HELPFUL TIP:

Emotional wounds will steer a character's behavior, corrupt his worldview, and cause negative traits to form. To understand exactly how this occurs, please read our tutorial for the Wound Thesaurus.

NOTE: We realize that sometimes a wound we profile may have personal meaning, stirring up the past for some of our readers. It is not our intent to create emotional turmoil. Please know that we research each wounding topic carefully to treat it with the utmost respect.
NOTES:

No one is honest all the time, and the occasional white lie can be harmless. But the more intimate the relationship, the more serious it is when one person deceives the other. When the lie itself revolves around who a person is on their most basic level, it escalates from a lie to a betrayal. The other person is left wondering what else the partner hasn’t been honest about, how she could have missed something so obvious about the most important person in her life, and how the relationship will inevitably change because of this revelation. It’s no wonder that a lie of this calibre can cause a lasting wound.
