Those times when you’re fighting back tears of laughter of the absurdity of the movie, The Other Woman, and also hoping that the script wasn’t written from someone’s experiences because they’re so painful. I was the Cameron character. Dated a guy who courted me, told me he loved me, but I always told him he was acting shady. And then I find out that there’s a reason why. Because he got married. Um, I’m sorry. I must have misheard you. No? I didn’t? You’re married? Awesome. But unlike the movie where hilarity ensues and there’s moral justice, real life involves lots of lies, hurt, and all forms of emotional abuse. When you question anything, they jump to the defense and accuse you of all sorts of things. They make YOU seem like the crazy one, even though the only thing you’ve done is try and make sense of a senseless situation and trust the liar that everything they’ve said since the major lies, is true. But it never is. And you can continue getting mindf*cked by an asshole. Or you can finally see the light. And realize you’ve never lied. You’ve only tried to do the right thing once figuring out what your “relationship” would become. And try to be the best person you can. And realize that you don’t want to constantly be shit on. So you finally get the strength to move on. And ask your friends and family not to ask questions but just to support you because it was the right decision. And surround yourself by those people who don’t lie to you and have always supported you and just want what’s best. Would I have loved to look back on a hilarious plot made for a movie? Maybe. But what’s better is moving on, leaving everything in the past, and learning from the situation so you spot yellow flags and get out before they turn to red flags. And realizing that you being headstrong is OK. And you being picky is OK. And you not wanting to stick around dating guys that aren’t the most amazing guys in the world is OK. And being single because you want to be is OK. And that there will always be assholes, but the one thing they all do is provide learning experiences. And, consistent with ridiculous movies like this one, everything works out in the end.
