I Was Betrayed By People I Thought I Could Trust

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,715 People

    I thought he was my best friend

    and he trusts me as much as I trust him. Turns out I was wrong and feeling betrayed is a whole new zone. It's anger first before any other feeling. Angry that I didn't see it coming at all and also because of all the person who could have hurt me, it was my best friend.

    Been There, Done That

    If I had a penny for each and every time I was backstabbed or screwed over by someone who was supposed to be close or special to me,  I would be richer than Donald Trump by now.

    The telling of the true self is often a hard

    thing to do, especially when we doubt who will and will not support who we are, and who we hope to be. To be betrayed by your own family because of the one you love, however, should be a problem that doesn't exist. Love is love, and any family, no matter their beliefs or views...

    My friends leave me out

    and speak about me. This generation is horrid, and nobody is kind enough to just try to be friends with other girls; they need to seriously a get off their high horse

    and know you personally don't really know who you are.

    My mother. My own bloody mother,

    In December of 2014, I transferred schools.

    One of my good guy friends at my old school emailed me, accused me of calling people at my old school "dorks". I was bullied, hurt, and mentally and physically scared. I never said those things and the first time I read through it, I was hurt. The second time I read through it...

    It kills me inside the most

    when people say that they will always be there for me, but they leave in the end. ): It hurts less if the guy or girl never said that. Because if you say so, you must mean it.

    I am selfless especially with friends

    who knows their limits yet sometimes helping people without hesitation can hurt you along the way people grabs every opportunity they can get without thinking that they have stepped on someone already

    This has happened to me all my life,

    the earliest when my so called friends said I should have 'lonely' recesses. Where they would follow me as I wandered the school yard alone. Anyone I have ever gotten close to has eventually betrayed me, the worst was when they stole my cat. I will never forget, and it makes it...

    Really, I let them walk all over me

    for way too long. It took me two years to realize I didn't want to deal with toxic relationships any longer. It has been a year since I decided to stop putting them first and it still hurts.

    When I was young and naive I kept a diary

    and my "best friend",her mom,my boyfriend, their boyfriends and 20 other people who were friends of theirs went through my purse and read it while I was asleep! I learned not to ever trust anyone after that.
