The Way We Were

"When someone close to you betrays you, can you ever be close again?" asked a character on tonight's "Desperate Housewives".

I suppose it depends on the circumstances of both the relationship and seriousness of the breach of trust. The closer the relationship, the more the betrayal hurts. If you are very close to a family member, spouse or friend, the better the chances that both of you will want to mend the breach.

But, I have found that no matter how close you are, or once were, being close again is not always possible. Sometimes, you just cannot go back to "The Way We Were".
