    It's hard for me to trust now

    because my loyalty was taken for granted by someone I thought was there for me 100 percent. Not saying I don't trust anyone at all I'm just paying more attention to who I let come around me

    To people who read my posts they are probably

    used to the fact that I never send out any negative vibes, but there's a first time for all. I have learnt that trust is a very valuable thing, I should think a hundred times before giving it away. I've always thought I can easily judge who to trust and who not to. Today I was...

    The last time I trusted someone easily was in

    7th grade. I had a new friend and I thought they were cool but until they end up hurting me by telling me that they asked out my crush for me and he said yes but he really didn't and I wind up making a fool out of myself which caused everyone around me to laugh at me and make...

    I never trusted easily to begin with. Its hard for me to open up to anyone. When i found EP i was in heaven. The freedom that this place gave me was refreshing. A place where i can just be me. Sober or not- it didnt matter. I didnt think id make any close friends on here but i...

    It has been said "time heals all wounds" I do

    not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone

    I don't trust easily anymore

    because I found out that a few of my close/best friends talked behinds back, also I've told them secrets that I wish nobody else would know.. The next day the whole grade knows and even a few teachers.. From that day on I'll make sure be careful to who I tell secrets too...

    I Have Problems

    trusting people. Major problems. Probably because every time I trusted someone, up until this year, I was betrayed. So now, I just wait for people I 'let in' to turn on me and hurt me. I know I need to get over it, but how do you get over 19 years of hurt? How do you trust when...

    I can't trust someone easily

    since I was betrayed by my ex-best friend in high school. Since then, trusting people hasn't been easy for me. Trusting someone just seems so hard...now. To trust someone, I need to feel like I can trust them 100% in every single way. Maybe I have a problem. Maybe that's my...

    Honestly it's a GOOD thing to not trust anyone.

    This day and age no one is trustworthy. (Well barely anyone but there are still some rare gems) Everyone is out for themselves and that is it. They want to use you for what you've got for them and then when they get bored or have used you up it's off to the next. People don't...

    Trust is like giving someone a loaded gun

    and believing that they won't shoot you, but some people are like children, because no matter how much you try to tell a child how not to use a gun, it'll go off. They didn't mean to shoot you, and they can't even really comprehend what happened, but it happened.

    I can honestly say I don't trust anyone anymore. I have been through too much in the last few years, and before that. I find the only one I can trust is God. I have been hurt and let down too many times.............the way the world is now, and as much as I would love to trust...

    but they prove that they don't. They say they will be honest with me, and lie through their teeth. They say they will always be there for me, and then leave me when I need them the most. Why should I trust what anyone says anymore if I only get hurt? It just makes me want to...

    I have serious trust issues.

    I know people who just trust immediately. For me, trust is earned. And if you violate it, even tougher to get it back. If you tell me a reason for doing something, just let it be the truth.

    How do you trust someone?

    I can't seem to even share the slightest thing on my mind with someone... a friend specifically. I keep ignoring myself, I keep pushing people away. I keep telling myself that it's better this way, atleast all things are well and i don't **** it up. But it's not, I find myself...

    We are often let down by the most trusted people

    and loved by the most unexpected ones. Some makes us cry for things we haven't done, while others ignore our faults and just see our smile. Some leave us when we need them most, while some stay with us even when we ask them to leave. The world is a mixture of people. We just...

    Society & Such

    Soon after changing my appearance to suit what I like (aka cutting my hair short and dying it red), I realized how ****** up society is. Back when I had long, blonde hair, a bunch of people called me pretty. Random strangers would walk up to me and say they liked my hair, etc. A...

    Partly, it's because I'm less of a naive moron

    so I suppose that's good. For example, being offered to be a shareholder in a business that turns out to be in debt with fines, yeah, no, didn't trust that.

    ...and sometimes I trust too easily!

    The trick is finding out who is worth trusting. I normally have pretty good instincts but sometimes I can be misled. I am thankful for my good friends who help guide me back to the right path.
