The thrust of the betrayers blade has sunk deep into your back. The attack came from someone you trusted. This is what makes the wound so painful.
You need to know this betrayal came from a place of brokenness in your betrayer. It wasn’t personal. They do not know this place of deep personal brokenness even exists.
The blade of betrayal cannot reach your heart if you choose to forgive your attacker. Forgiveness won’t make the pain go away and won’t erase its memory, but it will cause the blade to miss your heart. This will not easy, but must be done if you are going to survive this attack.
