Ah, bitter betrayal, overcame it. Contrary to what most people say, it is possible to get over stuff completely, you just have memories that are there, whether they effect you is something that you lose with time. I got over it just by telling myself my ex wasnt worth it, and in reality, when I look back, she wasnt. As much as i learned about relationships from her, it was a waste of time. I realized that and just continued with my llife, meet new people everyday, and its been smooth sailing since a 1-2 months after i broke up with her.

Life is too short to hold onto shitty situations, and people. One thing I've learned is time eats everything. Some backstabbings can really hurt in the moment but important thing is to focus on you, learn from the experience and time will do the rest. You'll remember but mostly just what it taught you. People come and go, times change its a inevitable part of life.

It's interesting to note that most of the examples listed here refer to significant others and not betrayals in business or the like.
That said, my ex cheated on me with my best friend and it destroyed our relationships and that of several of my "friends." I had to make the decision to excise these tumors from my life and I see now that I'm much better off for it, though at the time, it nearly ended me. I've since made new friends and have mostly gotten over the betrayal, though I hate that I'm much more cynical and more mistrusting as a result.

Ah, those halcyon days of youth before I new true evil.

I have been through betrayals before, and they still hurt like crazy seeing that they things that are quite difficult to shake off. Most of what I see as betrayals are just miscalculations on their part, but there are some where I was expecting one thing based on what was said, but something bad ended up being the case as I was intentionally misled. It's quite easy to mistake a miscalculation as being a betrayal as I just didn't realize that there was more to those things and that good intentions were at the basis of it.

The scar is still there and runs deep. I deal every day.
