Email of the Day: 7 Things That Helped Me Cope With Betrayal

Email of the Day: 7 Things That Helped Me Cope With Betrayal

I’ve had a horrendous few years brought about by family betrayal and my son’s selection of a brutal wife. I suffered greatly emotionally, but I found several things that helped me through it that I’d like to share:


1. My husband and I found great comfort in supporting each other through this tough time.

2. By listening to you, I heard callers who were in similar situations, and that helped me understand that I wasn’t the whack job in this situation.

3. My blessed horse. Horses (if you aren’t allergic or afraid) are among the most therapeutic animals in the world. By spending as much time as I could with him, he helped keep me sane when I thought I was losing it.

4. I ramped up my yoga practice and found profound relaxation and better fitness.

5. My friends helped hold me up, had my back and loved me, warts and all.

6. Long, hot baths. Bubbles were surprisingly helpful.

7. Helping others. There is always someone worse off than you. You may feel like you’ve gotten a bad deal in life until you’ve walked beside someone who has been dealt a worse one.
