After finding out that they’ve been betrayed, a person might initially want to lash out or seek revenge. These feelings are understandable, but they can do more damage.
When someone finds out that they’ve been betrayed, a better approach is to take a step back and try to assess their feelings in a safe place.
Taking time away from the person who caused harm, if possible, is also a good idea. It gives the hurt person time to reflect without feeling pressured to get over the harm as quickly as possible.
Once the hurt person has had a chance to reflect and assess the situation, they can decide how they want to move forward. Perhaps they want to go to therapy, seek support from another professional, or end the relationship altogether.
