Dear Bruised and Broken Hearted people of Internet Land,…
Following the success of my experimental ‘Hello’ video, I decided to put my next blog subject to video. I’m having fun with this whole filming and editing process, and I think I’m getting better at it. I’d love to hear your thoughts, comments and experiences. What would you do if you knew someone’s partner was cheating on them?
In my video I address three common approaches:
- Say nothing.
- Tell the cheating partner you know what they’ve done and give an ultimatum for them to be honest.
- Go directly to the person being cheated on and tell them what you know.
A couple of things I don’t mention in my video is that if you do decide to intervene in an unfaithful relationship, make sure you KNOW for sure or have at least seen the infidelity for yourself. You don’t want to jeopardise someone’s relationship on a mere hunch. Any evidence you can provide is a huge help.
Also, be prepared for to be called a liar, and be prepared to lose one or more friendships. Not everyone reacts well to the truth. With that said, life doesn’t always unfold in an instantaneous way. You never know, though things might get ugly for a while, your friend may well thank you in time.
In my video I also relay a personal story on this subject. In short, not everyone wants to shoot the bearer of bad news. Someone of us will be forever grateful to those who pluck up the courage to share what they know.
Take a look at my video here:
