Liars and betrayers are common in this world. It's a nasty thing to do by ordinary people. Anyone could do it. Even I can do it. But the only thing that divides us is the choice of not doing it.
I will not say that I haven't done it. But at least I have tried not to do it intentionally.
Lying is a common thing...We may lie about little things just to avoid problems. We sometimes say white lies. We sometimes say the big lies just to save our reputation. But one thing common about lies, are the fact that it brings bigger troubles when the truth comes out.
They hurt us badly. Sometimes to the point that we cannot forgive that person for hurting us. Maybe its not the fact that they lied to us. The lies can be so petty, but the fact that such person is so close to us, so dear, that we treated them as our sibling, have hurt us in a way that we regret being close with them. We shared a lot of secrets with them because we trusted them that they will not divulge such information. We chose them carefully. Yet they did what we feared.
Once the damage had been done, its hard to get over it. The healing process will take time. The person cannot trust automatically, with such person or anyone. Sometimes, such experience leaves another jaded that it cannot be healed. Sometimes, it hurt us so badly that he is left with no choice but to change. Change his perspective in life, his principles, his manners, his attitude and the way he looks at others.
But the hurt can be healed. It will take time. But it will definitely come if we want to. Sometimes all it takes is a simple sorry from the person who have hurt us. All it takes is time to pass by to naturally heal all the wounds.
