I'm A Serial Cheater, And I'm Sorry

I'm a cheater.

I cheat, cheat, and cheat...

In fact, I just cheated last week. Sorry! Cheating is wrong. But it's just partial cheating, okay? And there were mitigating factors.

You're lovely, babe...

All I Do Is Cheat, Cheat, Cheat

Last week, I posted an article as per my usual practice and promise I made from the first day I started writing (three times a month - and exactly on the 1st, 11th and 21st). It was about STRESS.

But what most of you didn't know (except for those who really checked on the day itself - so sorry, my loyal readers!) was that it was incomplete. Yes, I had not finished writing it, yet went on ahead to publish it. For the sake of meeting my deadline. A day or two later, I edited and completed it (with the sneakiness of a love ninja on the streets of Paris).

Yes, I cheated. I broke my promise. How naughty of me!

Well, technically, I would argue it's not a fundamental breach, you know? I did write half of it before the deadline. I had a rough few weeks. Work, stress, long sleepless nights (and not because I'm getting lucky)...

Well, this is not the first time. I've cheated before for... three or four times? I know, I know, repeated minor breaches can amount to a fundamental breach. Look, let's not go legal, okay?

Yes, I cheated - and I'm sorry.

What else do you want me to say? Or do?

... but you're not the only one...

Once You Cheat, You Can't Stop...

Ah ha! What were you thinking? That this was about affairs and adulteries? Well, sorry to disappoint, because it's not.

Feel cheated? I'm a cheater, after all.

Well, alright, I'll talk a little about it, since I'm on this saucy subject.

There are many types of cheating, not just in love. We cheat on our diets. We cheat at gym. We cheat in exams.

It's dangerous to start cheating, no matter how trivial it may be. Once you start cheating on the small things, you'll gradually continue cheating and cheating until you finally cheat on the big things one day...

Yes, cheating is bad. Cheating is addictive. And once it becomes a habit, it's hard to stop. You become an expert in excuses. You get good at saying sorry. You no longer feel the pain of guilt.

So don't start cheating, kids! Cheating can get you into all kinds of trouble, especially when you're an adult. sorry!

Next Time... There Won't Be A Next Time

So please forgive me.

I know, it's easy to say sorry. Much harder to stop doing things to feel sorry about. Hopefully, this is the last time I cheat.

I promise I won't cheat again. But if I do, I'm sorry. So sorry.
