About Me: I'm Shaina, I'm a life coach and I love taking a vision (big or small) and making it a reality. My mission is to educate young people on everyday life skills that we aren't taught in school, but are crucial in leading happy, successful lives.
Hey guys, Happy Wednesday. It’s Shaina, bringing you another video on the channel where you learn, laugh and get inspired all at the same time.
Today, we’re talking about betrayal, a heavier topic, but an important one to know how to deal with. Because knives in your back, that’s pretty painful.
Maybe you were lied to by your significant other, maybe you put your trust into a “good” friend who broke that trust…whatever the situation, we want to stop that self-suffering.
The betrayer may or may not be remorseful, but that’s not your concern. Your concern is YOU and healing from it.
So let’s jump in and start pulling those knives out- one by one.
1. Let yourself FEEL. Feel through the emotions- whether it be anger, sadness, disappointment, it’s the first step to getting through the betrayal. Most likely it’ll be a rollercoaster of emotions, and that’s OK, just let go and feel.
2. Don’t fire back. When we’re betrayed, our first instinct is to attack.
I’m going to scream at you and then I’m going to get revenge and I’m going to make sure that you suffer forever and ever and ever.
It’s not your job to teach them a lesson. Stay in your business…for the sake of your sanity and so that you don’t end up in jail.
3. What needs to be done to protect yourself and move forward in a more positive way. Do boundaries need to be set? Ya know take a good hard look at the situation and decide what action needs to be taken from a practical standpoint, especially if say money or your safety was involved.
4. What’s the lesson? It’s through these really difficult times in life that we grow. It’s about saying, “OK, this happened, it sucks that it happened, but what did I learn from this that I will never fall victim to again?”
For example, years and years ago, my ex-boyfriend was cheating on me with everybody and their cat. And it was by far the worst betrayal I had ever experienced.
However, I not only owned up to my own role in that betrayal and how I ignored major red flags and put up with way more than I should have or what I deserved, but I also took that experience and learned from it.
I knew that I never wanted to be that naïve girl again. And from that day forward, I decided what I deserved and what I didn’t in a relationship and went on to have much healthier relationships there after.
What doesn’t kill you really does make you stronger.
6. Come from a place of love + understanding. The person that’s betrayed you is hurting some way somehow. Their behavior was a result of what’s going on in their mind. It has nothing to do with you, but everything to do with them. So if their actions weren’t kind, maybe even cruel, than you can be sure that there’s a lot of suffering up there.
And once you can do that, you can eventually…
7. Forgive. You don’t have to agree with what they did or condone it, but just try to look at it through a different lens of, “OH, OK, they’re not well. They’re not at a place of peace.”
You can then let go and release them to a higher power to do it’s a thing.
Also, forgive yourself. Don’t let your inner critic convince you that you were a fool or an idiot for falling pray to them, again it was just another life lesson being thrown your way.
And lastly, once you’ve healed completely,
8. Open your heart. Don’t let this experience close you off to the world and let other people in.
