Hi, I'm another newbie to this group. I've never been married, but I have cheated on the people I have been in relationships with either emotionally or physcially. The last time I did it I finally came out of my "fog" and now realize the train wrecks I have caused in those people's lives and what a selfish immature person I am. I hate myself for what I have done and I know no amount of apologies to those people can ever erase the hurt and pain I have caused these people and to myself. I've taken a hard look at myself and why I did what I did and whether it be out of insecurity, lonliness, needing an ego boost, or some other selfish reason, that's still no excuse. How do you get over the shame and guilt of cheating on people? Or is it kind of a punishment to never forget what cheating does to the other person and you?
