This isn’t my first tango when it comes to cheating. I’ve written various articles on the subject, on various different occasions, because I’m a victim of cheating. I’ve been cheated on multiple times in my life, five to be exact, and it hurt the same (if not more) every time.
But the instances are sometimes different than they appear, some things can be forgiven and forgotten while some will leave a huge scar on your life forever. The “scar-inducing” thing I’m talking about right now is deception, yes, there’s something way worse than cheating, it’s being deceived. What’s the difference? Have you been cheated on or deceived or both? Let’s talk about it.
Here are the differences between being cheated on and being deceived by someone you love:
Cheating can sometimes be forgiven, deception simply can’t
Cheating can also be labeled as a “mistake” in most cases. If the person didn’t have the intention to cheat, it’s a mistake and they’ll do whatever they can to make up for it. While deception isn’t a mistake and it can’t be forgiven or forgotten. When a person cheats, he or she doesn’t really want to but they just couldn’t control themselves enough to stop themselves from doing it (be it physical or emotional cheating), but deception is something far worse than a mistake, it’s something they’ve been wanting to do and weren’t happy until they did it. People who deceive aren’t even completely sorry for what they did, and they damn sure will do it again whenever they get the chance to. So don’t take this lightly, if you’ve been deceived in your life it means you’re a very emotionally-weak person and you need to be a better judge of character.
