    I Need Trust To Be Built

    When I first came to EP I was overly trusting and I took everyone at face value. I made a lot of friends that way but I also attracted some people that i would never consider true friends, and I even attracted a stalker and his friends. I don't trust people any longer and it...

    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...
