Never, but I have unfortunately let some people down over the years. Not so much lately though.

Good luck, Rg

Obviously, you did not read the comment I responded to where the person said she didn't like "people like me" and that she had "gotten rid of them" - and some other choice insults.

How old are you?

On the letdowns: At least you have remorse and have improved the behavior!

Either that, or I'm too old for those types of situations to occur again! Just kidding, I have changed my way of thinking as I grew up.

I returned to this thread after being gone for a few days. The reason that I asked the question was that it seemed hard to believe that someone had "10 to 20" people betray them and not consider that unusual.


Have I been annoyed by someone? Yes. Has someone disappointed me? Yes. Has someone told me a white lie? Yes. Has someone exaggerated the benefit of something to me? Yes.

But, has anyone betrayed me? Nope, not once in 67 years.

Wow. That is truly remarkable!!! Unbelievable, actually. I would love to know more about your life - see a picture of you, understand HOW this could be possible.

The betrayals I have had have been parents, lovers, husbands, friends, children, and business acquaintances!

I believe that each person has different lessons in life, so apparently I was "supposed" to go through this to learn to be stronger or something.

It's amazing to me that some live truly charmed lives. Hard to imagine. Must be nice.

What does it matter what happened to anyone else, when, or why? The real question is, how *you* cope, what *you* have done or will do in your own life to deal with whatever issues occur.

Of course. I was just curious.

I don't think it's a case of some having "truly charmed lives". I think that other people may define a betrayal differently than you do. That might be attributable to the nature of the incident, or the severity of the action, whatever. However, that doesn't mean that these other people have lived lives of perfect ease and lack of conflict, stress, or pain. They may have just interpreted those incidents and actions that were taken against them in a different way than you do, and not as "betrayals". The bottom line that I get from your post is that you are still incredibly bitter about the betrayals you have received, or perceived, in your life and that it is negatively impacting your current interactions with others.
