How do you move past betrayal?

- Avoid payback. When someone hits you, it may be a natural reaction to hit back. Remember the maxim, “Hurt people…hurt other people.” Plotting revenge on how you will betray someone the way they betrayed you, only hurts you. Payback requires other negative emotions, which blocks peace and happiness.

- Forgive the wrongdoer in your heart. In order to make room for peace, you have to get rid of resentment.
You are powerful and can overcome betrayal. The choice belongs to you. Remember, the experience of betrayal will always offer a lesson. Once you discover the lesson, you’ll realize you are more AMAZING than ever as you are stronger and wiser
