Have you ever been completely oblivious to a situation that is taking place right behind your back? You think that everything is going just fine in your perfect little world. You have everything planned out and it seems to be working out right on track. Then all of a sudden you discover something so devastating that it changes your whole life, and everything you worked at for nearly a year. This is exactly how I felt when I found out that my girlfriend had been cheating on me. I felt like everything I had worked so hard to establish had been gone, and that I was all alone. My life was going along perfectly.
I was in the middle of soccer season. My team was destined for the District Championship, and already claimed the Laurel Highlands Championship. I had an amazing girlfriend, who I cared for a lot, and thought she cared about me. She was a junior at Westmont, and also played soccer. She was slightly shorter than me with long blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes. I constantly spending time with her, despite all of my time spent practicing for soccer.
My life was focused on her and keeping our relationship a happy one. There was not a day that went by that I did not take the time to at least talk to her for a while, no matter what I had to do. It was the happiest time of my life. I was a totally different person.
I was nicer to everyone, and cared a lot more about what was going on around me. Before my girlfriend I was just a quiet shy kid that did not really talk to anyone. She really helped me to come out and talk to people and be a lot nicer person. I was almost certain I finally had a relationship that I thought would last more than just a couple of months. Maybe this would even be the one person I would spend my life with. That’s how strong our relationship was.
In his poem, "Fern Hill," Dylan Thomas shows us how the enjoyment of life becomes a memory as time goes on. The theme of the story has taken two colors green and gold, green being when a person is young and gold being when a person is old. However, most people would just read half of the paper and say that the poem was about childhood and the people who read the poem thoroughly would argue that it ...
I was trying my hardest to make sure that this would be true. For nearly a year, our relationship was amazing. Everything was working out perfectly. We had plenty of time to spend together and we were never really apart. I had just made the choice to come to UP meaning that I could be home and spend time with her. I would never make a choice that important, such as a college and my future based on another person, so that had nothing to do with it.
Anyway, I would be staying here in the area so we would both be together seeing how she still had another year of high school to get through. Well, after about a year of our happy relationship it just seemed as if, it was not going along so “happy” anymore. We were always having little fights and just not agreeing on a lot of things anymore for some reason. I cannot really say that I am an expert on relationships, so I just figured that it was just a rough spot in our relationship. My girlfriend had just started a new job, and I felt she might have been a little stressed by it seeing how she was working a lot more and our time together was cut down. Over the weeks our relationships slowly started to get worse and worse.
I could not for the life of me figure out why all of a sudden things just were not working out. It seemed as if my girlfriend just stopped caring. We would go on for days with out seeing each other or even talking. I would call to talk to her, and there would be no answer. Messages I would leave would never be returned. I just kept thinking to myself that she was just busy with her work, and being a junior stressed out about college.
Well, to my surprise, my girlfriend did not just stop caring about me. She had already started caring about someone else. Sadly, I had found out from one of my friends, and one of my girlfriends close friends, that she had been cheating on me with a co-worker, for almost a month now. After confronting her about this with my friend, she had admitted that it was all true. Wow, I could not even begin to believe this. She now lost two of the most important people in her life, her best friend and me.
Tens of thousands, or one million? How many people will we meet in a whole lifetime, and how many of them do we have relationships with? Every person is born into a family without their choice, so they try to keep a good relationship with all family members to live happily, but sometimes it can be a misfortune for some people to get along with family members. However, we can choose to have good a ...
She wanted nothing to do with someone that would hurt me like that. My life was completely torn apart. My performances drastically began to decline in both my soccer games, and my schoolwork. I just could not get my mind off this.
It was too much to handle at a time where I had so much other pressure on me, with soccer and being a senior in high school. I felt like I was all alone, even though I would still hang out and do things with my friends. It took me quite some time to actually be able to trust anyone again, which sometimes hurt me in other relationships. How could I have been so blind that all of this was going on right behind me for almost a month? It was so obvious to me now that I can look back on it and think about all that went on. However, when you love someone that much, that’s the last thing you would think of. After this was all said and done I began to realize how easy it is to be totally blind to a situation.
Before this had all happened I always used to think, wow, how stupid could someone be to not know that their girlfriend, or boyfriend, is cheating on them. Well, I guess I found out the hard way that it is not that easy to realize what is going on right behind your back. Maybe I knew about it all along, maybe I am really not as blind as I think, maybe I was not clueless to it at all, and I just would not let myself believe that it was really true. How could someone that you care about so much, do something that heartless to you? It is almost unbelievable that a person can be that cruel. I spent a little over a year of my life caring and dedicating a great part of my life to this person. However, right behind me for nearly a month my life was drastically changing, and I had no idea of what was to come.
When my girlfriend cheated on me, I felt totally blind to the world. I was lost in my own world, and felt completely alone. The worst feeling I have ever experienced throughout my life was when this happened, and I hope I never have to go through anything like this again.
