0 THE BITTER TASTE OF BETRAYAL ALSO HAS A SWEET AFTER TASTE

Betrayal of any kind leaves a bitter taste in your mouth, your heart and your spirit. It's sting last long and it's venom colors how you see the world, how you view others and how you trust. The moment you come into knowing, it is the worst feeling, you are hurt deeply, worst it causes you to question your own choices and judgment. These feelings can undermine your belief in yourself and erode your confidence if you let it.

UNDERSTANDING THE BETRAYOR 
What you must understand about the person(s) that betray you is, that is how they function, their thoughts and actions are a function of their "normal." It goes like this: 

Their calculated choice to not tell the truth about something they saw/witnessed and heard is about their self-preservation. They do not care about helping you or standing up for truth for the sake of truth by doing what is right. They care about protecting their self and garnering any opportunity to fly under the radar and be precieve as something other than they are in order come out the Victor. You are not a factor in that reasoning.

You cannot reason with the unreasonable that is another's ethos and philosophy because excuses and unreasonableness is how they govern their lives. There is nothing you can say or do to get them to be accountable for using you as a stepping stone for what they deem an opportunity for betterment.

TASTING THE SWEET AFTER TASTE OF BETRAYAL
All is not lost when you have been betrayed. Once you get over the shock and the hurt there is a sweet after taste laced in the lessons of that experience. You may question the merit of my philosophical way of seeing betrayal however if you really think about it you will see my point. After all, if Judas could betray Jesus Christ the Almighty who are you a mere human? I say use it to make you stronger and wiser. 

Here are some of the benefits: 
  • You are less burdened because you no longer in the company of some who is untrustworthy.
  • You learn not to invest in others that are not invested in you.
  • You learn to truly understand your worth and your value.
  • You become smarter about choosing whom you align yourself with.
  • You are now better equipped at SEEing and hearing what is left unsaid.
  • You learn to sharpen your discernment.
