been betrayed by someone outside of us -
in other words someone has done something to hurt us,
been dishonest or broken a promise made:
some trust in some concept was broken.

that took only their needs into consideration,
they may have not followed through on a promise made,
and they may have not told you the truth.

They can take actions that involve you that you may not like -
according to your point of view.
But you are not a victim, no way, no how.
