Dear Tracy, I just have one question for you …. Why do men suck?
Those four words are repeated by women all over the world, every single day. Why do men do the things they do? Why do they lie to, cheat on and abuse us? Truth is, I don’t know why men do the things they do. The only they I can say for sure though is that the possibility for a man to be like this seems to be within all men, however not all men are like this.
And it’s important that we don’t paint all men by the same brush, just like we wouldn’t want them to say all women are the same. Just because one man is a lying, cheating bastard, doesn’t mean all of them will be.
If you really want to be happy then it’s important that you don’t think about how horrible your ex-boyfriend was and instead try and focus on the great things about your current man. It isn’t always easy – especially for those who have been cheated on. When we have our trust violated in that way, it’s very hard to get over it – even years and years later.
But it’s important that you try. It’s important that you remember your current boyfriend is not your ex and just because your ex was a jackass, doesn’t mean your current boyfriend will be too.
That being said, I hope that from your past bad experiences you learned how to TRUST YOURSELF. If for some reason something doesn’t feel right, BELIEVE ENOUGH IN YOURSELF to ask yourself why. Trust your gut instincts and at the very least try and figure out if what you are feeling is because of what your ex has done to you or because of something your current boyfriend has done.
