Being cheated-on is one of the worst experiences of life. It is hard to recover from a broken relationship. And it is much more worse when the reason for breakup was your 'cheating partner'. It is very painful to find out that your partner has been betraying you. The person whom you considered to be your soul mate, your significant other and your life partner was unfaithful to you during all this time.

Infidelity from your partner can push you into a series of emotional and psychological strains. Partners who get cheated-on undergo a number of traumatic feelings. They experience:

  • Insecurity
  • Worthlessness
  • Loss of Trust
  • Anger
  • Rejection
  • Inadequacy
  • Shame
  • Hurt

The partner who gets cheated-on has to undergo all these awful emotions. Life seems to be ending at the start of a breakup. But later, we decide to drag ourselves out of this phase of continuous pain. Eventually, we all overcome (maybe to some extent) our breakups and the cheated-on experience. There is no other choice, we learn to survive and we learn to heal our souls.

During this phase of rescuing ourselves and winding up, we undergo a thoughtful process. We review all the incidents of our past life and we drive towards different conclusions. The whole experience of being cheated-on by our partners makes us learn a lot about life. This dreadful experience transforms us into a totally new being. We learn a lot from our experience and this gives us a new approach towards life. We learn:

7. Trust Is The Most Important Thing In A Relationship

After being betrayed, we learn that trust is the most important ingredient for a healthy and successful relationship. Without trust, no relationship can survive. We used to have complete faith and confidence in our relationship with our significant other. Once they broke our trust, they also break our hope and faith in relationships.

But after sometime, we try to overcome this phase of disappointment and now we are transformed into a person who has learnt his/her lesson. We start to trust other people again, but this time we will trust only those who are worthy of it.
