The disappointment itself, is only masked by the crushing blow to the confidence I have in my own judgment skills.
To me, it hurts less knowing that you are an asshole, than it does knowing that I was wrong. I value the trust I had in you. I did not give it lightly.
I should be furled with you. However, as I often do, I will take the blame.
You are forgiven.
I should have known.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
With this new found strength, afforded to me by your failure and my misjudgment, I’ll say farewell.
I will use better judgement the next time around. Lesson learned.
