In the last episode, I shared a very personal and candid story about my most difficult time in marriage and business. The feedback was so overwhelming that I decided to revisit the topic today — focusing on what it takes to recover from betrayal. And, more specifically, restoring trust when it doesn’t seem possible.
- When betrayal is most shocking
- The first thing I’ve come to realize about those who have betrayed me
- The deepest pain that comes from feeling betrayed (for me)
- Why you should be slower in giving your trust
- The reason why betrayal tends to hit me so hard
- What I have come to forgive myself for
- The value in trying to understand the past of someone who has betrayed you
- How I worked to understand Bret and his history (after betrayal)
- What the betrayer must have for your relationship to be salvaged
- What you need to do if you betrayed someone and want to restore the relationship
- Why physical abuse is not betrayal
- The unrealistic demands I had on Bret after the betrayal
- Why you diminish a relationship by continually bringing up the past
- Why there is nothing better than using a therapist to heal from betrayal
