I respect about your opinion that you would not forgive those who have betrayed you. I know that forgiving is a formidable task, but it can hasten the healing process of wound that had been created. Thanks.

I would be angry with him at first because he betrayed me and trust that I bestowed to him.Then as friends I will still forgive him and still consider him as a friend.I know that it is very hard to find a true friends nowadays.

Yes, that is a normal human reaction to get mad at the person who has betrayed you. But, I admired that you would still forgive to those who have betrayed you. In this world, forgiveness is a luxury rather than a necessity.

Friends have betrayed me on more than one occasion. I guess that it depends on the extent of the betrayal. First, let me say that although the temptation for revenge may be there, revenge is not the answer. Revenge may feel good at the time, but will only bring you down to their level. You should always try to be the bigger person and try to seek revenge. I always try to forgive betrayals, and eventually I will. The latest betrayal is still fresh so it will take some time to forgive, but forgiveness will undoubtedly come for me eventually. Forgiveness is not something that can be rushed though, nor can it be forced. Even those who have been forgiven though are unlikely to ever regain my complete trust again though. Some will remain as friends, or regain my friendship once lost. Others I will never be able to befriend again. As I said, this depends on the nature of the betrayal. In addition, even though I have forgiven a friend, I will never forget what this friend has done to me. Once a friend has betrayed me, I may try to forget the wrong that has been done, and the hurt that was caused by it, but it will still be there.
