I Don't Trust Anyone

    I Hear Ya.

    I've been wondering why it is so darn hard to forgive some people in my life for some pretty minor offenses. Then this morning I woke up with some insight.My trust level (measured on a scale of 0-10), on any given day, is about 0-.000001. To let my guard down even an inch takes...

    I'd really love to have someone

    that I could trust no matter what. I just doubt that this will ever happen, especially with this site.

    I'll struggle my entire life to trust people

    with blue eyes. People with Blue eyes still scare me to this day. Well not scare, but I'd never trust or be comfortable around someone with blue eyes. It may sound crazy, but i'm like 84% serious. do not trust them....

    I think I'm too young to not trust people

    but in all reality, I find myself living a life with dulled and blocked emotions. For example, I don't even have the slightest care about my best friend, who I've been friends with for 10 years. I feel as if she is using me as most people in my life do. I love her, I know that...

    It's become even harder lately,one men army comes to mind..It's hard to trust people when whenever you open up to someone they keep leaving..Partly i feel it's my fault for not having my stuff together and over whelming people maybe,but I always try to be as honest as i can with...

    people are rarely honest with themselves let

    alone each other. everyone I have confronted about directly lying to me cannot face it or admit it. always more excuses, always more lies. I feel humiliated when people lie to me. I feel like a bumbling fool in the spotlight off the side while them and all their mates laugh at...

    Nor Myself So they say you can't love another

    unless you learn to love yourself. Huh.... Guess that applies to trusting others. I have messed-up so much in my life.... I don't trust myself.

    Everyone Can Be A Backstabber

    Half my problem is, I'm always nice to people. That's my downfall. I've thought that because people are being seemingly nice, they must be genuine, and my efforts to be nice to them will surely work. I've been stabbed in the back before, too many times to count. But this time...

    Never in my life did I have to think

    whether I can or cannot trust someone. Three weeks ago, my life changed. With that change, it lead me to not trust anyone. Today, I only trust one person. Even tho he's an alien, he's someone I trust with every vent or issues (((good/bad))) that I have. You're the best Billy...

    How can I be sure if these people will not turn

    against me one day? was a question I asked myself after I read a book about war. In the book, even the main characters "best bud" turned against him and nearly killed him. So my answer to my own question is: I can't. So might as well don't trust anyone in the first place.

    People brag about having trust issues

    but that's how I can tell who does or does not have them because those of us who really have trust issues are at war with it. We don't like it. It's not easy wanting to have people around and have people accept you but you can't because this part of you just will not let you go...

    Problem is, I do trust people, and it always ends up being the wrong people. I get hurt, swear I'm never going to give anyone the power to hurt me again, and build a barrier for a little while. Then, I allow the barrier to be broken, and it's the same thing, over and over. I do...

    Nowadays nobody can be trustworthy. This is the reality. Everyone is bad and they tell everything you said about yourself to everyone. Don't trust anyone,just trust yourself.

    It's best not to put trust in anyone!

    People don't care or are probably happy you have the problems that you do. No faith in humanity what so ever. This is the worst realization I've come to as an adult. I've been let down by every single person that I know.

    I have a hard time trusting people.

    Not so much because I'm afraid of them leaving me, but I have the pesimistic outlook that other people are only out for themselves, and they'll use you until they get everything they can from you. So I have a hard time believeing anyone has good intentions when being nice to me...

    I once dared to trust a fellow human being,

    and when that person let me down, I tried trusting again. I repeated that cycle again and again, worst mistake ever. Now I can easily count on one hand those who I (sort of) trust.

    Ignorance Is Bliss.
