Have you ever been betrayed by someone whom you loved with all your heart? Have you ever been hurt by someone who has promised and sworn never to betray you?
I know, it sucks being betrayed by the one person you were sure you would never hurt yourself. I think that’s the worst feeling ever.
It hurts your soul, it hurts your heart … In a way, it leaves marks that change you completely and forever.
It leaves you with the fear that the same will happen again, that other people will hurt you in the same way.
It shakes your faith in people and makes you think about how you should never again allow anyone to get too close to you.
However, if someone you love the most betrays you, you need to be stronger than that and rise above them. The only way to be successful is to remember the following things.
It’s never your fault
This person will probably try to trick you into thinking how bad it was your mistake, but you have to remember that this is not the case. It cannot be your mistake.
You trusted someone you loved with all your heart and who made you think they would never do anything that could hurt you.
This person broke his own words and it is his mistake that he will repent of later, believe me.
Accept the fact that some people are not what they seem …
There are so many great Oscar-worthy actors among us. A lot of people are not what they seem and we have to be careful all the time.
No matter how much you trust someone, remember that there is always a risk of being hurt by that person. Sometimes you can even spend years with someone and find that they’re not at all what they look like.
… Fortunately, these kinds of people are not supposed to stay in your life.
However, it’s also a sign from God that the types of people who hurt you in this way were never meant to stay in your life forever.
That person was there like a random passerby who was supposed to walk into your life, teach you a lesson, and leave it forever.
Stop looking for revenge, it won’t help you
Right now, you may be conspiring an act of revenge. You think about how it will make you feel better and move on faster.
I hate to break it down for you, but seeking revenge won’t help. It will only make your pain worse, and you will probably regret that you did it later.
You don’t like that person who hurt you. You have a pure heart unlike them and that prevents you from harming them.
Make it a valuable lesson and learn something from it
Look at all of this as a huge lesson. Try to see this person as God’s way of teaching you that you should not trust people easily.
This is His way of showing you that just because you could never hurt someone on purpose, there are other people who will.
It’s just His way of saying that this person is not good for you and making you realize that you have to get them out of your life once and for all.
Don’t lose trust in good people
That doesn’t mean you should never trust anyone else again. It would be a huge mistake because there are still so many good and honorable people.
There are still people who deserve to be trusted completely, kindhearted and kind people who could never hurt another human being. People like you …
Believe in yourself; you are strong, you will heal
You may be thinking right now that you can never get over that. I know it’s so hard to understand.
I know how hard it is to get your heart to understand that a person who broke it was actually the one it was beating for.
But, with time and with faith in yourself, you can move on. You will never be able to heal completely, but that’s okay because it will serve as a reminder for the future.
Pour your heart out to your best friend
You shouldn’t go through it alone. Find a shoulder to cry on because there will certainly be a lot of tears. And, there should be because I know how much it hurts.
Talk to your best friend or someone you trust the most. It will be the best healing therapy. There are still so many people who deserve to be in your life, and they will show you that you are not alone in all of this.
They will never let you go through this on your own.
Forgive in order to forget
This may not sound as easy as it sounds, but it actually is. You can never forget and leave it all behind until you forgive that person.
Remember you are not doing it because of them, you are doing it to get the closure you crave. You do this to close this chapter and finally move on to a new, much better chapter of your life.
