Being Faithful Isn’t Just About Not Cheating… Here’s What It Really Means
“Those who are faithful know only the pleasures of love: it is the faithless who know love’s tragedies.”
– Oscar Wilde
Being faithful is not just about not cheating on your partner physically.
It is much more than that. True faithfulness means putting your partner before anyone else and making the effort to show them just how much they mean to you every day.
Faithfulness means choosing to spend most of your time with your other half and working on your relationship than hanging out with friends at a bar and flirting with strangers. Being in love with someone means not hesitating to tell the whole world about it.
Being faithful is about not hesitating to talk about any- and everything with your partner.
It means opening up to them about your worries and problems and finding ways to fight through hard times as a team.
Being loyal to your partner means telling them about how your day went, including that chit chat you had with the woman/man who was trying to flirt with you, but you told them that your heart belongs to someone else.
Faithfulness is about knowing your own and your partner’s boundaries and never trampling through them.
Nothing can hold you back from spending time with people from the opposite sex, but if you are hiding your phone because you’re afraid of your partner’s reaction when they see a message from an admirer of yours, then that is clearly wrong. How would you feel if they did the same to you? Never cause them the pain that you wouldn’t be able to handle yourself.
This is why you must keep in mind that being loyal is not about never causing your partner emotional pain. It is about not letting another person into your heart and mind because you already have someone who fills that space.
Being faithful is about feeling a sense of fulfillment just by thinking of spending time with your significant other.
True loyalty is about not allowing yourself to get seduced by other people just because you see those around you easily giving into cheating. It is about thinking with your head and your heart and not with your basic instincts.
It is hard to find a faithful partner in the modern world – such people are rare, to say the least, but that shouldn’t discourage anyone looking for true love.
Be honest and loyal. No one deserves to be lied to and cheated on. If your feelings for your partner are fading, let them know and maybe try to work things out if it isn’t too late. But do not play with them and do not betray them.
And always keep in mind: the best thing in life is to have someone faithful by our side that we can hold tight until the end of days.
