Because you were afraid that this relationship would be stronger than the one you had. And because some part of you hoped (even a little bit, admit it) that after everything some lying, sniveling ex put you through, after all the heartbreak and pain, it would at least be for the real thing. Eh -- c'est la vie. What a waste.
Karma is a glorious, universal law
Karma is a sneaky lady and she always comes out on top. There is no escape! So, while you have so much compassion for your ex and the heartache they're surely suffering through… let's just say they had it coming.
Take that, Brangelina! And screw you, Brad.
I'm still sour, but don't really hate the person I was left for (as much)
At the end of the day, it was your cheating ex orchestrating the deception and the leaving -- not the person they left you for. You might have once blamed this third party for breaking up your relationship -- but you've come to realize they have nothing to do with you. Your ex is the asshole.
