It’s happened to the best of us. Those fleeting moments when your spirit tells you that your partner may be cheating on or lying to you. It’s a weird feeling ain’t it? A feeling that makes you question everything you know to be true in life. When this feeling shows up some people talk to a trusted friend to get their opinion on how to approach the situation; while others may not tell a single soul.
And then you have the other people…
You already know who they are. Some of you reading this right now may be “the other people.” The ones who feel justified looking through their partner’s cell phone, email, FB accounts, instagram, twitter, etc. to “find the truth.” The “truth” these people say they are seeking is some sort of confirmation that their partner has been cheating, usually in the form of naked pictures taken in a dirty bathroom or explicit text messages about having sex in the backseat of a car while on lunch breaks.
And then it happens. You find something. You find something that confirms what you already knew. You already knew they were cheating because your spirit told you so. That’s why you went snooping in the first damn place, right?
So I ask the question: is it right to invade someone’s privacy when you think they are cheating? Here is a better question: why don’t you trust your spirit when it first tells you something isn’t right? Why do you NEED the outside confirmation? Is it that you don’t trust your spirit? Maybe that’s it! Maybe you don’t trust your spirit and that’s how you got into this situation. Maybe your spirit told you not to mess with this person in the first place and you didn’t listen then! So, maybe the real issue isn’t that you don’t trust your partner, but that you don’t trust yourself…. I know, I know, you’re not really going to admit that that’s the reason you went through their stuff. But there is a reason, and it is probably much deeper than “I just needed to know for sure.”
Court is now in session.
