Have you ever been betrayed by someone you assumed was a close friend or confidant?
An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind. In fact, an evil friend can also wound your heart and take away your ability to trust or befriend others. When someone close to you betrays your trust, it can feel like the end of the world.
Myself, I can’t tell if anyone had betrayed me because I don’t trust any in the first place.
Have you ever been betrayed by a close friend? How did you confront the betrayal, and how did you manage the difficult emotions often associated with this type of experience?
