Being naive and trusting too easily. I was 17 when I met my ex husband and he was 24. He told me everything he knew I wanted to hear. I was amazed at the person he was, amazed that he really got me
, understood who I was and what I was looking for. After we got married, the real person came out and it wasn't the same person I thought I was in love with. He openly admitted four months after we were married that nearly everything he told me in the beginning was a lie and he knew that was the only way he could have me. I was young, thought I knew what I was doing, and ended up being a total fool. I wish I wouldn't have trusted him so easily, but then I wouldn't have two of my amazing daughters, so I guess it ended up working out okay.
