In light of recent events, I'm putting everything, or as much as I can here. I'm not revealing all of my private life for the world to see, but enough so when people ask me what is going on, I can point here and say "READ!"

Last week, my girlfriend broke up with me. I wasn't too broken up. The drama some people were causing, the drama from her own family, and so on was starting to wear on me. I'll move on. Less than a week ago from this moment in time, I found out she had been cheating on me with one my friends during the last month we were dating. Stop and read that sentence a few times for it to sink in.

Cheating is horrible in itself, but it doesn't end there. My ex is trying to justify it. My "friend" never told me anything. Now they're dating. To top it off, people that I know and some I don't are defending them. I've told that "it's my fault she was cheating on me" and that "I didn't let her break up with me". Those are exact sentences.

Now, I'm not going to say I'm the perfect person in the world. I don't put up with bullshit and have very little tact. I can be a "shoot first, ask questions later" kind of person. Ask any of my friends. However, I don't cheat and lie on the people I date. There's some things you just shouldn't do. Cheating is one of them. Trying to justify it is worse. I let myself fall for this girl, busted my ass for her, and dropped everything when she was sick or upset. I gave more to this girl than I'd rather admit, and to hear that it's my fault that she cheated and eventually broke up on me, that I'm a bad person, that I'm a failure is just... I can't think of the right words.

This is the story, minus some specific details that very few people need to know.
