Have You Ever Been Betrayed?

Have You Ever Been Betrayed?

Stranger nebba walk thru de back door”

Only someone close to you can hurt you as they know your secrets.

If I have a secret I would tell the people closest to me. That’s because I trust them. I wouldn’t tell it to someone I didn’t know. So it’s quite unlikely that a stranger would betray me. For a start I wouldn’t have any emotional ties with a stranger like I would to a family member or a close friend.

Many years ago I had a relationship with a tarnished young man. He wasn’t right for me but when you’re young, you think you know it all. He wasn’t the type of guy I could bring home and introduce to my parents. He was the local bad guy. I liked him anyway.

I decided it was best to keep our relationship a secret. The only person I told about him was my best friend. I opened my heart to her. She promised that my secret would be her secret as well.

We went out for six months. The relationship wasn’t going anywhere. It naturally just came to an end.

A year after that relationship ended I met someone else. I fell in love with him. We were happy together. I decided not to tell him about my ex boyfriend. I wasn’t proud of my past.

My new boyfriend was tall, dark and handsome. He was intelligent and had a good job. He was my ideal man. No man had ever loved me like he did.

My best friend seemed pleased that I had found someone who made me happy. She was single. She told me she would love to meet a man like my one.

One night my sister and I went to the cinema. I left my man alone at home. My sister gave me a lift home after the film ended. I opened the door and walked over to my boyfriend to give him a hug. Instead of hugging me back he sat there staring at the TV screen. He had never acted so cold towards me. I was confused. It took a lot of sweet-talking before he told me what was bothering him.

By the time he’d finished speaking I was really angry. Not only was I angry, I was also hurt.

My best friend had betrayed me. While I was out she went to see him. She told him my secret. Our secret! I didn’t understand or knew why she did it. 

It nearly ruined the relationship with my boyfriend. He lost trust in me. When we first met I told him that I didn’t have any secrets. I also told him that I would never hide anything from him.

He felt that I had betrayed him. My best friend had also betrayed me.

Be careful who you tell your secrets to. Better still, don’t keep secrets! Hidden things always seem to get exposed sooner or later.

  1. They say two is company and three is crowd, similarly for a secret when a single person knows it, is private and when two knows it is bound to become public

  3. Unfortunately we’ve all been betrayed at one time or another June. Whether it was something you told someone in confidence or something you trusted did to you that was just so very very wrong.

    I’ve been there and that’s why I’m extremely careful with who I trust. They definitely have to earn it, it’s not a given with me.

    Did that end your friendship with her? It would have with me.

    Thanks for sharing your story and hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    • It’s a real shame when you can’t even trust those classed as ‘best friends’ isn’t it? But it’s a painful part of life! Ands unfortunately trust is not something you can easily give either.

      I didn’t end the friendship but it changed our relationship. It didn’t take long for the friendship to fizzle out after that. It was a nasty experience.

      Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend. 🙂
