We were together 4 years and one day he decides to cheat. I am so close with his family and he just wants me out of the picture so he ignores me and gossips about me to people. How can I show him that I'm better off without him and also how do I explain to him that I want to be friends with him and his family regardless.

I have sort of been in the same position with a cheating ex, but he didn't really gossip about me. I decided to just be extra nice to him after, act really understanding and friendly, even if I had to fake it. This made my ex feel really guilty for what he did and he ended up apologising to me after, and nearly crying because of how much he'd hurt me especially since I was so nice to him still. The best way is to make him realize his own mistakes by making him see what he did to such a nice girl and regretting that he ever lost you, not playing him at his own game and trying to force him to feel bad. It works, trust me. What is someone going to say to someone who is being nothing but nice to them? He is just going to look weird if he continuously bitches about you when your treating him with respect. Me and my ex actually became good friends after the whole thing happened, I know he learnt his lesson and felt bad for hurting me, so it was easy to move on from it and become good friends. So you should try it.0
