Charmed? You think never having been been betrayed means one has led a "charmed" life??? Too funny.

Some folks are not as fragile or quick to blame as others or might be better at judging people and risk.

Pretty much all of us have been betrayed or screwed over by someone at some point in our lives.

But few will admit they may have made someone else feel betrayed... I'll bet no one on this thread will admit to being a bad driver either!

Would you knowingly "betray" someone if they were a danger to themselves or to others? What if you were convinced that they were having a delusional episode that posed a risk? What if you were told something in confidence that was clearly evidence of a mental health issue? Asking for a friend...

Here is more of a discussion of examples of betrayal:

Well- he may want an example because "betrayed" is a pretty strong word. Most people haven't been betrayed 10-20 times to the true definition of the word.

Jeeze.

Yes. IMHO, to seek medical help for someone in crisis is being a loving, caring friend and is not a betrayal.

For example, if someone confided to you that they were actively planning a school massacre or workplace shooting or to kill their girl friend or planned to commit suicide, yes, you should do what is appropriate for that situation (tell their family members, call 911, notify the police or their doctor, etc.)

Have I had someone to something that negatively impacted me? Yes. A non-insured driver ran into me. Completely her fault, too. Is that a "betrayal"?? Hardly. Have had a-hole men grab me - I punched one of them, too. Are those "betrayals"?? No.

Being betrayed does not mean one has never had a bad experience.

I've never had my trust in someone, violated. I had my car broken into in NYC and a very expensive camera stolen. Was that a betrayal? Certainly not.

Perhaps I am less trusting than some others? I dunno. I don't think so but maybe that is it.
