It can be wrong about an entire way of thinking or just part of something.

What changed your mind?

How did you feel?

Did it affect you in bigger way than you expected?

Can be anything, any category. Science, religion, relationships, health…

It was a long time ago, but yeah, I was wrong about my first serious girlfriend. We were really close, and never had any spats. Should have married her, but I felt we were too young. Oh well, shoulda coulda woulda, huh? How did I feel? Like crap. But it was my own fault, I should have taken my chances and married her when I could. Still bothers me sometimes, to this day. I try not to think about it much, because I love my wife dearly, and thinking about my first love makes me feel guilty. And I suppose I still have feelings for her as well, but oh well. Life sucks, and then you die.

When a child we were taught to trust as everyone told the truth?
I trusted too easily until I got burned a few times in relationships.

I learned the hard way that trust should be earned not given blindly.
That behind a smiling face is sometimes a good liar.

That sometimes a person who gives little expects much more from others.
Its their game.

I found out much too late that my good friend over ten year period was just manipulating me to pay for lunches when she drove out of town on excursions.

( she was going anyways and would ask me to accompany her, thus I felt that I should pay
for lunch but soon realized when I paid it was at more expensive restaurants! I have since a

few years ago stopped being her friend and I now see that she did that to others as well.
( she was friendly for a reason).

I was extremely disappointed in her an others like her out for gain at another’s expense only.

I still cringe at the thought that some people are like that and embarrassed to had it done to me not realizing that that is what our friendship was based on?
