Default Ever been betrayed by someone close to you?

Have you ever severed ties with a good friend/family member over an act of betrayal? Did you forgive them? If so, how is your relationship now?

No forgiveness in me. I do not take prisoners.

I have been betrayed on more than one occasion. I've forgiven them, the poor miserable, wretched excuses for human beings that they are. My relationship with these people will never be the same. I do not seek them out. Looking at my watch and tapping my foot waiting for them to get leprosy or something.

Yes, I have been betrayed by people close to me. One I have not spoken to in almost 5 years and the others I have forgiven.

I essentially severed ties with my childhood best friend. I didn't cut her off due to any one incident, but it was a bunch of things that made me feel betrayed enough to just let the relationship die. By her actions, it seems like she was not interested much in being close anymore anyway. She made a comment once that maybe when we were older we'd become good friends again, but for me it is not an option. I guess we grew apart, but when you make it a clear choice then it feels more like a severing.

My pet cat Felishio, we were really close and he cheated on me with my neighbor. I guess he feed him better quality cat food than me.

Felishio? LOL!

Did any of these betrayals involve significant others or money?

Yes, with my sister, who kicked me when I was down during my divorce. I guess I haven't forgiven her, but she never apologized or maybe I would have. Our relationship now is nonexistent. We live in different states and one of the last few times I was up there she went off on me ranting and raving and I sure didn't need that.
