No, not in a happy mood today my fellow friends. Little bit upset about something. Already had two cups of coffee but I still feel that I need one more cup of it. The reason behind my off mood is betrayal. Relax, no one betrayed me now but a person whom I knew. The matter of fact, the betrayal came from the very own people. Why on earth this happen always? I'm sick of it. Lie & betrayal, both are the hated things of my life because I know how much it destroys.

Hello guys. It doesn’t matter whether I'm happy or not but the show must go on. So, welcome to another journey here with your host, Lucifer. I want to share the feelings with you. Where else should I go, right?

Yesterday I was going to market in the evening. I was buying some fresh fruits when a hand just raised beside me. Someone was asking for help. I understood and I put two apples on that hand without looking at the face. Within a nano second, one thing got my attention. That person has 4 fingers and that reminded me a specific person of my life. I looked at the people who just moved. I was shocked as it was the person whom I was thinking about and he was begging from people! My primary school's math teacher, Mr. Zahid. I was in completely shock because I haven’t met him since he got married and settled down in South Africa. That's a long story but now he was begging & his body shape was too odd. I asked the shop owner about the fact. He told that for last eight months Zahid sir is begging and living this miserable life. He has lost his memory and only speaks when he needs to eat something. He can not recognize anyone, not even his parents. Just imagine how pathetic the scenario is!

The question is how this happened. When I returned home, I asked my uncle about it and then I had the information. His brother betrayed him in South Africa and beaten him badly, later sent him and disconnected every communication with the family. His parents, sister and Zahid sir are living here in miserable conditions. Matter of fact, the girl who he married, betrayed him too by joining with his brother. This hit hard and slowly Zahid sir lost his memory because of that shock. That's the story.

A common story for nowadays situations and I agree. People get betrayed each and everyday. Nothing new to discuss. Millions of cases are filed in police stations. But why is this happening? Why we getting these behaviours from our very own people? We trust them & in the end we are stabbed with the lust of their betrayal knives!

People don't have power over us. We give it to them. That's the main point here. We authorize them, we allow them, we hand over them the supreme power & in the end they betray us. People living with us, working with us, in short dealing with us in various ways, needed to be more specific about their goals. But the ironic fact is, no one is eager to open up about it. They remain silent in their ways. Whom to believe then? Brother fighting against brother, wife or husband double cheating on their partner, colleagues are double crossing their boss. There is the single silver line of trust & betrayal on which we are walking. Ask me & I will say I that have trust issues now. I simply cannot believe anyone.

It is us who have the faith on people & allow them in our life before getting stumbled over their barricades. That's the major problem now. People are making fun of our trust & faith. It is really hard to see those close persons turning back on us. Human beings can handle defeat from their enemies. But adjusting the betrayal is harder than anyone can expect. Because in the end, we blame ourselves for it as we gave them that independence in our life to come & destroy.

I'm sorry about your teacher. I agree with that. The more we allow someone to enter our lives, the more we can expect the effects of their behavior on our feelings.

That was so sad and a painful fate for your teacher. How could people be so selfish and even do such inhumanity act. For sure he suffered a lot of pain until he's inner self give up the reality.

Man when I hear cheating in married couple, that really disheartens me. The world has become very corrupted in every field and to survive that one has to be very strong both by physically and mentally and especially in relationships, never underestimate your worth. The day you did that, you gave the other person edge over you.
