Betrayal and hurt

I know that betrayal is not something we ever want to even think about, no less have to experience in our lives. But it does happen, and it leaves a devastating aftermath. Sadly, betrayal is a powerful feeling that results from another person(s) violating you on an emotional, physical or sexual level. It can come out of nowhere and take a longstanding marriage down to its knees. When betrayal occurs in a marital relationship, all the trust that existed for years is destroyed, and much time and patience is needed to restore the trust. Many people never restore the trust and only project it onto future relationships. Children of parents who have betrayed one another, tend to betray their spouses or be betrayed by their spouses.  The legacy of mistrust and betrayal continues.

Each one of us must learn to live with integrity, to honor our commitments, to heal our emotions, to take responsibility for ourselves and to walk the path of truth and honesty. Integrity is doing what is right regardless of  how difficult or inconvenient it is. Spirit rewards integrity.
