“I thought I knew the person.” Have you ever said that to yourself? I know that I have, several times, in the past. Today was one of those times for me.
There comes a moment in time when a person has to admit that he or she really does not know another person. All the while you think you know what is going on, what makes a person tick, what the person is all about, might be wrong.
When that happens, there is a certain sadness that comes over you. It happens, I think, because we have to admit our own weakness and inability to perceive a person. We have to admit that we can be duped. We also begin to question everything and everyone else in our lives, personal and professional.
I know that is the wrong thing to do. But, it is a human thing and it happens.
Don’t worry about me over here. I’m just thinking out loud and being a bit disappointed. Tomorrow, I am sure, will be another day and another opportunity to learn more about myself and the world around me. We’re never too old to learn.
