    Trust no one. You may think you know someone

    but do you really? There's no way to ever know what people are really about.

    Hemingway once said, "The way to find out

    if you can trust someone is to trust them." That's not always so easy when you've been burned so many times.

    I have dealt with too many liars

    and fakes and users, so it takes a bit to earn my trust. But once you do, I am a very loyal and caring friend.

    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...

    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

    People say they care,

    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...

    How come I start feeling special to someone

    and loving people. I gave people benefit of the doubt I would encourage and support them. I woul be fully honest and I would be transparent. It didn't dawn on me until in my mid 20s that maybe just maybe the reason for my anxiety, stress, anger, resentment, low confidence and...

    ...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.

    When everyone you've ever known has let you

    down this is what happens. Trust must be earned and proven. I hold my cards close to my chest for this reason. Most ppl don't know much about me for this reason.

    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...

    We are often let down by the most trusted people
