Have you ever felt betrayed? When I hear someone say, "I was betrayed," I immediately think that person was stabbed in the back or lied to by someone they trusted. As I flash on my own past, I am reminded of my old college boyfriend who went out on me. That betrayal cut like a knife. Other memories surface, too, of old hurts by friends, a parent, a sibling or a spouse. Even in my past career in television, I felt betrayed at times.
As I've traveled this spiritual journey I'm on, I have a new sense of what real betrayal is and when it hurts most.
