When someone shows themself

To be different to who you thought they were, I used to think people would ignore it because they were fixated on love which can be blind. But maybe it’s an ego thing too, and being unable to admit you were completely wrong about someone
I dont think love is totally blind.

We see people show their true colors, but there is this part of us that is hoping we are not seeing clearly. We want to be wrong in what we are seeing. We hope they will change - for us. That’s a big mistake.

@CookieCrumbs I thought my ex would “grow up” by the time he got in his early 30’s and it seemed he got even more self-centered by then. I had heard of couples who had a rough patch early on in their marriages and things calmed down and worked out later on.

Sometimes it can be hard to accept they were not what you hoped they would be.
Expectations always lead to disappointment

There is a famous Maya Angelou saying, paraphrasing...believe people when they show you who theyare the first time. You can't ignore the warning signs. Sometimes the heart wants what the mind is saying is no good. I always listen to my head and let them go..

We often have idealizations of people we know, or think we know. It hits you hard when you realise how wrong you were.

It's not always easy to admit when you're wrong but decent people will, at least most of them.

That’s why I don’t get close to people. They can’t hurt me that way.

When someone shows you who they are then you should believe them.
It's hard to admit to yourself that you were wrong.
