    I have serious trust issues.

    Probably 80% of the things people tell me I'm suspicious of. I can't even walk around the street without the feeling of being watched. I have few really close friends and the other 'acquaintances' that I don't know make me uncomfortable. When I'm in a new group I tend to be...

    I believe everything has to be earned,

    respect, trust, love etc. So I don't understand the whole 'respect your parents and elders' thing. Should they not have to earn it first? why do they just get respect from us immediately without earning it

    if less people believed everything they, too, are told. I also wonder if others personalized things less in order to automatically make anything all about them. So, I guess I wonder what it would be like for people of the world to be much more selfless.
