When Was the Last Time You Experienced Betrayal?

In the past few weeks I’ve experienced what I can only identify as a betrayal. It’s made me sick, it’s made me feel lonely and it’s thrown off my self-esteem and equilibrium. You know the feeling.jilbert-ebrahimi-33575-unsplash

I hesitate to use the word betrayal because it sounds so over dramatic to me, but the more I think about it, the more I realize that there’s no other way to see it.

We all experience betrayal in one way or another over the course of our lifetimes. It’s a part of life and learning through living but it is never an easy thing to experience.

I’ve made my feelings known to the parties involved but you also cannot force someone to see your point of view or even to hear you.

So, here’s my point. My job on this planet has nothing to do with anyone else or what anyone else is doing or has done.

IntegrityMy job is to be the best person I can be and to make sure that I don’t treat anyone the way I have been treated. Included in this description is making sure that I don’t remain angry, take it out on anyone else or carry it over into any new endeavors. I didn’t say it was easy, did I? What do you consider your job to be?

Anyway, these ideas are part of what inspired me to create the All The Pardons app (allthepardons.com, iTunes store & Google play store).

Who do you expect yourself to be?
