Betrayal and forgiveness, continued...

Forgiveness is extremely empowering especially when you’ve maintained some sort of relationship with this person in your life. Although, I must say this, if you are forgiving again and again and allowing this person to step back into the same place in your life, you must REMEMBER and protect yourself. You have not learned your lesson from this experience if it continues to harm you.

I look at it this way, we are all human and we mess up at times, the first time is a mistake. The second time, is really bullshit and someone else’s dysfunction is getting in the way of your health.

Now, it depends on the situation. If you are talking about immediate family, for example a child with a drug addiction, I will forgive time and time again but I will make sure I am not enabling. The tough love process is really difficult but necessary in this scenario. Although, if you are talking about a cheating spouse who continues in infidelity time and time again, gather your self worth and move on. Remember the experience, understand if you were just caught in the crossfire or part of the dysfunction and empower yourself with this information then find someone who deserves your partnership!

In this scenario, it is especially important to forgive because by doing so you dissolve the toxin within and change it to a loving energy otherwise you will attract another cheater.

Forgiveness from betrayal takes work but the effort is worth it, what are your thoughts about it?
