Betrayal is one of the most painful experiences a woman can go through. Trusting someone only to have them turn their back on you leaves lasting scars.
This is especially true for women who were treated badly by a man, trusted someone new, and went through it again.
Lowering your guard and letting a new man in is not easy, but it is a very rewarding feeling when you can do it.
At the same time, it is frightening.
Women Want To Be Open
Most women want to whole-heartedly throw themselves into a relationship and be rewarded for their trust with love.
They want to give the men in their hearts the benefit of the doubt. Sadly, when a man turns around and betrays that trust, these women are left broken.
Now, wonderful and caring women are forced to hide their feelings for fear of rejection and pain.
When you've trusted someone with your whole being and they didn't live up to your hopes, the pain is intense.
That is why you should be careful who you hurt - not all women are replaceable.
One day, you might realize that the woman you hurt so badly was actually one of a kind.
Moving On Is Hard
Once you've given your heart to someone and they crushed it, it is very hard to pick up the pieces and move on.
Accepting that just because you loved entirely doesn't mean you'll be loved in return is one of the hardest things in the world.
But it is possible to heal and become strong once again - this takes time though.
One day, you will look back and be grateful for the lessons you learned after being inflicted with this pain.
You Are Stronger Than You Think
You'll never again accept being treated poorly. You will never again believe a man who says he loves you but doesn't show it.
No one will fool you into opening up when it's not worth it again.
After surviving such betrayal, you will see your own value. There is no way that you'll let a man decide what you're worth.
If you've been hurt in this way, forgive yourself because it's not your fault. The fault lies with the person who was too blind to see what they really had.
Protect yourself better in the future but don't put up impenetrable walls. You will find someone who will help break down your barriers again.
This time, you'll know if you can trust him or not.
As painful as being rejected and betrayed can be, it will help you learn how to see when someone is worth your trust.
Enjoy being on your own for a while and build a life that you can be proud of.
Once you're satisfied, you can find someone to share it with who will add to your life, not take from it.
And be very careful who you hurt - not everyone is replaceable.
