I just found out that my boyfriend of 2 years cheated on me multiple times. He was my first, and I loved him deeply. I really wanted to be with him for the rest of my life. Or maybe that was my young naive self believing that it could be possible for your first to be your only in life and love. It doesn't matter now anyways.
Bad timing to find out now since I'm still in school full-time. It's been a tough semester already, and I was already having a hard time with my courses prior to finding out about his unfaithfulness. I detest them, and I guess that has contributed to my poor marks right now. And I was always one to get high marks. These courses just weren't clicking with me.
What are some ways to power through this? Tips to motivation? Ways to cope? I wish it could be 2 months from now but until then, I have papers to write and finals to study for. I don't think professors will excuse a person's performance on the fact their boyfriend/girlfriend cheated on him/her, nor should that be a legitimate excuse to do poorly.
I just want to fly away to somewhere far from here. Or maybe just sleep until this pain goes away. But I can't. I HAVE to do well, or at least try to do the best I can, in these courses. It's crunch time.
