Tiger Woods and infidelity

Posted in Uncategorized by Diana on February 21, 2010

Tiger finally emerged from his cage: Tiger Woods breaks his silence and admits to cheating.

Tiger Woods used to be the exception. He used to be a standup guy that everyone wanted to be around, on and off the golf course. As it turns out, he’s not invincible and indestructible. He self-destructed.

I heard someone say once, “I’ll change when the right girl comes around” in reference to his infidelity. It bothers me so much when people refuse to accept responsibility for their actions. It’s so disrespectful to the person you’re in a relationship with. If you’re no longer interested in being committed, then end the relationship because you’re unhappy. Don’t mislead or string someone along because you don’t want to be alone. It’s inconsiderate and immature. Rather than admit they were wrong, I’ve seen people justify, even outright deny, their behavior. Don’t blame another person and don’t be a coward –  take responsibility for your actions.

Everyone makes mistakes. It’s what you do after committing that mistake that matters – admit and learn from it, or deny and repeat it.

Needless to say, I don’t think very highly of Tiger anymore. In my mind, he’s in a separate category now, keeping company with the likes of Bill Clinton and Kobe Bryant. Men who are exceptionally talented but unfaithful to their spouse and inconsiderate of their family.

As for the women who were involved,  they knew who Tiger was when they met him. They knew he was married and had a family, yet still they maintained a relationship with him. No sympathies.
