According to the Oxford dictionary, Betrayal is the action of betraying one 's country, a group, or a person; treachery, an eight-letter word to describe something so cruel that some people believe a five-letter word could make it forget. Betrayal itself is a hard thing to experience, but it 's even worse when it 's coming from someone you trusted and loved the most. There is a famous saying that, “Sometimes, the person you’d take a bullet for ends up being the one behind the gun.” Betrayal not only results in hatred from the other person, but also losing trust and making you considered as a treacherous person.
