It all started with a crumpled piece of paper. From there the roller-coaster began causing the most turbulent and tumultuous chapter of my life. I had to learn how to survive! When a marriage is affected by betrayal, the trust is brutally savaged, causing a crushing effect on the very backbone of the relationship. Betrayal in a marriage is like rejection on steroids. Many times the trust is never restored. Other times the couple is able to rise above the devastation and take the correct steps to mend the broken, fractured trust. In either case, one can heal; better yet, completely—yes, unequivocally—heal! Healing does not have to depend on you and the other person, but it does have to depend on you and God. If you are a victim of betrayal, know that healing mechanisms are common to all types of betrayals. Hope can be renewed and take the place of despair. Desiring revenge can be replaced by a renewed freedom. A new peace and restoration can be brought to your soul. Step off the path leading to a dead end, and embrace the highway to healing. Love like you’ve never been betrayed.
