Cheating on someone you love is not as fun as it might have sounded before you found yourself in over your head. The guilt is almost unbearable. You still love the person you happen to be cheating on and yet you feel like there is something you're getting from the other person that you just can't get at home.

How do you live with the guilt?

In the best case scenario you stop the cheating as soon as possible. It might seem attractive or even like something you can't live without but you need to decide now which you can better live without. The person that you consider your partner or the person you happen to be seeing on the side?

One of them is going to have to go unless you can talk your partner into some very understanding and unconventional terms. My guess is your partner isn't going to be interested in sharing and might be more than a little unhappy that the thought even entered your mind.
The first step in dealing with the guilt though is in eliminating the need for the guilt. The best way to do this is to get rid of the other person and renew your efforts to build a stronger relationship with your partner.

To Tell or not to Tell Your Partner

This is a hotly debated point. If you're doing it only to get rid of the guilt then it might be a bad idea. Why hurt your partner for your own selfish reasons when you were the one in the wrong? If you're telling your partner because you really believe there should be no secrets between the two of you and you owe it to your partner to let him or her know that's another reason altogether. Just make sure you aren't talking yourself into something you don't really believe in order to lighten your own burden.

Living with the Guilt

It's not supposed to be easy to live with the guilt of cheating on the person you are supposed to love above all others. Like many things in life there really is only one way to do it: one day at a time. You take each day as it comes, hope for a better future, and change your ways so you don't find yourself in the same place tomorrow. Yes. It really can be that simple if you let it.
