I Am Sick of People Letting Me Down

ARE YOU SICK OF IT, COS I KNOW I AM!!! 603 People

    Why does the people who say will stand by you

    are always the ones to let you down the most? I think is because you expect more from those people. But isnt that just sad that we have to expect that they will probably let us down when we are really counting on them.. You do everything for these people and what do you get in...

    Let Downs

    I've been let down by almost everyone I have ever associated with and trusted, so of course I now have HUGE trust issues. I don't ask people for anything, I don't expect anything, and I don't count on people, even after they have made a promise. It just rarely happens the way...

    Honestly I'm so tired of being let down.

    I always keep my hopes and expectations low so it doesn't bother me as much but even then it still feels horrible.
