Do You Know Betrayal?

There is not a day that goes by without someone, somewhere experiencing betrayal. We cannot pick up a newspaper or magazine, turn on the Internet or the TV, or listen to our friends, family, or colleagues without witnessing the aftermath of betrayal's forces. Whether the devastation is financial, relational, physical, emotional, professional or even environmental, none of us is immune to its boundless infectious impact on our lives.

Most of us navigate through the storm, somehow and someway. Most of us are told to forgive, to move on, and to trust again. Most of us are told "to give it time" and it will heal. We do the best we can, but most of us are never quite the same. We feel less than, we have less than, we "are" less than we were before the betrayal.

Can you relate to any of what I am suggesting? Have you known or do you know betrayal? Have you struggled to move through it and past it? Have you been scarred by its acquaintance?

I want you to know that it is my passion and my mission to reach out to others struggling through betrayal issues of all kinds. I have been interested in this topic for over six years and have authored a book -Breaking Through Betrayal: And Recovering the Peace Within (fall 2009). The driving force behind writing this book is to bring release, relief, and renewal from the bonds of betrayal.

The purpose of this blog is to bring encouragement and hope for those of you whose lives have been re-landscaped by betrayal's cyclone. The damage can be arrested and repaired; room can be made for new growth; and we can reclaim our rightful sense of self.
