Broken Heart, broken Trust and a Broken Reality: How can I forgive the One who wronged me?

Has someone ever broken your trust? Maybe a friend you have known for a long time did something so bad or so small that when you found out, you felt like you could not trust them anymore. 

It’s hard when someone does something that breaks our heart or even worse our trust. What can we do?

First, we can talk to God about our deep hurt and tell Him how we feel. In return, He will remind us of His trust that we have broken at one point or another. This will help us to acknowledge how much we NEED HIs forgiveness. Once we ask for forgiveness, we will feel that we need to forgive the person that hurt us. 

Finally, we need to set up boundaries, not walls, between us and that person. Explain to them how honest you are about your deep anguish and hurt and also tell them that it will take time to trust them again.
