Mel Robbins: how to bounce back from betrayal
In this Freelancer’s Lunch, we turn to motivation expert and podcast host Mel Robbins. Mel shares her experience of being betrayed by someone she trusted in her business and offers guidance on how to approach betrayal in life and business and become all the stronger for it
As a freelancer, you are faced with many challenges on a good day. But what if someone you collaborate with or you start doing business with betrays you? Once the shock, anger and self-doubt set in, how do you get through the emotions logically? How do you approach this individual or client?
In this latest edition of The Freelance Informer’s Lunch, where we share videos we think will inspire and inform to make you a stronger freelancer, we turn to Mel Robbins, an American change and motivation expert, best-selling author and podcast host to get some guidance on the subject of betrayal.
Mel experienced betrayal in her business and she shares her story.
Here are some key takeaways from the video:
- Betrayal can be a very painful experience, but it is important to remember that you are not alone.
- There is no right or wrong way to deal with betrayal, and the best approach will vary depending on the situation.
- If you do decide to confront the person who betrayed you, it’s important to do so in a way that is productive and respectful.
- Self-compassion and forgiveness are essential for healing from the pain of betrayal.
Mel also emphasises the importance of figuring out your goal before confronting the person. Are you trying to fix the relationship or are you looking for closure? Once you know your goal, you can decide whether or not to confront the person.
