What if I had been the one who made a mistake, I wanted to tell my significant other but I knew it would end our relationship, would I allow the guilt eat away at me, in order to preserve the relationship or would I risk everything just to be honest? Is honesty really the best policy?
Society encourages to "walk a mile in someone else’s shoes" but only when it is convenient. When it comes to fidelity, we more often than not blame the cheater rather than examine the relationship. I believe that, although cheating may be forgivable to some, it is unforgettable to most. I’ve never crossed the line but I’ve walked on the border once or twice; it took months to live down the guilt of an almost.
If someone has enough courage to admit their wrongs, don’t we at least owe it to each other to examine the relationship more closely?
