I heard from a friend that my boyfriend is cheating on me with my best friend! Valentine's Day is coming up and I don't know what to do. Should I break up with him before Valentine’s Day or wait till after? Or break up with him on Valentine’s Day? He makes me happy. Should I just let it go? I also don't know what to do with my best friend. We have history. Should I let her go? Please help me.
Lies and Distrust
Dear Lies and Distrust,
First of all, you don't need a man to feel happy. Remember self-love is all the happiness you need. Yes, feeling love feels great but what he did is not okay. I understand that Valentine's Day is coming up and honestly Valentine's Day isn't just about having a boyfriend but it's about sharing love with someone, which could mean a friend, family member, or even a pet. Don't feel pressured to keep someone just because you want someone for Valentine’s Day. They did you wrong and you have to accept that. But before breaking up or doing anything drastic you need to confirm that this is true. Just because a friend told you doesn't always mean it's true. There are multiple sides to the story. If it is true then you should break up with him as soon as possible. As well as your best friend. This betrayal goes both ways. She knew you two were together and did it anyway. Don't feel obligated to keep someone just because you have history. If they hurt you then maybe they shouldn't be part of your life. Lastly, I know this is super hard – believe me I've been there – but it feels great after. You'll feel bad and think it's a mistake but it'll go away after you find people that really care about you. I wish you the best of luck on your journey. If you need anything else please feel free to contact us on our Mayfair Windjammer instagram.
