Second Best

So let’s talk about cheating for a while. Yes, I am talking about relationships and no I am not talking about physical cheating where one of the partners has a sexual relationship with someone else. I hope your moral compass is tuned enough to know that is wrong! Unless you are in an open relationship, but even then the rules need to be laid out.

What I am talking about here is when someone is attracted to some one else outside their relationship, and are fully aware of those “moral borders” but still proceeds to spend time with the other person. “Tricky” I hear you say? Hey, I never said this was going to be simple 😉

Love is complicated at the best of times, and time puts it to the test. Sometimes people fall for each others in a particular situation, and when that situation is taken away, they might realise that situation was the only thing they had in common. Also people can grow in different directions, and one day you realise you have very little in common.

When these things happen, person can (sometimes unconsciously) start to look for emotional fulfilment from somewhere else. And when this happens, the relationship is in dangerous waters. This weeks song “Second Best” looks at the situation from the perspective of the person who felt they became the second best and the consequences of treating someone that way.

Now obviously if you have children, it is your responsibility to your children to try to fix the relationship. Hopefully you can do this before someone actually starts looking for that emotional fulfilment outside the relationship. But if there are no children involved and you find yourself in this situation, you need to ask your self if you should be in a relationship in the first place…
