    Even The Best Cannot Be Trusted.

    I am writing this half out of my experiences, and half out of my thoughts. First the experience I used to have a psychologist. It was not my choice but was forced on me (more info in other stories). I thought it was all because wasnt really socializing with anyone but i still...

    Someday.

    When someone uses and abuses you after you trusted them with your life, it's a hard thing to forgive. It's a hard thing to let yourself open up to someone again, after everything you've been through. Honestly, I dont know if Ill ever be ready. I dont know if Ill ever be able to...

    I can't. Not even my friends.

    There are a lot of things I won't admit to them. If I'm hurting or if I'm sad. I just let them see the mask and not my skin. If I can't trust the people around me then how am I supposed to trust myself?

    =/

    Not to long ago, my trust got broken, my heart took a LOT of pain in, I blamed mostly myself for letting someone in, and giving someone that kind of power to hurt me like that, and to give someone that much effect on myself. Now I am very careful about who I trust, to the...

    Can't, Won't, And Never Will Trust

    Every one that I've known has either kicked me while I was down, used me, taken advantage of me, and just plain stabed me in the back. I have 0 to 1 friend(s) and I don't know if he even wants to talk to me anymore (see my 'I Am So Confused' story for the details). Everyone at...

    I Can't Trust My Wife...

    She has been too critical. My dissociation was set up to defuse the rage  pain, and fear I felt when my parents were abusing me verbally, because to show emotions, especially anger, was generally to escalate the abuse.  If I "backtalked," I could have gotten hit. I think my dad...

    This time the damage is bigger .

    And I unable to accept it. It wouldn't make a difference if I am alive or not . Sometimes it's about the internal peace and I've lost it. I can't look at myself in the mirror. I don't know I'm losing control. I said it a thousand times that don't make me see dreams again...

    Everybody Is Just A Fake

    It feels like being trapped inside a bottle when you can trust anyone anymore, then it's simply depressing when you can't trust yourself. It even started off with me not being able to trust myself and very little to no people, leading to many mistakes being made. And all of the...

    I Don't Trust Anyone, Let Alone Myself

    I can't trust anyone with information about myself.  I can't  trust myself to do something that will benefit me.  My problem is that I don't believe in myself.  It's pretty bad when you hate yourself and can't control your feelings.  All I want is to...

    I have extreme and crippling trust issues

    because of my parents. They are extremely emotionally abusive and they put me down every chance they get. They'll call me worthless, good for nothing, failure, and once I start to shut down, to scratch myself until I bleed, to go in my room and just stare at the wall they ask me...

    I never believe when people tell me they care

    about me and I can't trust myself to hold back from temptation. It is really hard to make new friends and relationships because you need trust.

    It's a depressing thought

    when this sort of thing comes to my mind, but I've been thinking about it a lot lately, and the more I think about it, the more hopeless my cause seems to be. My reasons: - I had a chaotic/confusing childhood (involving moving around the country, father going to prison + being...
