    I’m glad we’re connecting again.

    :) I couldn't hold back! I just had to tell my dear friend everything, everything that's been happening, that's been happening with me and my family. For so long I kept so much to myself - I felt the need to reach out to tell someone I trusted, and I thought of him. I just trust...

    I don't trust easily

    because of what happened in the past. I can't say or open up my problems easily. I always have doubts if I can really trust someone.

    I Have Never Trusted People Easily Since I Was A Young Child

    I have never trusted very well and it goes back to abuse from a very young child or toddler... the night I signed up to ASCA I wondered if I should trust - I got a taxi but the whole way I was edgy and I rang my mum fearful of what I might find when I got there... she told me...

    The first love of my life, ended up shattering my heart into a million or more pieces... He told all of his friends when we lost our virginity together, then continued to say that he "had me wrapped around his finger" I will leave the rest up to your imagination - he...

    I Don't Trust Easily

    Growing up, I've seen nothing but negativity, pain, and betrayal. In response, I have closed myself off to the world while being open to the dwindling positiveness.  In few cases have I seen things worth giving my trust and hope in.  So, despite my last story and my screaming...

    My Double-standard.

     I don't Trust easily at all. I always assume most people I know will end up betraying me one way or another. I've been back stabbed by so many friends in the past it's ridiculous. Thankfully I've learned to pick my friends better and learned which ones really were my true...

    People Trust Me, Before I Trust Them

    I never tell too much about myself. Even with my close friends, they know enough about me to put on either an index card or 1 sheet of paper. That's it. On the other hand, people find it VERY EASY to confide in me about all their weaknesses and issues. They'll give me a tidal...

    It's funny when a complete stranger,

    who you've only spoken to for many 20 minutes, tells you that you can trust them. It's funny when you feel as though you can trust someone, and you cant. It's funny when someone you've known all your life and you had entrusted with all your secrets suddenly isn't trustworthy...

    Never trust a troll. There was this one user

    who sent a note to me on Deviantart - started out friendly at first with a bit of advice but then it turned into a Reason You Stink speech and the user was just calling me out for no reason other than other trolls had done it, it was just pathetic. So naturally I blocked him...

    I quite frankly don't trust anyone

    but some of my family members, well I've been taken advantage of multiple times by: friends, family, and partners. I'm just to much of a people pleaser I suppose, but I never trust anyone that much anymore; it's just my dad left, my moms boyfriend left, my uncle left, my friends...

    I have been lied to and manipulated by lots of

    men, I just cant seem to trust what anyone says. There are so many liars and users out there, and me being submissive doesn't help much either.

    I Don't Trust Easily

    I just don't. Not a single one of my friends (or family) know more than the most general things about me. I come off as very open and honest, since I'm a bit of a clown and can seem pretty shallow. And that's the way I try to keep it. Not a single one of them knows a single...

    I Use to

    People will lie to get what they want. They will tell you whatever you what ever you want to hear. So now I always second guess what ever anyone tells me until they have proven their trustworthiness.

    Too Many Mistakes.

    I used to trust everyone with everything. I believed that people deserved to be trusted unless they proved otherwise. Clearly, I was very naive. I got screwed over. A lot. Now, I only trust one person. Barely. My boyfriend. We've been together for almost 9 months, but I still don...

    It's a Privilege

    In my mind, trust is something that must be earned. I don't trust easily although I do have a lot of trust in those who are close to me who have proved themselves. I trust my man 110% because he deserves it

    I Wish I Could Trust

    I Can't

    I haven't ever been hurt by anyone *not badly enough to give up on trust* but I think I'm afraid to let someone in and connect with them out of fear that they will damage my trust and then I'll be left feeling stupid and lonely over something that I shouldn't have done. I know it...

    Oh But When I Do...I Trust Hard

    If you have earned my trust friend, you have earned it from someone who has the physical and emotional scars to back up his play. I am not saying you should feel special, I am your equal. You should just know someone who wants to, but simply can't trust many, took notice of your...

    I Don't Have To.

    For a long time, I thought that I didn't trust people because they were unreliable at best; malicious at worst.  I felt that in order to feel safe and confident about my emotional and physical well-being, I needed to maintain distance and avoid opening myself to them.  I have...
