Betrayal equals losing your trust and having your heart broken. We all know that being betrayed is one of the most debilitating thing that could ever happen to anyone, especially if it is done by someone dear to us, be it a friend or a loved-one. When you are betrayed, all the trust you had for that person is gone, you become less confident, afraid, constantly asking yourself what you’ve done wrong to deserve such an awful thing. Being miserable is a part of it and trusting again becomes very hard. The only thing that’s left to do is to totally cut that person out of your life, move on and make sure that the next person whom you’ll put your trust into will never do the same.

Listed below are quotes about betrayal that might help if you are in the same situation.
