    I trust people too easily.

    But recently I don't have anyone I can tell anything to. Ah. There's no in between for me

    The Problem Is Me

    Time and time again I keep getting hurt, because I am too trusting. It's a cycle you see I trust that people will be honorable and treat me the way I treat them. Then they don't, I get hurt, close down and put up walls everywhere. I start to open up, in hopes that I do find that...

    I am always opening up to people

    and being there for them but I feel like it never comes back to me. I know that I'm not going to change how I act because it's just a part of me but I do get sick of being the one who always cares.

    I'm Too Trusting

    I'm pretty simple, straightforward and honest. I think that's why the con artists always see me coming!

    Because I Am...

    Because I am so trustworthy, I tend to think that others can be trusted. Because I don't lie and am honest, I tend to think that others are being honest with me. It's not a good thing, sometimes. For I've gotten into trouble or hurt badly by my trusting nature. I must try to be a...

    No matter how much I deny it,

    I always trust others. Regardless of how slim the odds are that they will fulfill their end of the bargain, I still trust them to do it. Whatever the task may be, I always think that it will be just as important to them as it is to me. Even though I know that they probably won't...

    If I Like You, I Trust You

    It's odd that as mega-pessimistic as I am, I'm abnormally optimistic about the people I allow into my life. It always starts out the same - at first I don't trust anything about the people I encounter. I'm inhibited, withdrawn, cautious, and suspicious. However, as I get to know...

    I have been burned many times trusting people I

    really shouldn't. But I also try to give every new person in my life the chance that the deserve, and go into new friendship with my eyes wide open. It's hard but I think it makes me a better person every time I believe someone instead of assuming the worst.

    I can't hold grudges.

    If you hurt me, no matter how bad, in a week I will be back to treating you how I did before. I can't help it. It's even gotten me hurt a few times. Once, my "girlfriend" told me she liked someone else. I was crushed. I moped around for weeks. I didn't want to do anything. Then...

    It Just Appears That I Trust The Wrong People

    nice people don't give me a chance often and yet bad people take me down. I don't have much but still they try to take me down. I am too honest, too genuine and too loyal. too trusting and too innocent minded. I keep hope that I will meet good people I hear people talk...

    Exception Only Reporting

    I am too trusting - you can even see it in how I approach EP - but it's okay - that's how I roll.  I prefer it this way to the alternative, being suspicious and assuming the worst.  I use what engineers refer to as "exception only reporting."  I assume a...

    Gets Me In Trouble a Lot

    I am very trusting and it either get me in trouble or gets my heart broken.  I will tell anyone everything just like I do here on EP.  I don't have anything to hide.  Outside of EP though that is not such a good thing because you trust someone as a friend and they...

    Egg On My Face?

    I disagree because I honestly feel that trusting someone until I have a solid reason not to is the best and healthiest way to live, for me.  And yet, it bits me in the butt again and again. HR is probably not the best career choice for me (and hopefully that will change...
