Recognition

That devastating moment when you are confronted by the fact that someone you believed to be good at heart is, in fact, weak and contemptible, a liar willing to do and say anything to disguise their lies, and you realise how utterly stupid you were to ever help and believe in them. That single moment of recognition when the wrongs done you by this person come at you in a great wave and there is no longer any escaping their nature: you, who have been making excuses for them forever, to friends and family, wanting to believe in them, justifying their cruelty, can no longer avoid the reality of being failed by this person in the most profound of ways. That terrible moment when you have no option to address the fact that they are, and always were, ruined.
