    If a friend of yours betrays you twice, and also did it the third time.

    Will you continue your friendship with that person, Will you still trust the fellow

    I will listen to what my heart says. Mind has problem with betrayals, heart loves unconditionally.

    If a friend betrays me twice and also do it the third time, then I will not trust her anymore and I might forget her or him as a friend of mine. I am a forgiving person but I don't want to be taken advantage off.

    I will forgive, but not forget. I will not associate with this person, however if they were to call in need I would help if I could. I can care about someone from a distance that will not change but I will not continue to suffer at their hands.

    I believe that we set ourselves up for how we are treated by others.  If we allow someone to continue to abuse our trust - they will continue to do it.  There is a need to have strong boundaries with other people and it's perfectly acceptable to walk away from someone who has violated your trust 3 times.  There's the saying "three strikes and you're out"... I think it applies very well to a "friendship" where this is happening.  Someone who habitually lies certainly isn't much of a friend and I would make an effort to seek genuine friendships elsewhere with healthier, more reliable people.

    It really depends on what level of "betrayal" we're talking about.
    If it's about a person not being able to "keep a secret" then it's on me to remember not to share things with them that I want kept private.
    On the other hand if it's an "intentional act" done to (hurt me) that would end our "friendship". As the old adage goes:
    "With friends like these who needs enemies?"

    Bolaji.......I have to believe you're serious, although I can't imagine being at all confused about this.
    Continue a friendship with someone who betrayed me 3 times??   Not a friggan chance!!   Why not just slam your head in the car door and then lay down under the tires and let the driver run over you?/!   It's about the same.

    "Fool me once,  Shame on you.  Fool me twice, shame on ME!"    Betray me a third time???    Who's the dummie?  Me or you??
