The Anguish of Betrayal

The Anguish of Betrayal

Betrayal is defined as the "violation of a presumptive contract, trust, or confidence that produces moral and psychological conflict within a relationship amongst individuals, between organizations or between individuals and organizations". And, you might remember this quote from "The Usual Suspects": " One cannot be betrayed if one has no people". Is that really the only way to avoid betrayal; Not to engage with people [and/or organizations]?

We all take shots at life. We interact and engage with people and society. More times than not, we walk away with the anguish of another broken presumptive contract. Each time, we become more cynical. Those who are betrayed become the betrayers. Some refuse to betray and turn to God. Many become escapists. Others simply choose loneliness, both to protect themselves from betrayal and to stop themselves from betraying. And of course, there are the "saints" who embrace it in their being. I am no saint.
