I think I was about 17 when Eric Benet and Halle Berry divorced. I distinctly remember my jaw dropping over a bowl of Frosted Flakes one morning when I heard the news on the radio that he had supposedly cheated on her. And then it hit me. Even Halle Berry wasn’t safe from infidelity. Over the years, as I’ve grown and come to understand more about relationships and life in general, I realized that no matter what you look like – you can always be cheated on. Droves of drop dead gorgeous Hollywood women experience infidelity with their rapper, ball player and actor boyfriends/husbands as do everyday beautiful women and their truck driver, corporate 9-5, blue-collar men.
If Hollywood taught me anything it’s that you should never break a sweat changing anything about your physical appearance to appeal to anyone if the end goal is landing a faithful significant other or somehow beating out the competition so you’re looking better than 43% of the female population in your city. At most, one’s best bet for finding or being found by someone who isn’t a serial cheater, means practicing the art of radical self-love as a means to becoming your most authentic self.
At the end of the day, ass injections, breast implants, killer abs and the most expensive weave can only go but so far. You still need to be a decent human being under all the body work and even decent human beings aren’t exempt from the game. Just remember your destiny isn’t tied to anyone who leaves your life, or anyone you remove from your life via divorce papers for being a serial cheater.
