I’m not going to lie and tell you that cheating with other women wasn’t fun or enjoyable. I had a great time doing what I did, even though I was dead wrong.
To be honest, I never saw myself getting caught or making a change in my lifestyle. I would wake up and tell myself, “Wes, you are going to be good today, you will honor your wife and your marriage”
Well of course the temptation would show itself strong and I would fail miserably, whether it was physical or just saying something very inappropriate to the opposite sex.
On a constant basis I would see the hurt and anguish just eating through the heart of my ex-wife, and it’s a shame that even her tears and pleading with me just to treat her right couldn’t get me to see that my ways were totally wrong.
Now the type of Karma that was waiting on me I don’t wish on anybody, but the crazy thing was, I never really thought about the repercussions of my actions until it became my turn to cry.
The saying “cheaters never prosper” is definitely a true statement that I had to learn the hard way, and it was a hard pill to swallow. It’s funny that you never really think about what you have done to others until it’s done to you 100 times worse.
When everything was said and done with me and my ex-wife, and we actually forgave one another for the things that had transpired between us, she began to share some of the tough times that she suffered through when I left. All of the stories that she shared with me started to run through my mind as my karma knocked on the door.
I’ve never cried so much in my life when everything was done with my prior relationship, and I deserved to shed every last tear that fell down my face because I really thought that I was invincible and nothing would ever come back on me. I was delusional for believing that. I understand that we all have different desires, but we have to be mature and accountable for our decisions at some point in time in your life.
As I said before, I thought I was Superman when I was out there doing my dirt, but everyone has their own kryptonite out there, and you if you choose to continue to decide to be reckless with your actions, remember that Every Cheater Has It’s Turn.
