Getting over a Judas is not as simple as 1-2-3 as many people would want you to think, especially if that friend was closer than family itself. So how do you handle a friend's betrayal?
1. Confront the reality
It is always best to confront problems when they are before you rather than pretending or plotting your revenge. Have a conversation with that so-called friend, letting him or her know very clearly that you are aware of the betrayal and let them know exactly how you feel about it.
2. Be true to how you feel
Once you have made that confrontation, it is okay to feel hurt. So cry if you must, vent if you must. Give yourself time and space to process what exactly happened.
3. Forgiveness or no?
It is perfectly acceptable to let go of what took place and stay clear of that individual. It is perfectly OK to love from a distance to protect your heart.
4. Learn your lesson
Sit and really dissect what happened to you. Everything in life happens for a reason, so it is always wise to take the wisdom from every situation and then move on.
5. Let it go
Simply that – let the baggage go!
