In fact, I'm thankful for it because it helped me learn to stand up for myself and know my own worth.

While we were together, I left everything up to other people. I let everyone around me, including you, tell me what to like, what to dislike, what to wear, how to act, and who to be. People could treat me however they wanted, and I never contested it. I was never really myself, mostly because I didn't know how to be. When you left me for someone else, my whole "identity" was shattered. I had to rebuild myself from the ground up.

Without you, I was forced to find other places to find my worth. I tried placing it in fake friends, grades, hobbies, and other men I thought would be as important to me as you. None of that was satisfying because all of those things greatly disappointed me at one point or another.

Ultimately, I had to make the choice to put my whole being into a God who loves me unconditionally and will never leave me desolate. I also began to surround myself with things I truly loved, like my family, loyal friends and time spent alone. Learning to be myself again and unapologetically enjoy life was a growing experience I never could've anticipated, but one I am so grateful for. If not for your unfaithfulness, I wouldn't be the individual I am today. I would still be completely focused on others' approval. Your approval. The people around me would still hold the reins to my life.

For anyone who is going through the heartbreak of a cheating SO, please know that your value is so far above whatever he/she has placed on you. You are a treasure to God, your family, your friends, and people you don't even know yet. Give yourself a chance to re-evaluate, reinvent, and grow from this experience.

You are not broken. There is nothing wrong with you.

No amount of people-pleasing will force someone to love you, so learn to be yourself always. You never have to put up with being used, abused or mistreated. You are cherished more than you'll ever know, so let unnecessary baggage go and live like you're loved.

G-Eazy and Halsey went public with their swoon-worthy relationship on Instagram in September 2017. The couple recently broke up after several months of being on again, off again. But that didn't stop them from having the cutest displays of public affection all over their Instagrams during their courtship.

Here are the 12 cutest Instagrams of G-Eazy ad Halsey that make it all that much harder to let go of their relationship:

1. When they went to the AMA's and looked like the hottest couple at prom

2. When they spent a normal day by the pool just Mom, Dad & Pup 

3. When they took a casual ride down the gondola in Venezia, Italy

4. When they were too smitten for us to handle

6. When they had an impromptu photoshoot in a convenient store that could be on the cover of Vogue

7. When the show STOPPED as they graced the MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet

8. When G posted a picture of his Mom and Halsey for International Women's Day (and I shed real tears)

9. When they showed us what pure bliss looks like (and he quoted their song for his caption)

10. When they kissed ON STAGE during a performance together and confirmed that they are the OTP

11. When G posted a candid picture of them kissing in the snow

Halsey and G-Eazy are the modern Romeo and Juliet as far as I'm concerned. They serve up a heavy dose of love on all of their social media accounts and prove to us time and time again that real love is out there and they're not afraid to show theirs off.

Why Do Athletes Think They Can 'Play The Field' And Cheat On Their Partners?

Being an athlete doesn't give you the right to cheat.

877

We've seen it in the media too many times before. The big-shot sports star has his infidelity revealed to his partner and the press and, once the news is out and about, an explosive altercation ensues. Take Tristan Thompson and Khloe Kardashian, for example—a mere two days before the birth of their daughter, True, The Daily Mail released footage of Thompson getting frisky with two other women at a hookah lounge.

And that's not even the worst part. Thompson actually blames his cheating behaviors on peer pressure from his fellow athletes! He reportedly told Kardashian that "women were constantly throwing themselves at him, and he felt pressure to not refuse them." He tried to justify his actions by saying that there is an "unspoken rule in the NBA that players hook up with groupies on the road."

So he, a grown adult who should be capable of self-control, is claiming that his teammates on the Cavaliers all but forced him to cheat on his pregnant girlfriend. And it's quite sad that he actually expected that excuse to work.

Not surprisingly, this ideology is just as popular among college athletes as it is among professionals. "We're athletes," they declare, "so women will always want to be with us." And while that's all well and good, it's resisting these temptations while in a monogamous relationship that is always of the utmost importance.

To the cuffed athletes who love to score on and off the field, you need to come down off of your high horses and start thinking of the people you're hurting.

Those girls in the bleachers are sitting out there for you. They are taking the time to cheer you on and support your athletic career, not the promiscuity that you think should come with it. If you want to have casual sex and flex in a different girl's face every night, that's fine, but do that only if you are really, truly single. Your girlfriend shouldn't be wearing the same jersey that you loaned out to one of your hookups a few days earlier. She shouldn't have to worry about you being on the road, wondering what other girls might be all over you when you're celebrating a big win. Do her a favor and call it quits if you really feel the need to see other people, because she'd much rather be broken up with than cheated on.

At the end of the day, you might have won the game, but take a good look in the mirror and you'll see what a loser you really are for being so careless.

No one is so famous that they are above staying faithful. Your varsity status does not exempt you from being a decent human being and respecting the person you promised your heart to. There is no privilege or accolade on Earth that puts you in a place where cheating is acceptable.

In short, the quarterback needs to know that what his girlfriend doesn't know will come back to hurt her. The point guard needs to start thinking of himself as someone's boyfriend and not as a celebrity worthy of being worshipped. The champions and underdogs of every sports team must be held accountable for their actions just like we all are. When it comes to cheating, it's plain and simple—no one is pardoned based on who they are when it comes to being unfaithful.
