How could they do this to me!!!

He lied!
She cheated!

The things they told me weren't true!

Our struggles to understand this act of treachery abound in literature and drama from the Greek Tragedies - think Jason and Media - through Shakespeare - Hamlet and Macbeth - all the way through to Frankenstein's cruel betrayal of his monster…

What do ya think?
Why is this behavior so unsettling and how can we recover?
