Be Positive About the Future

Change is made for a reason. You do not leave behind a good thing. The reason you have decided to make a change is because your mind directed you in path to a better life. Trust your instincts because it is amazingly efficient in guiding us in the right direction.

Wake up each and every morning by saying the words, "Today is bright and beautiful. I will be happy and vibrant today." Say this even on the gloomiest of days. It’s all about being positive.

Eliminate All Resentment

You will have a buildup of resentment for the low life of a boyfriend that cheated on you but understand that the longer you keep this resentment with you, the longer it will take for you to become happy again.

Choose to forgive him. This does not mean to get back with him, just to let go of your resentment. You may want to pray for him as well if you are religious. The moment you finally accept to forgive will be the moment your door to happiness will open.


Life is full of surprises, disappointments, and joys. Learn to tackle and accept all aspects of life and you will have more control in your life. Getting over a cheating boyfriend will not be easy but with your success plan in place you are way ahead of the game. Good Luck!
