    I am 25 years old, and I am to a point in my

    life, where I just want to shut all my friends down. I feel like I can't trust anyone anymore and I can't rely on them. Plus I feel like some take advantage of me, anytime we do or go anywhere, I always pay for stuff, I cook for them, I am there for them, and yet I don't even...

    It's so weird how the actions of people

    before you ripple outwards and impact your life. I can't stand the thought of just "trusting" someone. People have never given me a reason to trust them. I don't even trust my own family to be honest. Humans step on each other at the first sign of weakness and the only way...

    Trust isn't in my nature.

    If I trust someone, then I'll eventually be hurt.

    I'd love to be more trusting,

    but you know, people screwing me over that often kind of makes you jaded and cynical.

    Tonight I found the courage to tell my roommate

    about my depression(: And I told her about the screening and the counseling. I even showed her my scars. She reacted perfectly. She wasnt concerned, she just accepted it, listened, asked a few questions, and didnt judge me at all. I knew I could tell her. Besides people on here...

    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...

    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,

    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.

    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...

    I have trouble opening up to people, I am at the age in the middle, 14 years old and I'm still finding out who I am, life at this age has been the hardest I have ever experienced! What in the world am I supposed to do?

    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.

    People will always do what they want to do,

    read that again, remember that. The saddest thing about betrayal is that it never comes from your enemies.

    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...

    A German poet wrote a wise poem: "Einem

    trauen ist genug; Keinem trauen ist nicht klug; Doch ist's besser keinem trauen; Als auf gar zu viele bauen." "To trust one is enough; To trust no one isn't wise; But it's better to trust no one; Than to rely on too many." Friedrich Freiherr von Logau
