I watched the On the Run Tour the other night.
Beyonce sang the song ’ Resentment ‘
about how one has been lied to in a relationship, the deep hurt and the difficulty of forgiveness.
She sang the song brilliantly.
And what I found interesting is that the song deals with a partner’s affair.
One of the lyrics in the song is ’ bitch’. The other woman is the bitch for having the affair with the partner.
It’s interesting that the ’ other woman’ is always blamed for’ taking a man away’
How a woman will become enraged with the ’ other woman’.
And I just don’t get that train of thought.
Does the ’ other woman’ come in the middle of the night, kidnap him at gunpoint and throw a pillowcase over his head as she leads him out of the bedroom?
Does she knock him out, cave woman style and drag him away by his hair?
Why isn’t it seen for truly exactly what it is?
The ’other woman ’ isn’t your competition.
Because there is no competition when someone walks away.
That is called ‘choice’.
The male partner, chose to look elsewhere.
Deeply hurtful… But simple.
It truly has nothing to do with the ’ other woman’ and everything to do with him and his view of his relationship with his partner.
