my boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship. we been together for a year and 1 /2 he told me he cheated on me I was so hurt that I cheated on him just so he would know how I felt. but after I did it I thought that I might just be losing the love of my life if I tell him the truth. he's the type of person that wouldn't be able to handle me cheating. and I no that so rather than throw our relationship away I've keep it a secret. am I being selfish?

You are not being selfish. You are actually doing the harder thing than telling him. Telling him would be about relieving your guilt and/or hurting him. By not telling him you are having to live with your guilt all alone and that is not easy.
I think you have learned a valuable lesson here, that two wrongs don't make a right. What he did was not cool at all but cheating on him only made things worse, much worse. I would leave this in the past and move on.1
