Betrayed? Betrayal Trauma Is REAL

3 min readAug 5, 2023

This is such a touchy subject, trust me, I know. And, when you are going through this shit, it just SUCKS. There is no other way to put it.

I really wanted to talk about betrayal trauma and the effects it has on us all who have gone through it or are going through it. I guess you never really get over it, so ya, all of us who are GOING through it..still.

I remember the day this became MY reality. The day my life was turned upside down and stopped making any kind of sense. The life I was living, wasn’t real anymore. It was FAKE. ALL OF IT WAS FAKE. Well, I wasn’t the fake one, but ya…

My life has never ever been the same since that horrible damn day. I felt SOO damn alone and just wanted to hide but I couldn’t because I have kids. But oh how I wanted to disappear!!!

My life had to go on though because I was a mom after all and moms don’t just stop living if something bad happens, right? So, I still got up, I was still present, and I did what I had to do each day to not only SURVIVE but to also be there for my littles.

Fast forward to today. It has been 9 years since the first initial ‘finding out’ and 9 years living with a betrayal…
