How to Look on the Bright Side

I don’t know about you, but I am so sick of reading about celebrity infidelity. It’s always such a bummer to see how one person’s life is turned completely upside down and in the meantime, obtaining a comment is a reporter’s biggest concern. Yes, people cheat. Yes, according to the news and supermarket magazine stands, if you’re a politician, you will cheat; if you’re a famous athlete, you will cheat; if you own a motorcycle shop, you will cheat. A person’s profession is almost turning into an explanation for infidelity (that and the infamous and overly-used excuse of being a sex “addict”). I am worried that we as a society are falling into a spiral where we can’t fully believe in our partners, because everyone seems to be unfaithful these days.

Jesse James (the turd who cheated on Sandra Bullock) is quoted in Men’s Journal as saying, “I cheated on my wife. Guess what, so do millions of other men.” Thank you Jesse, for that fascinating insight! Do I really need to use the Brooklyn Bridge analogy here? It’s difficult to pinpoint exactly how many people cheat on their significant others. Regardless, I can tell you that there are politicians who remain faithful, there are famous athletes who remain faithful and there are motorcycle shop owners who remain faithful. So why don’t we as a society ever concentrate on the good guys (and gals)? Whatever happened to having idealism and hope in other people?
