I’ve tried to make a comment a couple of times. I think I am still a bit too shocked. If this is the person I am thinking of, and it probably is, then holy crap, did he ever have me fooled.
I don’t think any of us should blame ourselves for trusting. My all time favorite quote:
“People do not seem to realize that their opinion of the world is also a confession of character.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson
Everyone will act on the assumption people are much like they are. I didn’t need this confirmation, but these happenings show you are trustworthy people. And how you’ve dealt with it all shows you’re also people with integrity and determination.
I am so happy This Glorious Mess is still around. It holds a special place in my heart. Along with everyone in it.
