Being betrayed by a friend whom you trust with your life, hurts the most. The pain lasts longer when the betrayer happens to be your closest friend. I would like to share my experience about how a friend stabbed me at my back.
It was around a year ago, when my close friend Sam asked me to lend my laptop to him. I was completely aware of his careless nature, but being his close friend I could not turn down his request. He needed my laptop to complete his pending assignments as his own laptop broke down. He assured me to keep it safe and return it back as soon as he had finished his college assignments.
I waited for 2 weeks, for Sam to give back my laptop. I felt suspicious when he starting giving lame excuses for returning it. He even stopped taking my calls when I decided to visit him to get back my belonging and he confessed that he took it to his college but misplaced it there. Due to his negligence, he forgot my laptop at his class and later when he came back for it, he was not able to find it.
He was lying to me this whole time, and I felt extremely deceived when I learned about the entire truth. He was afraid to tell me the reality as it could affect our friendship. But I’d have accepted his apology if he had told me about it in the first place without giving excuses. I forgave him later as he was very guilty for his irresponsible behavior.
