How to overcome betrayal in the workplace? This has been the question that I have pondering for the last few weeks because I can’t believe and I can’t accept that I have to go through trust betrayal. But what is trust betrayal? According to Merriam-Webster, it is “to do something very bad and hurtful to someone that causes a loss of respect”. Betrayal is a state where there is intentional actions or omissions of a trusted person. Betrayal affects the brain that may include but not limited to the following: damaged self-esteem, self-doubting, shock, loss & grief, and anger. On my end, I eat up all the anger within me that I wanted to rant in social media so I could just release my anger but I know it’s not proper to do it. I wanted to move on but I cannot really help it. There is so much pain and moving on is very difficult but as these days passed by, I am reminded with few things.
1. I have 3 choices: Define me, Destroy me, or Strengthen me.
