"I thought I had a better judgement of character than that!"<<<<<<<that is the killer!
When we've had the trust yanked out from under us, the worst thing to deal with is the loss of trust in OURSELVES. Cruel & unusual punishment. This happened to me a few years ago and I felt as if my world shook, that and an utter distrust in the people around me. Knee jerk reaction really. Looking back I realize that without having our trust stolen occasionally we'd probably end up marshmallow soft. The experience hardens us to a degree, but enables us (once you've recovered from the sadness) to develope an even better sense of judgement. A necessary evil. The key is not to allow yourself to become jaded. Remember on average that people suck...and suck large. There are those around that can be trusted though....it's a sorting game. Chalk it up to experience and tell yourself you're that much more savvy in the judgement department. For now however pamper yourself a bit....the sting will lessen with time.
Untrustworthy people tend to be kind of sneaky about it. They have a lot of practice hiding it. I've been where you are more times than I can count, and it never gets easier to deal with when you feel that knife in your back.
