Beyonce’s new album, “Lemonade” about her husband’s infidelity, is blowing up the airwaves. And I’m sure many of you, like me, can relate to the lyrics, . “I tried to change, closed my mouth more, tried to be softer, prettier, less awake…are you cheating on me?”
I so relate to those lyrics. And it doesn’t really shock me that one of the most talented and beautiful woman in the entire world got cheated on too. Because it has nothing to do with the success or the money. Some men just stray. Who knows why? Jealousy? Envy? Secret hatred that makes them want to hurt the woman they are supposed to be faithful to?
I have only speculations and their marriage is not my business. But the topic of infidelity is being talked about for once, so I’m glad about that. Perhaps some expert will come up with the answer. For me, the answer is not the issue. The real subject here is that some men, no matter how fine of a woman they have, are going to cheat no matter what.
For us Leftat50’s, this is old news. Of course it was very shocking when it happened to us. We thought just like Beyonce that if we did all the “right” things with our womanhood we would be irresistible to our men forever. Time and again this theory is disproved.
What is a woman to do? We need to always put ourselves first! No matter if we are married, divorced or single. If we suspect something, we have a right to ask. We have a right to receive a true answer. And if we’ve been lied to and cheated on, we have two choices. Stay or go? A lot of this depends on the cheater of course. The level of the lies, the ugliness of the degree to which they secretly plotted to see the other woman. How special they made her feel. Why her and not me? These are useless questions of course. He will never tell you.
Can you make lemonade with your lemons? Can you live with the sour taste in your mouth? Can you truly live when you are “less awake?”
To each woman her own. I am not in that relationship and I will not pass judgement. I can only say that I am so glad that I passed on the lemonade. Now everyday, I drink in my Freedom.
