It is important to place your relationships above everything else. This includes your relationship with God as well as your relationships with everyone around you. In fact, you can come to know Him through your relationships with others as you learn to see Him reflected in others.
In order to see Him in others, we must stay present in the moment and see past appearances --- someone's words and actions --- even if they have done or said something for which you have a hard time forgiving them. When they have done this, it is actually manna to you, because this provides the "opportunity" to put your Will and desire to know Him into place. How badly are you willing to come to Him, to know His peace, Love, and joy? Are you willing to know that appearances are not real and to look past the words or actions of another?
The "harder" the experience and the hurt/betrayal that you have experienced, the greater the contrast to what is Real and the greater your ability to take a quantum leap toward Him through your forgiveness of that person.
