    In The Past...

    There’s a reason, I don’t trust people. I find it hard to trust them because every person I’ve ever opened up to ran away as quickly as they could. Sometimes, if a person gets too close, I push them away before they run. Do you know how much that hurts? To never get close...

    We don't trust people not because we have second thoughts about the person. It's because they haven't showed or did something convincing enough to trust them.
