The crazy thing about being betrayed is, you don't just lose trust in people,
you begin to doubt whether or not you can trust yourself, your judgment,
and your emotions. You get bit by a snake and wonder how you didn't see
it coming, so you start blaming love for having you blind. You start
resenting your heart because it forced you to feel. You start shutting down
more and more each day until even the best parts of you become bitter.
And you begin to wonder...
"Why lie to me When I was real With you?"
"Why play games with me when I was true to you?"
"Why betray me when I was nothing but loyal to you?"
You ask and you ask but none of the answers ever make sense. Until it
finally clicks. You realize that just because you treat people right, doesn't
mean they/ II do right by you. You realize that just because you're truthful
doesn't mean you won't get lied to. You watch your friends jump from
relationship to relationship, losing their souls trying to force love. You see
people you thought you knew acting out of character just so strangers
find them impressive. SO then you Smarten up and you learn not to let
selfish people surprise you. You learn not to let users upset you. You learn
how to let the liars go and fakers fail. And you stop, and you thank God
for growth. The kind of growth that helps you accept and see things
clearly... Some people make themselves easy to cut off, no need to get
angry at their actions, just thank them for saving you time.
