The 5 Types Of Betrayal That Are Just As Destructive As Cheating

Relationships don't always just end based on one catastrophic event like cheating. Sometimes it's a series of events, repetition, a shakey foundation, or simply a different kind of betrayal.

While cheating is quite horrible and often impossible to come back from, there are other things that feel just as bad. it's any action or act that wasn't done with the best intentions, that damages trust, loyalty, and the commitment of love a couple once made to each other.

Refusing To Compromise

Relationships are supposed to be based on mutual effort. That means that to create an equal power dynamic there will be times when each partner will have to put the needs of the other first.

Part of love and compassion is recognizing when to step back and make the other person feel good. That means that always imposing your own way and needs is a form of betrayal.

A significant other should never feel like they have to "earn" their partner's love. A genuine relationship is based on love and forgiveness. It's also based on taking accountability.

A real form of betrayal is one a person is made to feel like they don't deserve to be loved just for being who they are but that they have to consistently work at pleasing their partner.

Taking Advantage Of Vulneravilities

If your partner trusted you to share their vulnerabilities or insecurities with you, then the last thing you should do is use them against them. Even if during an argument you notice the influence of these vulnerabilities, there is a time and place to bring up your concerns from a genuine place, rather than use it as ammo to prove our point.

This can be even worse when it's used to simply put the other person down.

Not Keeping Promises

A couple should be able to rely on each other. This applies in both small and big ways. It means being on time, it means respecting boundaries and it means that if someone changes their mind about a promise they once had made, they communicate through it.

It's okay to change your mind but it can feel like lying when you promise one thing and then just not do it for whatever reason. Partners should be able to count on each other and keep some level of predictability in their trusting relationship;

Not Making The Relationship A Priority

Having friends and hobbies is important but it can't always come first. We often get caught in life's pressures or work a demanding job that takes a lot of time away from home. We may not mean to neglect our partner but this lack of quality time can end up betraying the entire relationship.

A couple needs to take the time to bond, grow and keep on creating memories so that even if the relationship doesn't work out, they can find solace in knowing that they tried their best.

Just A Matter Of Minutes

Perhaps the most interesting factor in life is that all it takes for a drastic life change is just a moment. This can be good or bad. In a moment you can lose everything, say the wrong thing, or trip and fall into a lifetime injury. But at the same time, our whole identity is created in moments, such as the moment of your first kiss, the last time you see someone you loved, or the moment you hold your newborn baby for the first time.

This set of twins was born within just minutes of each other. However despite being twins they were born on different days, different months, and even different years.

Did The Hospital Make A Mistake?

Now it's easy to wonder: "how could this even happen?" Maybe in the heat of the moment, a staff member accidentally wrote the wrong date on the birth certificate or the system made an error.

But the situation was much simpler. What happened was that parents Fatima Madrigal and Robert Trujillo of Greenfield welcomed a son named Alfredo into the world on New Year’s Eve at 11:45 p.m, their local time. Now that part makes sense. What makes this story interesting is that exactly fifteen minutes later, another baby pushed out and the couple welcomed Alfredo’s twin sister Aylin. This put the time of her birth to be on New Year’s Day, a whole day, month, and year ahead of her brother's. Now he can always claim to be the oldest and no one can argue against it.

The Magic of A Unique Birth

Thankfully both babies came out healthy, despite the complications that the birth of twins can sometimes face. Aylin was welcomed into the world at 5 lbs., 14 oz., while her big brother, Alfredo weighed 6 lbs., 1 oz. Even their parents were amazed that their children now had different years on their birth certificates. The mother explained: "It's crazy to me that they are twins and have different birthdays."

Although this might not be the first time this happens, twins with different birthdays are rare, and the chance of twins being born in different years is about one in 2 million. These babies defied the odds from the moment they came into the world, now they can take that with them for the rest of their lives.

Imagine The Birthday Parties

Dr. Ana Abril Arias, who oversaw the delivery said that it was certainly one of the most memorable deliveries of their career. It's interesting thinking about how the twins will lead their lives after they've made such a remarkable entrance.

Twins often feel like they are in competition with one another, in an attempt to build their own identity and feel unique. Now they can have birthday parties a day apart and really feel like, despite their connection as twins, they're both still unique individuals.

Twins Make For Only 3% Of American Births

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are typically 120,000 twin births every year in the United States. The births make up just over 3 percent of all births, however, which is a considerably small percentage. Their uniqueness allows them to tap into abilities that help them form really strong bonds. They sometimes can even tap into abilities that the average person can't access. For instance, 40% of twins invent their own languages, some even say that they can almost read each other's minds. This could be due to the fact that twins start interacting in the womb at 14 weeks.

However, they also hold their differences. In fact, Identical twins have different fingerprints and twins can even have completely different skin tones.

Stranger Things Can Happen

The year is just beginning and yet newborn babies made headlines within seconds of coming into this world. It puts into perspective how quickly someone's existence can make an impact, and how simple that impact can be. This year, ask yourself how you can make your mark, and watch its ripple effects.
