Betrayal is such a tricky thing. The definition is seemingly straightforward; yet the experience of betrayal is often murky and emotional. For me, I often feel betrayed, get angry, and then don’t stop right away to go back to figure out what it was that upset me so much. I’m not good at identifying a betrayal in the moment. Is anyone really that good at it?

No betrayal is easy to handle, despite what some people say, and I can’t tell whether a known or expected betrayal is worse or better than a surprise.
