Julie’s Journal

Part Two

Women justify having an affair by saying; but I love him. While men justify an affair by saying; but I didn’t love her. Does anyone ever think about the consequences? Is a single affair more forgivable than numerous affairs? I say every one of your affairs left me feeling like Lizzie Borden with cramps!

When I was five, a man raped me. That was nothing compared to your affairs. The rapist was a stranger. You, Dan, I thought were my best friend.

When I saw you with bottom feeder #1, my mind and my body were in shock. Why didn’t I draw the line right then and there? Do I even have a line?

Now I am confronted with bottom feeder #2. You say you are done, and you want me back.

Most men are drawn to another woman not for love or intimacy but for their own feeling of less worth. Please explain to me how bottom feeder #3 can make you feel better about yourself?

Oh, Dan, bottom feeder #4 had nothing on me. Once again, you have hit me with the trauma of infidelity.

I’m forced to ask myself this, if you are unwilling to discuss why the affairs happened, then aren’t you also saying that our relationship is built on sand? Because learning about bottom feeder #5 was not a day at the beach for me.

It is like I am consumed by hate. Tell me do you really like me this way?
