A Letter to my Cheating Ex


Shared by William

Dear Cheating Ex,

It’s been a over a year since we split up, you’re still with Mr. Perfect and I’m still single. Mainly because I’ve been carrying the emotional baggage you handed me… the anxiety, paranoia, and the insecurity. Every time I check your Facebook to see you posting pictures at our favorite places with Mr. Perfect, a piece of me feels like it’s rotting away. I’ve tried to talk to girls thinking it would distract me, if only enough to keep from having nightmares, things got pretty serious with one girl but my constant paranoia makes it impossible for flowers to grow in this poisoned garden of mine. Every day I try to unpack these bags you gave me but it seems like an impossible task for just one person

Maybe it’s my fault, I mean, you cheated on me our entire four year relationship. Maybe I shouldn’t have loved you so deeply or believed you when you said it back. Maybe it’s my fault… Every time I caught you I cried, but you didn’t and “I’ll never do it again” was still believable even after the 8th time you said it. I guess it is my fault for loving you. Whenever someone comes along to help me unpack this baggage you so willingly gave to me I’ll be sure to send it your way, Mr. Perfect will probably need it soon enough

Unfortunate love,

Your faithful ex
