Recovering From Betrayal

with | June 11, 2019

To a betrayed person sometimes people say just forgive and move on. But recovery is a marathon. In addition to forgiveness there is confronting the betrayer, confession by the betrayer, processing what's happened. Establishing a new track record of honesty and faithfulness. Small increases in trust and risk taking. More faithfulness. Repeat, repeat, repeat. On average, it takes over 35,000 steps to run a marathon. Reconciling a relationship is a marathon. It can be done and it is well worth it.
