Up to what degree can you forgive a friend who stabs you at your back?
When it comes to relationship, the deeper you care and the closer you are to a person, the deeper is the wound when you get a stab at your back. That is because events run counter to what you are expecting things should be. A friend is supposed to be there for you and not to stab you at your back. She/he is there to defend you and explain your side when others do not see why you behave in a certain way. But, when it is your friend who starts making issues about you, it is ten times fold more hurting than when an acquaintance does the same act.
How easy can it be to forgive a friend who stabs you at your back? Can you recover swiftly ?
At the deepest part of my life, when I plunged and was about to drown with too many challenges, I was lucky that my friends were supportive and they were there. In case I will experience a “stabbing” or back biting, I think that the best way is to detach myself from the situation, do a self-retrospection, gain an inner strength and leave it – let it just be part of the past – that is life. Even with too many negative forces surrounding us, there is a strong call to be optimistic because life must go on.
Easy said than done, I know but it will give lots of comfort if learned and practiced in real life situations.
