If we haven’t dealt with past betrayals, if we haven’t cleansed and healed those break lines on the heart, we won’t be able to deal with the betrayals going on right now. The part of our hearts that’s sensitive to betrayal has been numbed, sometimes damaged, because it hasn’t been allowed to heal.

We may stay in situations much longer than is good for us to do. And that beautiful, precious part of ourselves, our heart, closes– not just to the person betraying us, but to all the beauty in life.
