Betrayal and Forgiveness

The theme of being betrayed and betraying someone has played on my mind for a long minute now. Like what are the circumstances in which a really really good friend, or family member, betray someone that loves them. Or think that they were a dear friend. What are the causes of it? What are the consequences of it? Whom does it effect more: the betrayed or the betrayer in the long run?

All these, and then some, are just some questions on why I’d like to explore. Again, as I want to do in my stories, this goes into the human nature of a person. This can also work with Forgiveness. I forgot where I learned this, but the point of drama is to have two characters having interests at the polar opposites of each other – betrayal and forgiveness.
