    The worst thing about being cheated on

    and lied to by my husband for years, isn't the pain it caused. Don't get me wrong, it hurt more than anyone could possibly ever imagine! But that pain eventually starts to fade over time. The damage it leaves behind, becomes a part of you forever.Now I think I am being cheated...

    Untrust The Trust

    The very moment you let go and began to relax is the moment everything in your life bares all. Trust is a feeling of security, and anything breaking that spins your life and esteem into something not only unimaginable, but causes feelings of anxiety, fear which ultimately leads...

    It's not that I don't trust people,

    it's more like I've never really had the opportunity to try to trust people. When I was little, every year I had a new friend, but every year I would lose a friend. I don't really do anything, but I've always been the quite type and I suppose people got tired of associating...

    Have you ever felt something so pressing on your Heart; That you just couldn't keep it in any longer? That you want to share with someone just to be relieved of this burden you carry around with you? You want it to be OUT and gone; maybe you want to feel less guilty. Maybe you...

    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...

    It's very difficult to trust people

    now bc of a prior situation. That being a girl pretending being a boy I really liked! Writing love cards while she laughed at the side. Another reason why I don't date. Feel like they're going to step all over me.

    To pour your heart and soul to a person, and to hear from them, "Go sell your stories to someone else, b*tch!" It makes you want to keep it all inside. Where it's safe.

    I've trusted people I thought were my friends

    they either abandoned me betrayed me or used me, I confessed to my family and they told me how I was wrong or stupid for thinking a certain way. I honestly just want to talk to some one and not have to make up up some excuse or lie.
