Friendship and Betrayal for almost 5 years

March 3, 2010 7:58am CST
I have a friend which is 2 years older than me. I treat him as my older brother because I don't have one. We promised not to lie with each other. I kept my promise but he didn't kept his promised. He lied to me that he enjoyed our five years friendships relationships. Until I found out that it was a PURE LIE. He back stabbed me in front of others. I found out that he never really like me as a friend. He just like the idea of having friends with the Politician daughter. I hate his actions and intentions. I hate being betrayed by someone I treasured for years. And I hate the thing called friendship which mean BETRAYAL.

That's why I hate politics. Not intentionally to your father or to your friend, and not to offend them, the main motivation of politics is money and power. Thus, people who seek for it do things even if it means they have to step on other's head just to vivify their way on top. I feel sorry for you as a victim of political mischief. But, if i were on your part, it's hard to reconsider and reconcile. Though, I would be open to forgiveness.

Definitely you're right. He used me in his own personal intentions. I can easily forgive but in this case, I pitty myself for being a victim in his selfishness misdeed.

oh well, he's not an effective traitor at all. not even a good leader if he's aspiring for one coz he doesn't know how to keep his mouth shut to everyone. i guess it would be different if he said that in your presence coz that may be a joke. then again, good riddance it only lasted for 5 years. it could have gotten worst. hope your dad and mom knows. sometimes, it's an advantage that not all people know your status because there will allways be people like your professor existing everywhere, mixing with the crowd. you just have to filter them. take care! :)

Hi, turtle_ring27. I am very sorry about how your friend has betrayed you. He was so wrong to do you this way. You were good to him and he did not appreciate you for the least bit! That is how some people will do you, they just pretend to be your friend just so they can make their way into something that is not a genuine friendship. Don't worry about him. Sooner or later, Karma will come to bite him in his rear end, and he will be done the same way that he has done you. He wasted your time for many years lying to you and that was very trifling. You will make it through.. Stay strong. Keep your head up!

Thank you. He's not worth my trust anymore. He still didnt know that I know his intentions. he keep pretending. He's just a waste of time.

That is terrible, turtlering. Politics can make people go mad; they'll go great lengths to get involved, even when it means betraying a friend. Five years is a long time to have treasured that friendship. You can stay away from him and not have that 'friendship' again but be forgiving. Best of luck.

That's really sad to know. Some people are such hypocrites. They can be one person in front of you and be the other in front of others. Just try to get over it... :)

im sorry to hear that its not really easy to have someone pretending they are good enough to be a friend but turned out that they are just using you at all. it happened ot me before while im still studying those friends i though that are good to be true but it ruined during our exam when they borrowed my test paper and did not just copy my answer but he also erased my name and change it to his name while he put my name into his test paper name. its our final exam already but our professor of course was shocked why ive got the lower grade and not even a passing grade. and so i talk to my professor and asked her to give me another exam and i assure her that i can pass it even if its an on the spot exam coz i still recall what i studied. but she just excused me thinking that the one with the erased name was mine. and of course i already know who it was and it was the end of our friendship. but in your case since its for 5 years, thats very difficult but learned to accept the fact as his not worthy for any of your time nor tears.

Im sorry that you been treat in this way. Did he actually tell you this himself? be careful if you heard it from other people. Is there any chance that he maybe said this to hurt you because he likes you? By that I mean that he might like you but be worried you do not like him so said awful things in order to push you away?

I'm sorry to hear what has happened. Do you still have communication with that person? At times, true friends are really hard to find and you have to undergo series of ups and downs with them so that you will be able to tell who is deserving to be called and considered as a "true friend". Yes 5 years is really a long long time but what can you do? You got hurt and you just have to learn through it. Just don't feel bitter about what happened. Don't make this experience as a revenge neither as a hindrance on making friends. On the other hand, I will not blame you if it will be harder for you to trust a friend again just like the way you trusted your friend.

The betrayal is a phenomenon that makes you grow more and more strong in your life so that someday you'll be so humble that you 'll be able to forgive absolutely any form of misdeeds happens to you.Don't get afraid of being betrayed.Do you remember Judas who betrayed JESUS?There is always a balance in this world.Nobody escapes out of the consequences of what he's done for sure.And it'll also be very unfair to take revenge.Forgive him for he has done.I'm sure someday he'll come to you to admit that he's done wrong to you.Trust me.

Being betrayed by the person you trust the most is very hard to accept. After realizing that everything you believed were lies everything you felt for this person suddenly turns upside down. I can relate to how you feel right now cause I was also betrayed by my ex best friend who also happens to be ex my girlfriend. I shared a lot of things with her that I haven't shared to anyone and I trusted her with out any second thoughts but it was only when we broke up that I found out that she has been lying to me ever since we got together. After we broke up I found out who my true friends were and I found out which of my friends I could trust and which of them would stick with me through thick and thin. Don't be too hard on yourself. Just remember its not your lose. He was the one who lost a good friend in you.

I have a friend who's dad was a politician, and now is a politician himself. I hated politics and still hate it, seeing even now how the system works through my friend but I believe it just can't be helped. We were friends before he got there so it didn't matter to me. We usually kid him about his being a politician, and sometimes we let out truly hurtful words but then it was all for fun even for him. I think that betrayal among and/or between friends is really one of the cruelest thing to experience because in my case, I can truly say that I have spent around 80% to 90% of my life with them and I pity you for being betrayed and used for politics sake. It's a cruel game in politics I guess. There are better friends out there, so I guess it's a lesson to learn though, that we should truly know our friends.
