Oh, where to begin…? The ending of celebrity and politico affairs like the John Edwards – Rielle Hunter scandal is always the same: people get caught pretending to love people. Affairs are not about love, but about the people involved.
Innocent spouse people get hurt. Guilty spouse people show crocodile tears and false humility. Some people ask other people to fake DNA tests to cover the truth. Then, peer people write tell-alls, while others go on people talk shows to tell viewer people why people are just people, and that people make “mistakes”. And, sometimes, little baby people are born, too. And grownup people realize the word “mistake” should not be attributed to baby people.
Adulterous people and all sorts of after-the-fact people like to say people terms like “mistake” when they get caught doing something people knowingly do, and they like to say “put this behind us” and “move on” so other people will not dwell on their “mistake” long enough to actually make it meaningful or educational, let alone loving or real.
When big mommy grownup people get their expenses paid for the rest of the little baby person’s life, is it any wonder that female people become mommy people by “falling for” male celebrity people?
Enough “people” talk. Let’s see how love fits into all this – with people bumping into one another in the name of it. Love is about wanting the best for the object of your love. While the object of your affection may be an affair, the object of your love should be you, your children, your spouse, your spiritual higher power, and chocolate. Love is as love does. If you want what is best for your mate’s happiness and well-being, and truly love yourself and your family and life itself, you will give to those people and things first, most and always, and consider their happiness in everything you do.
So, if loving your mate is becoming a burden or an avoidance for you, checkout yourself and that relationship, before seeking a new one. Balance it, or improve it, or decide to leave it behind, before following your instincts or weaknesses with a new partner. That’s painful for your spouse too, but at least it’s open and shows more consideration for their heartbreak than doing whatever you want, behind their loving back. Hearing yourself speak the words out loud that you are thinking of pursuing feelings for someone else is an honest people thing to do. Falling into sex with someone is a basic people thing. Falling in love is a more advanced people thing, and truly loving someone should include protection of their stake in your bond.
Apparently, people who live high profile lives and carry on low profile affairs don’t value people enough to use people birth control. Or, perhaps they don’t value the future people life they are creating when they openly discuss getting their mistress people pregnant? If it is a conscious decision, it is sefl-centered. If it is an unplanned pregnancy, it is done by people who have tons of money and fame, but not enough room in their wallet for a condom. Since fifth grade health class didn’t stick with these people, perhaps their random decisions are reflective of their lack of attention.
So, who has a right to judge people’s affairs of the heart, or the groin? The baby people being brought into it, that’s who. Someday, John Edwards says, he hopes his daughter with Rielle (baby Francis Quinn), will “understand” everything. (His announcement about being her father was made public just before a peer people published a tell-all.)
Good luck to all the people who have become pawns in the game of love. Love is not a mistake, and lovers are not mistaken about what they are doing. If an affair is about two people falling in love, and it leads to a lifetime of love for those lovers, then let’s see some loving consideration and communication directed toward the primary relationship first, and stop associating love with lust relationships built on deceit and despair.
A single thought: Your Honor, The People rest.
