The shock of being betrayed always catches one off guard. People wear many faces, and snakes take different paths depending what suits them. Life and things happen, people screw up—but this time it was not an office snitch—it was family. Oy vey is right. So, lift the head up darling, because you have to deal with it head-on, and with strategy. Just like grief, betrayal has its own stages of denial, hurt, and anger.
