Trust, Love and Betrayal: Lesson Learned the Hard Way

Have you ever been betrayed. One moment can change lives.

Memory of pain

Trust is important to me. When it is broken, it’s hard to mend it again. I know this for a fact because I have been there. A friend of mine, jpcmc told me that we are only betrayed by people we trust. The closer they are, the more trust you give, the greater the betrayal will be.

Several years back, I was happily married with 1 child. But something went in the way of this perfect family. Lust, human desires, libido, or however you call it got in the way. Suffice to say, it broke a bond that I thought would be strong.

One moment of weakness, one moment of carnal desire, one moment of just being alone changes the world. It can change lives. It can ruin lives.

Time has passed and what was done was done. But the pain and betrayal still lingers in the air. It’s easy to say forgive and forget. But have you really tried doing it? How would you feel if you saw the person you love with some else in bed? How would you feel if some you love threw out a partnership founded on trust and love for one stupid act of weakness?

More than 3 years have passed since the day of betrayal. The pain is real. The tragedy is real. The break up is real. It’s been more than 3 years since my husband walked out because of my infidelity. No amount of apology can

Jpcmc is right. Although carnal desires are natural in animals, it is our will to control ourselves that separates humans.

I write here not to take away the memories of what I’ve done wrong (nor expect to be forgiven). But to share with others that we have a choice. One moment is all it takes to ruin lives.

I'm sure it took a lot of guts to write this one Lexie. I'm really proud that you are trying to turn something bad in your life into something productive and helpful for others. Writing is therapeutic.

Here's to helping others through your misery...that did not come out right. But I'm sure you know what I mean. Good luck my friend.

We all make mistakes but they should not be ones that hurt our partners willfully. I do hope you get your life back to even keel soon - siva
