Trust plays a significant part in our daily life. It makes our everyday life beautiful as it allows us to form relationships with people and to depend on them—for love, for advice, for help, or for anything you could expect from them. Unfortunately, it does not come with a guarantee. It poses a big risk of uncertainty. What we risk includes the loss of the things that we entrust to others, including our peace of mind and self-respect, perhaps, which can be totally shattered by the betrayal of our trust.
Can you see it coming?
It is highly unlikely to get a suspicion before a betrayal. But most of the time we end up facing it by surprise. The saddest thing betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies but comes from your friends and loved ones. This makes betrayal very hard for anyone take. What we fail to realise is that not everyone who smiles at you is your friend.
What can a betrayal lead to? (of course nothing good at all)
1. Despair – One would experience absence of all joy: things seem strange; no affection for the delightful things of life. It could be the typical condition when a person loses his peace of mind completely.
2. Agony – Experiencing extreme and generally prolonged pain or mental suffering.
3. Stress – A feeling of being under too much mental or emotional pressure that one is not able to cope.
4. Anxiety – Feeling very anxious about being with other people and have a hard time talking to them, even though they wish they could.
5. Depression – Unusual Sadness or downswings in mood becoming reactions to life’s struggles, setbacks, and disappointments.
Can trust be restored after a betrayal?
Trust cannot be willed but only can be cultivated. Having said that, the answer is NO! I don’t have to say much in this regard as we would have come across enough and more quotes such as “Trust is like a mirror, once broken cannot be restored” which is so very true.
When we trust people, we are optimistic not only that they are competent to do what we trust them to do, but also that they are committed to doing it. Most of the times, they are competent to do what we trust them to do, but their commitment to do it depends on how much they value us. Of course when someone doesn’t value you enough, then there is definitely no question of a second chance right?.

To Conclude – Kill at First Betrayal
This too shall pass. Let go of the person who gave you a hard time, and focus on what actually makes you feel good. 🙂
