These people from Ask Reddit dodged a bullet.

1. The guy she cheated on me with cheated on her. Petty, I know, but hey, karma.

2. Found out recently that my first ex who was physically/mentally/emotionally abusive to me, cheated on me throughout the relationship, and put me into financial ruin for years cause of his gambling is going to jail for attempted murder, carrying illegal substance (meth) and a whole lot of other charges.

Trace the scars life has left you. It will remind you that at one point, you fought for something. You believed.

“You are the only person who gets to decide if you are happy or not—do not put your happiness into the hands of other people. Do not make it contingent on their acceptance of you or their feelings for you. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter if someone dislikes you or if someone doesn’t want to be with you. All that matters is that you are happy with the person you are becoming. All that matters is that you like yourself, that you are proud of what you are putting out into the world. You are in charge of your joy, of your worth. You get to be your own validation. Please don’t ever forget that.” — Bianca Sparacino
