I feel that there is a difference between forgiving someone, and allowing ourselves to trust them again.
It's a two step process, or maybe sometimes we don't get to the second step. Which I think is fine.
The pain and confusion come from assuming that one automatically leads to the other - and then beating ourselves up for not being able to live that.

Very true. I have qualified friendships this way a few time. I appreciate and so forgive the person, but trust is a different concern. Do you feel safe? The funny thing is, when there is a problem that you have confronted someone with, the experience (having a frank discussion about how they may have hurt you) could lead her/him to being the person you could trust most...but you don't.
