Confessions of The “Other Woman”
“Hi, Angel Vicky! I’m one of the likers of your page Ti Voglio Bene. I read your blogs and found them simple but expressive and touchy. I wish I could also write like you but then I don’t have the guts:( So I thought of sending you this message to ask a favor from you. May you write a blog for me? Below are the details of my story. I hope it won’t give you a hard time organizing them. I look forward in granting my request and I would be very grateful if you do so.

This is a private message I received from one of our followers. Unfortunately, she doesn’t want her name to be mentioned so let’s just call her Bella. And here is her story.
My name is Bella. I’m 30 years old with a son. I’m married to his father but been separated for seven years now. He works in Dubai and lives with another woman. Since he left us, I assume all the responsibility for my child. I am employed in a private company in Cavite and with this, I’m very grateful that somehow I could provide our everyday needs. I don’t mind the difficulties of being a single parent, as long as it is for our own good, I really strive hard.
And since I am busy being a career-mom, I don’t give time anymore for love. Pero sa totoo lang marami pa rin namang nanliligaw sa akin. Siguro kasi sabi nila bata pa naman daw ako, maganda, maputi, at balingkinitan ang aking katawan. Kaya lang naisip ko, kasal ako at inabandona tapos meron pa akong anak, sino pa kaya magmamahal sa isang tulad ko?
Until I met Roel. He’s a Medical Doctor. I met him in the private clinic of my son’s Pediatrician. We had a few chat then while waiting for my son’s Pedia (he and the Pediatrician are friends). Roel is handsome, sensible and warm. And before I leave, he took my mobile number and said, “thank you for the time.”
We became friends later on and we go out often. By then, I learned that he was married with two kids. We share the same “likes” in almost everything, especially about outlooks in life. And just like me, his children are his priority. And because of being close to him, I cannot avoid to confide on him about all my problems. And so as he. Nalaman ko na matagal na palang hindi maganda ang pagsasama nilang mag-asawa. Iyon ay dahil sa paglulustay ng pera ng asawa niya.
At dahil nga sa pagiging malapit namin, hindi nagtagal ay may nabuong pag-ibig sa pagitan naming dalawa. Hindi namin inaasahan na makakaramdam kami ng ganito ngunit hindi din namin sinasadya na mahalin ang isa’t isa. Kusa naming naramdaman sa hindi maipaliwanag na dahilan. Actually, we even tried to resist our feelings, lalo na ako dahil alam kong may asawa siya, and I know how painful it is. But everytime we were so down in despair, we can’t help but stay in each others’ arms and feel the comfort and love.
Mahal namin ang isa’t-isa at ayaw naming masira ang relasyong ito, so we agreed to keep this just between the two of us. I mean no one among our families or anybody who knows us that we are having an affair. Because we believe, in this way we couldn’t hurt anyone or ruin the lives of our love ones.
Yes, indeed I’m in love with a married man and I’m a certified family wrecker. Any one reading this would find me stupid. But what should I do? I don’t want to lose Roel. I also wanted to feel again how it is to love and be loved. Actually, I envy other women (including Roel’s wife) who found a man who would never leave them. And now that I have a lovelife that I would cherish,whatever consequences awaits, I won’t hesitate to share it with his legal wife, and I won’t mind to be called a mistress, a third-party or the “other woman.”
This whole story was copied and pasted directly from my Facebook messenger. Some changes were done on spelling and grammar. I hope you like Bella’s story and feel free to make comments or give her advice.
