How do you deal with it?
I see it's common in today's media that revenge is portrayed as a justified action against the betrayer. It is perceived that all the blame lays with the one who committed the offense. That causing another hurt as a means to begin the healing process is somehow mandatory.
I take another approach personally. I look at my own expectations. Was I expecting too much? Was I expecting them to adhere to my ethics and standards and not their own? Were my expectations ever properly communicated and agreed upon? Did I just expect them to understand my requirements?
Over the years I've found that it's much easier to enjoy any situation if you just keep your expectations in check and let be what will be. When we expect certain outcomes as the only possibility we set ourselves and others up for disappointment.
