I’ve recently had an experience where I’ve been betrayed by someone who I considered a close friend.
The details aren’t that important but I will discuss them briefly. We created a business together, it ended, and in our conversations as we ended were mutually considerate, fair, and warm. We finished a tough situation with good intentions.
Then, she stopped communicating.
Then, she hired a lawyer.
Now, things are litigious.
And I felt deeply, deeply betrayed.
More betrayed than I’ve felt in a long time. It hurts. The reality is that I will end up fine in the end. But, dealing with the betrayal has taught me some very important lessons.
On this week’s Tuff Love, we go into it and discuss how do you deal with the powerful and hurtful sensation of betrayal.
