Getting cheated on can make people evil and often unreasonable. Many of us want to get revenge to feel good but very few of us know how to get revenge on a cheater without causing a mess.
You don’t invest time, love, and money into a relationship and your partner just to discover that you have been cheated on. Which is why the urge of getting revenge is only natural.
We, in no way, are implying that breaking the law to take revenge on your cheating partner or ex is justified, rather the only thing we are endorsing here is the negative feelings that come with the news of a cheating partner.
In situations like these, a large number of people, against their better judgment, go for something reckless and end up being in a position worse than before.

Which is why the best way to take revenge on your ex, or ex-to-be is by building a new and happy life for yourself.
Some of the things you can do to take revenge on your cheating partner and regain your inner peace are:
Yes, that is right. A garage sale will help you regain your inner peace. Once your partner is out of your bedroom, the only reminders of his or her deeds are the belongings and the best way to get rid of them is via a garage sale.
You can sell them for a few bucks, but if you just want to get rid of them, put them up in your backyard with a free sign.
It will help you make space for your newly found independence, and piss your ex or partner off. Plus, it will help you get rid of the small reminders you have laying around in your house.
Getting revenge never means going to extreme means and indulging in illegal activities to make your partner suffer. Focusing on yourself, your chakra and your mantra is what will get you the best reward.
Cut Your Partner Off
Cheaters hardly take the blame and always try to pin it on others. In most cases, you don’t even see the slightest of remorse, hence it may be a good idea to cut all ties with your partner and put him or her in your place.
It will also make them feel powerless, which is exactly what you need to do right now.

Of course, since you both were in love, you will miss your partner and may even want to establish contact again, but remember, only a fool goes back to the person who shattered him/her in the first place.
As Rose Wynters said, “No woman could love a cheater and not pay the price for it.” We think it applies to men as well.
If you have not broken up already, the cutting off will also help you get the clarity you need.
There are many obnoxious ways of getting back to your ex but sometimes not saying anything at all and giving him/her the silent treatment might get you what you want.
Note: If you two feel you still love each other and can look past the cheating phase, then consider giving your relationship another try.
Hit The Gym
Focusing on yourself, as you try to rebuild your life after the awful incident, should be the first and last thing on your mind and there is no better way to focus on yourself then hit the gym.
Working out teaches you the proper way to channel negative feelings. If not tackled properly, these feelings might lead you towards the dark path of self-destruction.
As Khloe Kardashian said, “The best form of revenge is a good body”.
Apart from helping you channel your energy the right way, working out will also help you look good. This will make your ex regret his/her filthy deeds and will give you a new sense of confidence.

Having a cheating partner is the worst feeling in the world, it’s like an anchor constantly pulling you down and the only person who can help you is ‘you’. So, get your life together, focus on yourself, and make the person who did this regret big time.
Nobody could have said it better than Cheryl Hughes:
“The truly scary thing about undiscovered lies is that they have a greater capacity to diminish us than exposed ones. They erode our strength, our self-esteem, our very foundation.”
So, get out there and get your self-esteem back. Take a trip with your best friends. Go to the Bahamas, get that body rocking and live your best life.
Don’t forget to post the pictures on your Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter just so that they can know they are not the anchor that is pulling you down.
Focus On Your Career
A cheating partner would hate nothing more than seeing you enjoy your life and gaining all the success you could never with their negativity around.
Peter Singer said this about cheaters:
“Cheats prosper until there are enough who bear grudges against them to make sure they do not prosper.”
Nobody will enjoy your success more than you and nobody will hate your success more than your cheating partner. It will show them how non-influential they are.
Thus, along with focusing on your body make sure your focus on your career, evolve as a person, and kick the cheater out of your life.

This is how you get revenge on a cheater – by living a better life than you ever did.
