Post-betrayal Syndrome and a Path Towards Healing!

Sometimes the same person you’d take the bullet for is standing behind the trigger. Even imagining such a scenario in context to our loved ones can bring out some of our worst fears to the surface but sadly it’s now very much part and parcel of life. These days it will be difficult to even find a single person who has not faced betrayal at the hands of someone they once held dear.

Betrayal in a personal relationship likes that from a spouse, siblings, friends, boyfriend or girlfriend, and also business partners are common these days. Though experiencing betrayal in a personal and professional relationship has now become a common phenomenon, it continues to affect the individual in strange ways. Betrayal shakes the person to its core making it almost impossible for them to trust again.

Individual who are at the receiving hands experience range of emotions including shock, anger, grief, and loss? They tend to develop issues like fear of abandonment, low self-esteem, trust issues, anxiety disorders, and also PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder).

Post-betrayal Syndrome

The sense of loss and fear of events repeating lingers even after years of the betrayal episode. One keeps imagining scenarios in their head about the possible deception. With all the aftereffects of betrayal, many keep their guards up most of the time, not making way for connections that can fill our life love, sense of support, and intimacy. The space that should have been left for a new relationship is most of the time taken up by the series of questions that are mostly left unanswered by the betrayer. For instance, someone who has been betrayed by their partner more than likely wants to ask questions like for how they were being cheated on, the reason that led to cheating; do they love the other person? Silence against such a question usually creates a blockage in the overall healing.

Some school of thought believes that on an average it takes 3 to 5 years period for people to move on and heal from a trauma given that the victim is getting all the proper care and support.  Though the reasons differ as per individual, excessive ambition, greed, lust, lack of integrity is largely some of the reasons that drive people to go behind the back of their loved ones. While many people get tempted by the potential opportunities if they choose the path of betrayal, many believe that it is the only way one can succeed and thrive in this age. Physical symptoms can range from mild to severe. The manifestation of symptoms differs from person to person depending largely on how an individual processes the emotions. Let’s look at some of the common physical symptoms of betrayal.
