20. No, you don't have to be happy for her

I mean, it would be nice if you were but being bitter is an entirely understandable and entirely human reaction. Most of us aren't going to judge you for that.

But we're not her. While I sympathize with your hurt because splitting up with someone is the worst, we're not her. Her flaws don't reflect on us. You feel hurt because she betrayed you and, Lord knows, I can understand that, but you're blaming the wrong thing. She could have left you for a guy or another woman or an especially attractive goat, you'd still be feeling hurt and betrayed and that's normal (and if you want to discuss that privately, feel free to message me). All we're asking is to not judge us by her.

I forget who it was but someone once described bisexuality as the opportunity to learn that both genders are capable of being duplicitous assholes.
