If someone betrays you once, it’s their fault; if they betray you twice, it’s your fault. – Eleanor Roosevelt

If someone betrays you once, it's their fault; if they betray you twice, it's your fault. - Eleanor Roosevelt


If someone betrays you once, know that it is their fault. You have nothing to do but to endure that. However, if in any case, they get a chance to betray you for the second time, know that it is not their fault.

It is important to understand that life is going to give you a multiple number of opportunities to recognize the people around you and if you are still unable to identify them right, it is none other than your fault.

You must be able to identify people rightly. You have no other option but to have those keen eyes so that you can make out the kind of behavior that you should be expecting from others.

You ought to understand that you should never trust someone who has already betrayed you. You need to be wise enough to understand that if a person has done wrong with you once, he or she would not mind doing it for the second time either.


You ought to be the kind of person who has sharp eyes in being able to identify the motif of the people around you.

When the other person betrays you for the second time, it simply means that you were not able to identify that person correctly and thus, did end up giving him or her a second chance to repeat the same thing with you all over again.

Always try to learn from your mistakes. If someone has betrayed you once, ensure that you are not giving that individual a second chance to repeat the same.

Always keep your eyes and ears open so that you get to know what others are up to! Of course, you would not be able to rectify each and every person but you can certainly save your own feet.


Therefore, the moment you are able to decode one’s real face, be rest assured that you are not giving that same person a second provision to betray you all over again.

Certainly, if he has betrayed you for the very first time, that was not obviously in your hands and you had nothing to do then, but now that you have already witnessed his intentions, make sure that you are not giving that person another chance to do the same thing with you.

We can consider the factor the first time it happened with us, we were not actually aware of the circumstances, and as we got into the situation that didn’t work in our favour.

Now that we know how the things are meant to be, if we still trust that same person all over again, we are doing injustice to our own selves and now we cannot blame anyone else other than us.
