I am not saying that anyone should keep a relationship with someone who betrays you, I am saying that I wouldn't let what that person did reflect on who I am as a person. I could sit here and berate myself for being with Andrey, there were so many whispers and nudges in the beginning, how could I miss them. I won't though, I recognize that I am a good person, I believe that people are all good inherently until they show me otherwise.
I could have let the whole thing with Andrey destroy me but than I would never have taken the chance to be with my David and see that all men are not created equal. All men are not out to hurt me and truthfully I even wonder if Andrey was out to hurt me in the beginning or if he just disliked himself so much that he has no self esteem and lashed out. Whatever it was with him, I am not taking that on myself.
I won't allow betrayal by one person to destroy my trust in others...
