    Why Do I Trust At All?

    Almost everyone in my life has betrayed me. Now, I know this may sound like an overexageration, but believe me it is not. My own mother has betrayed me, which is the worst. I cannot trust anyone in my family, nor most the people I call friends. Not that I ever trusted them much...

    I'm not one to believe in the word ' fear'

    for it is a false emotion.. Created by the mind. Let's just say I'm cautious when it comes to giving my trust. I respect and trust no one until they give me a reason to. Both trust and respect should be earned ..
