A very valuable lesson was learned on my part. You never really know somebody, even if you have evaluated and took your time to get to know them. It’s still a crushing blow when you realize there’re not who you believed them to be. Doesn’t make you less of a person, it just mean they fooled you. I learned over the Thanksgiving weekend that just because you’re wise doesn’t mean you know everything. Being wise doesn't stop you from being hurt or letdown it just makes the recovery period a little shorter.
