Are You Afraid Of What Family Or Friends Will Say?

I am not the kind of person who worries about what my family or friends think of me because that's just who I am, but when it came to my ex husband cheating on me, I did wonder what they were thinking. I wondered if they may have thought it was my fault for not being able to keep him from cheating on me. I, of course, wanted them to help me through that horrible mess. One thing is true, and that's that no matter what anybody says, even when trying to console you, it helps but it doesn't change the situation. If your partner is cheating on you, not even words can change that. You find yourself struggling to figure out what to do about the cheating going on behind your back. Family and friends most often have alot of words of wisdom, but not always the best solutions. What I did, was gather all the info I could, then make my own decision about what was to be done....however, nothing changes if BOTH partners don't want to make it work. Just remember, let your family and friends help you through this hard period of time, but they cannot make the decision about your life.... that is your decision to make.

Interesting question. I think a lot of people are afraid of what friends and family will say about a lot of things; not just this issue. But yet, no one can control another person, yet we are all so quick to give our solutions to lots of issues.

I heard once that advice is a great thing when you ask someone for it; yet the worst advice is when people give it to you, even though you didn't ask. Maybe that's why many are afraid to tell family and friends (because they'll go ahead and give out their advice--even if you didn't ask for it!)
