Yes! When people reveal and show you who they really are, believe them the first time. People usually reveal who they are from the beginning, it's just a matter of if we're willing to accept it. Sometimes you just have to love people from a distance.
["Remember this because it will happen many times in your life. When people show you who they are the first time, believe them. Not the 29th time. When a man doesn't call you back the first time, when you are mistreated the first time, when someone shows you lack of integrity or dishonesty the first time, know that this will [probably] be followed many many other times, that will some point in life come back to haunt or hurt you. Live your life in truth. Don't pretend to be someone you're not. You will survive anything if you live your life from the point of view of truth..." - Oprah Winfrey]
Live your life in truth, always pray, and never lose hope!
Today and always, be blessed. :)
