    it's not just the fact

    that it's a lie or fake it's that you make me suspicious of everyone. That is what harm you have done.

    I have a very hard time opening up to people

    for that exact reason. And if I do open up to tell someone, something personal, then I will not tell them the full details. I find myself not telling the same person all my personal details either, so I may tell one friend a private story or ask for advice but then when...

    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...

    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've been in a situation.

    My personal space was MAJORLY violated. The best way to avoid the situation is to hang out with multiple people at the same time, outside of houses, away from private rooms, and always in view of others. I am never hanging out with a guy alone again. EVER. OK.

    Be wise. Guard your heart.

    Pray for guidance. Remain careful about who you allow in your life, and don't let past experiences with people who treated you unfairly make you bitter. Don't allow those experiences to prevent you from allowing the right people in.

    for someone and they treat you like **** anyway. You don't know it because they always the say right things you want to hear. You don't know what they do when you're not with them. It's called trust. I just don't believe in that word. What's another word for trust?
