Intrigue, machinations, machiavellian scheming. These are interesting plot points in novels, or in history class. They are the salacious bits that make stories interesting. When they happen in our own lives, however, they are devastating. They scar us, and some never recover. When we love someone, trust someone, we let them in completely, and when they turn around and betray us, whether it is cheating or a literal knife in the back, it is like a part of ourselves has turned on us. As if our heart simply decided to stop working just to spite us. It reveals our inner most weaknesses, and turns us into hurt animals who are prone to snap at every passer-by, refusing to give anyone else a chance to get in. When this happens to us, we carry that hurt forever, when we do it to others we carry the shame. In either case, we are debased, drawn backward on our path to out fundamental humanity.
