I don’t know what should I write in today’s world prompt ‘Betrayed’. I don’t think I have betrayed someone, or someone betrayed me (at least I feel this way, people around may have different thoughts). It’s just we took our decisions whenever there were some obligations were involved.
Though I have heard and read many stories on betrayal like a boyfriend or husband betrayed the girlfriend, or vice-versa. A man, a father of two teenage girls left their mother for a younger girlfriend of his, a woman a mother left husband and kids for some other man in her life and so on. It is a very sensitive topic and a sensitive feeling for every individual, having a different state of mind at the moment.
We enter or create a relationship to fulfill our needs to have some kind of satisfaction or security. On the other hand, the other person has also entered into the relationship for his/her needs and satisfaction and security. When we feel that we have a great value in other person’s life we miss that they are also adding some great value to our life. And the start of expectation, and ‘end of love’, cause a feeling of betrayal.
The source of feeling ‘betrayed‘ is when we expect a return, in our relationships. Love, love is a feeling we get when we are with somebody-someone special. It should not be confused with physical attraction or needs, that may change over time. We should nurture love with our affection, and kind gesture, but love, itself, is not physical and it doesn’t look for returns. It’s a feeling, without any obligations. The deal doesn’t exist in love!
Anyways we have to leave people behind, and people leave us behind. And we live our own lives, without any oxygen cylinder on our back. It is one life don’t betray yourself and live it completely. Our happiness should not be a burden for others, be happy for your own life!
