Ever go back and take a good look at things from someon you used to think you knew well, but realize now that you don't know at all?

Was that convoluted enough?

Okay... I've just been going back and rereading bits of the journal of someone I used to be pretty good friends with. Not stellar, but.. well... I felt comfortable enough with them to spew about things that hurt me every now and again and for me, that's saying a lot.
And I don't feel that way about them anymore.
And rereading these things... it's making me see that I shouldn't have felt that way about them in the first place. I just, I dunno... I was too willing to believe their version of events. I wanted to believe that this was just someone who needed some attention, affection, help, understanding, kindness...
I was wrong. I'm angry sometimes that I was wrong about this. I'm usually so much better at picking out this type... mainly because I encounter it so much. Hmmm..
Weird thoughts about my own perceptive abilities and why they can be heavily called into question
