Heartbreaks are never easy. But, cheating certainly hurts way more than falling out of love. And if you have been together with someone for many years, the pain can be unbearable. So, when a woman found her boyfriend of five years curled up in bed with another woman, she was dumbstruck. What she did next has created a huge buzz online.
Confessing her story, the anonymous woman shared the entire fiasco on Reddit. The woman had gone to her then-boyfriend’s flat one morning to surprise him with breakfast and his favourite game. But instead, she witnessed something so unimaginable that she ended up “ghosting” him. Don’t know what it means? It’s a term used to describe when someone suddenly ceases all communication and leaves the other person without any warning. So, after she found him “naked, asleep, with his ex curled up in his arms,” she decided to take the drastic step.
“He didn’t hear me come in, so I closed his bedroom door, and left his breakfast and game on the kitchen counter along with my key to his house,” the Reddit post read. Elaborating on why she took the decision immediately, she said, “I disappeared from his life after his betrayal and I think it’ll not only help me to focus on myself without his presence, but I think completely shutting myself off from him will hurt worse than anything when he thinks on how good he had it with me these last five years.”
Although indianexpress.com couldn’t independently verify if the woman had really ghosted her then-boyfriend, the post garnered much attention on Reddit and was also shared on Twitter where it has now gone viral with over four lakh likes and one lakh retweets, at the time of writing.

While most were shocked by the man’s action, others lauded her for ending the relationship that way and thought it would make him realise what he had done wrong.
Trust me he learned a lesson. Girlfriend of 5 years leaves him with nothing said. He gonna feel that

I woulda took MY breakfast & MY game and left the key somewhere visible lol.. but fr tho you gotta be strong to just drop somebody like that cause in reality you don’t want to but she realized what she had to do

That’s the point though. She wanted to let him know that she saw him by leaving the breakfast and game.

It’s ok if she still thinks about it. She’s a human being who was romantically linked for 5 years to a guy who betrayed her.
If her final decision is to break up with him, then cutting the cord is the best way for her to begin healing.
They have nothing to talk about.

I’ve done stuff like this.
Just admit you have no conviction or personal strength.
It hurts, but doing the right thing is usually hard.

A quote to live by “If you don’t like something, just take away is only power. Your attention…”

Yo, he’s lucky. I would have done the same exact thing except rob him before I left.
