A lot has happened since my last post. I didn't really find the time to write anything because I was busy turning things around for myself. On February 22nd, I found out Emily really did cheat on me. I tricked her into revealing the truth to me. I think it's pretty clear what happened after I found out, but I will explain it anyway.
I still had the gut feeling that she was hiding something from me and that it was possible that her story about Leon was true. So I downloaded a texting app and sent messages to her pretending to be Leon. Then I sent messages to myself, still pretending to be Leon, and confronted her about them. She folded and told me everything. Obviously, I do not believe she told me everything because she still wanted a relationship with me. I talked to her for 2 days after she revealed the truth to me because I wanted to see her beg for my forgiveness. She sounded so delusional when I told her it was over for good this time; she kept saying things like, "Think of our kids", "Think of our future", "You know you love me, don't say that you don't", and "No, we aren't 'over'". I don't know why she thought she had a chance of getting my forgiveness. Since then I have not spoken to her once; I blocked her number. I have been so happy since we stopped talking. It is beyond clear that she was holding me back in life. She did nothing but try to keep me away from my friends and always made me feel like I was a terrible person. Now I see how wrong she was for me, not to mention she's a little messed up in the head.
Life has been good to me since the break up. I've been going out a lot with all of my friends, work is pleasant for me, and I met a new girl. I really could not ask for better. If only I would have found it in me to leave her sooner... With the way things are going, life is only going to get better. I am so optimistic about life now. I am going to take my past as a learning experience so I never make the same mistakes again. I am unstoppable!
