When Duston Holloway walked in on his girlfriend, passed out in his bed with another man, you could have forgiven him for totally losing his shit. Instead, Holloway did something pretty strange and yet, we have to say, quite cool. He took a series of selfies and other pictures before posting them on Facebook
He has since taken them down, but that’s the power of the internet. Once you post something on social media, it’s fair game.
The pics came with the stylish caption: “When you come home to another man in your bed with the one you loved! Good men deserve good women.
“I calmly just took selfies and walked like a boss. I did tap her to wake her up but she was drunk as a skunk passed out … I was gonna ask if I was gonna have to sleep in the spare bedroom and what kinda breakfast the dude liked lmao.”
“It was wrong, it did suck, but being the better person is always the best way. The best feeling is when someone appreciated everything about you that someone took for granted,” Duston Holloway.
What would you do if you found your partner cheating?
Holloway, from Emory, Texas, did well to keep his cool under the circumstances. On this evidence alone, he’s pretty much the physical embodiment of a centered, decent man that most women would consider a catch.
If your girlfriend is cheating, then it’s easy to get wrapped up in a spiral of negative thoughts. If you actually walk in on the act then there are plenty of people sitting behind bars right now who will tell you how easy it is to lose the plot entirely and hurt them.
Cheaters simply don’t respect anything
But the truth is, as Holloway said, that you just have to look at the fact that you invested in the wrong person. They don’t place any stock on integrity, faithfulness and honesty. They really don’t have the character to survive a relationship and when you catch them then you really have to think that you’ve dodged a bullet in the long run.
It can be a painful moment, I’ve been there myself, but lashing out really isn’t the answer. Nor is pretending it didn’t happen.
The only thing you can do when you find out that your wife or girlfriend is cheating is to cut them from your life. There is no excuse and if there is no comeback then you’ve basically given them permission to do it again. If they’re a shitty person, then they will.
Toxic people will drag you down
The longer you allow toxic people in your life, the more you’ll become conditioned to accept their behavior. It becomes the norm and that will do untold damage to your self-esteem in the long run.
So never accept behavior like this, but don’t take it as a personal injury either. Some people just aren’t up to your standard and when you find that out you have to wish them well, forgive them and get them the fuck out of your life as quickly as humanly possible.
Unless, of course, you want to stop and snap a few selfies first…
