DEAR AUNTIE ABENA,
Good afternoon. I have a serious issue that I need your assistance in addressing. I was in a relationship with my boyfriend for 3 years. During our time together as a couple, he established a chemical shop. I was the one taking care of the day-to-day running of the shop for close to a year.
Since he knew nothing about Pharmacy and drugs, all responsibility was solely on my shoulders. I went to the shop as early as 6:00am and closed at 10:00pm. Every month I sent him not less than GHS4,000.00 profit. In my mind and heart, I thought we were building a couple’s business so giving him an honest account was not a problem for me at all.

Auntie Abena, unfortunately, this past December 18th gave me the biggest shock of my entire life. I was scrolling through WhatsApp and to my shock and surprise, I chanced on the wedding invitation of my boyfriend and another woman on someone’s WhatsApp status. Auntie Abena, I don’t remember the last time I had an issue with him.
Even the day before I chanced on that invite, we had a very romantic conversation during which he assured me of his love for me and how deeply he trusted me. To be honest, seeing that WhatsApp status gave me a shock that almost rendered me unconscious. After being motionless for almost an hour, the only thing I did was to take a screenshot of it and send it to him. The comment he made after I sent it was for him to ask where I found it? In fact, I couldn’t answer him.
Auntie Abena, I am in serious depression right now. I can’t eat neither can I sleep. I have worked hard for this guy. Within less than a year, I accumulated not less than 30,000 Cedis from the chemical shop business for him. Unknown to me, whiles I was working, he was planning a wedding with another woman.
The thought that another woman is enjoying from my toil and sweat is killing me. I have totally wasted 3 good years of my life on a man who gave me nothing but betrayal in return. Auntie Abena, I feel so bitter, I don’t know what to do.
