I Dont Trust Too Many People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 5,399 People

    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.

    I find it very difficult to trust people,

    and I don't even trust myself very much. It is a legacy of my marriage, but I hope I will learn how to trust again.

    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

    I believe finding who you are

    and what you want to be a the hardest part about being an adult. You have responsibilities and more I could name off but let me get to my point. The more in my life I try the more I get hurt. Sure dating is a big factor in this story. I've been screwed over multiple times by...

    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...

    It takes a lot for me to trust someone.

    . It takes a LONG time.. Because I have made mistakes, I have trusted and they have let me down, and I'm not going to make that mistake more than once,

    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...

    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...

    Watch our for the user PeaceAndLove1.

    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 find it hard to trust in the first place,

    but when that trust is betrayed, I don't know what my next step is. And thinking about it isn't helping.

    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...

    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 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

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