    I learned this the hard way.

    I'm Savannah & I'm being bullied by a large

    group of girls. We used to be friends but when I got tired of hanging out with one girl because she was really mean..she turned her friends against me. Now they won't leave me alone, they used to just say rude things but now they are actually physically hurting me. I don't want...

    I need to just post in here cos I get

    so annoyed… my friend doesn't even know me… she just made out like I'd be really excited by the news that 's club 7' have tickets… I mean, if she actually knew me she'd know I was one of the few who didn't even like S club 7 that much… I knew they had one song a few...

    Intution Only Takes You So Far

    I trust nobody with my feelings ! Even family members,it seems as if people feel better about themselves talking about others. Taking the focus of there own lives away.A tell tale sign that you are not spared or special . I would much rather take a bus and talk to a stranger...

    The people I trust always let me down.

    I'm tired of hurting, I can't do it anymore. I feel like one more push and I'm over the edge and falling. I'm hurting and no one knows because I can't tell them. And I can't tell them I'm hurting because THEY DONT CARE. None of them care.

    Trust can make you powerful.

    Betrayal can break you. I was betrayed by someone, and now I only trust about 4 of my best friends in the world.

    Lessons Are Always Learned the Hard Way.

       I used to trust people very quickly. Hell at one time I even trusted myself! Not anymore.    I don't believe certain words. Words I hear far to often.....but they always stab me in the back. Sorry is at the top of that list. Love is in there as well...

    Everyone I put my trust in hurts me

    so No, I don't trust anyone until they give me a reason too. Blood doesn't really mean much either. I may be young but I know a little somethin about life and the streets. Talk is cheap and people will sell you for 10dollars

    One of the worst mistakes you can make in life,

    is putting your trust into the wrong person. Not only is it emotionally scarring when that trust is betrayed, but it's hard to ever let anyone else have it again.

    Trust is a big thing to earn by others

    and yourself. Trust isn't something you can just pick up you have to earn it. For me I don't trust too many people, I don't think I can even trust one of my closest friends and sometimes u feel I can't even trust my family. You could just say I have major trust issues but I'm...

    My ex-husband was mentally cruel to me.

    People say I'm pretty but after hearing how fat I looked. What a terrible person I am. Why can't I ever do anything right? I heard things like that for years until I caught him cheating. Then I heard she's everything you aren't.

    I live by believing, not trust.

    There's a subtle difference that makes all the difference in the world. When you believe, you get disappointed but you move on. When you trust, you get hurt to the core when someone abuses your trust and be scarred for life about the betrayal. People don't deserve to be...

    That moment when you can't trust anyone,

    not even a person whom you've known all your life. All you have is a teddy bear that you can hug.

    Too many people are shady,

    sneaky and downright dirty. How can you trust people now a days if they are plotting to hurt in the long run. Meaning they won't realize they will hurt you until that time come. I look at anyone in my life as a potential to hurt me even if they are innocent now eventually their...

    She's a fake person and can't be trusted. Btw she has a secret she doesn't want people knowing. She's just not a nice person and I want her to be stopped.

    I tend to not trust people,

    always second guessing or questioning what they say! I've had a great family life and have been surrounded by great friends but still! Men seem to tell you what you want to hear. I have meaningful relationships it just takes awhile for me to trust or believe anyone

    Trust is often times a difficult thing to gain. Not for me. I tend to trust people far too easily. I am a man of my word, I dont mince my words, I do not flatter. If I say I will do something you can bet your bottom dollar that I will do it. It might take me some time but I will...
