There are few things more devastating than being cheated on. I've said it before and I'll say it again ― it is the ultimate act of betrayal. To learn that the person you love has made a choice to break your heart for their own gain will almost kill you inside. And no matter how many people you talk to, if they've never experienced that feeling, they'll never understand. Luckily, keeping an arsenal of quotes if you've been cheated on can pull you out of your darkest days.
Some people like to try and justify cheating, but I absolutely can not. And I've found that most of the people who make excuses for it have never had it happen to them. It is the lowest blow you can be dealt in a relationship and you are never the same afterwards. It affects everything ― your self-confidence, your future relationships, and your trust in the world around you. You blame yourself, you blame your partner, and then you blame the person with whom they cheated. You look for any one thing to pin the infidelity on, but then you realize that it was nothing you did ― your partner was simply selfish and made a choice knowing it would devastate you.
If you've been cheated on, you may still be reeling from all of it. And unless you have someone who's been there to talk to, you may also be feeling utterly alone. That's why you need these 17 quotes to get you through. Words can be your greatest ally and your greatest protection, so take solace in the writings of others who have been there, too.
