Why are we being cheated?
Almost everyone has been cheated at least once in our lives, and all of us know the pain and heartache cheating can cause. Even most of the time, we never know if we’ve been cheated on, and there are so many cases where people have been cheating for years.
There is no single reason to understand why people cheat on each other. It is because there are a lot of dynamics that go into a person’s mind to cheat. We consider that deceiving and cheating other people are traits of a dishonest person. When people do cheat intentionally and distort the truth to deceive others, they simply contradict the values and limits of honesty.
Why does a relationship end with the most painful element of cheating?
It is easy to assume that infidelity can automatically end a relationship but is it actually that simple? It is not so late. Through faithful counseling, it is easy for you to heal and get your relationship back on track.
Some several traits and reasons can cause a good man or woman to cheat on their partner. Some of few common reasons are:
A person with less experience in a long-term relationship is likely to cheat. This is also valid if they don’t realize sufficiently that these acts have consequences. Such a person might have the idea that cheating is justifiable. According to that person being in a monogamous relationship is something he/she should settle for themselves based on circumstances.
A person who cheats unintentionally may have a lot of insecurities, such as
- Being too old or young
- Not being Handsome/beautiful
- Not so rich or clever enough
Moreover, adultery is sometimes or even connected to the mid-life crisis.
People who are too dependent on alcohol or drugs also cheat their partner as their addiction clouds their decision-making skills.
· Intense Infatuation:
Most of the time, people misunderstand intense infatuation to love. Because of the rush from brain chemicals released during the early stages of love, they could be thinking that long-term love can be replaced.
· Lack of Support:
Lack of social support can be another reason for cheating. People think that their emotional and social needs can be met by their partner. If a partner is not capable of fulfilling their demands, they resort to cheating.
You can recover!
Abuse, being unrealistic, and selfishness are some other reasons for cheating in a relationship. But all is not lost, as many relationships and marriages can recover through faithful counseling. The aim of faithful counseling is to seek forgiveness. Still, it is about accepting and taking the other partner’s risk if their partner is remorseful.
Counseling is a two-way mechanism to help each other rather than attack each other with a recovery process that takes time and effort.
At the end of the day, there is no definitive explanation why good people lie and cheat in their relationships. These factors begin to change as the habit of cheating evolves. These can be influenced by various life experiences and situations. No matter what the excuse is, there is no justifiable reason that one needs to cheat on one’s partners.
