Broke up with my gf but that’s not the saddest part.
The saddest about the break up was that I am practically cut off from her family. I’m close to her parents and her younger brother.
Her family is very disappointed in my ex cause she cheated due to “woman empowerment” reasons (Yeah I don’t get it either).
Her family wanted to meet me for the last time (It was just last night).
Her family told me that they already looked at me as a part of their family. They were looking forward for me to be married to my ex back then. But now, it’s not gonna happen. They repeatedly apologize for not being good parents to my ex. “I don’t know what went wrong. But it’s our fault. We’re so sorry” they said. I had to tell them that it’s not their fault and my ex made the choice to cheat.
But life goes on. I told them that whoever it is my ex will end up with, please accept that guy. But they said it’ll be hard as they really love me. When I’m about to go, her younger brother, 10 years old, asked me if I’ll be back to play games with him.
I had no words. I hugged him and told him maybe someday in the future we shall play games together again. He cried and apologized to me for his sister’s action. “I will never forgive her. You were supposed to be a part of our family”.
I simply told him to take the time to forgive her and know that everyone made mistakes.
And so I said my goodbyes. And went home. As I reached home, I cried so hard. I’m already sad that my ex cheated, but to be practically cut off from her family just adds more salt to the wound.
I guess, life must go on either ways. I will now focus on myself.
