    Trust and Betrayal

    I was betrayed by my father, mother, husband, sister, pastor, co-worker, and a best friend. But I have to admit that I also betrayed my sister and a friend, and perhaps others I can't think of right now.

    A Shoulder

    He says I'm his shoulder to cry on. But she's his best friend. I wonder what that means. I guess that I'm there to listen to him whine and build him back up, so he can go have fun with her.

    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.

    My girlfriend, ex now, betrayed me. I trusted her when her and I were together. She used to talk about how much she wished she had more friends, and so I helped her to make some friends in her town, since it was a long distance relationship I couldn't physically be there for...

    I Once Thought You Were My Friend...

    But then I realized you weren't. So I let you go, and you told my bro my every secret I had confided in you out of hatred and remorse. Possibly out of regret of not yelling at me instead. You knew it would hurt worse...but I still forgive you.

    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.
