    Trust Is No Longer a Part of Me

    Trust is no longer a part of me.  I have given it up and set myself free. Free of the hearthache, the hurt, and the tears. Free of all the bullshit that may come along through the years. Too many fake people. Too little time. I have given it up is that such a crime. No one...

    Just Short Of Impossible

    I can't trust anyone, I have tried. This is not to say that people are not to be trusted, but I can honestly say that I won't be doing any trusting any time soon if ever again.

    People always burn me

    so it's hard to trust people, but I continue trying in an attempt to make friends. Attending a group counseling session that hopefully will help me.

    Why Is Trust So Hard?

    I can't understand why it's so hard to trust people.. Even the ones who really do care for me. I always think, 'How can they stand me? I can't even stand myself half the time.' or I think they're going to hurt me, or they're lying. |:

    I've been in a relationship with a girl whom i

    thought was "the one" and really gave everything for this person. I opened up and shared everything and listened to her and gave her advice. I showered her with praises and she made me feel really special. I really thought this person was the one i was going to be with. Things...

    accounts belonging to sad excuses for males, pretending to be female I can't trust any female that happens to message me...I apologise if you are female and you do contact me (out of the blue)...but I will treat you as highly suspicious until I'm sure you are who you say you are...

    I Just Keep Getting Let Down...

    It just seems like the majority of the time when I do trust people, they find ways to misuse that trust... it's gotten to the point where I've become really cynical about it and rarely open up to people I don't know. I only really trust (some of) my family, my boyfriend, and a...

    the slightest to the scars that people around me have inflicted on my mind, my heart and my soul.

    Trust Issues

    I've always had issues with trust. Since I was little, my family had (and still has) a lot of secrets. I never really had the desire to talk to people, or open up about anything. The past 2 years, I've had nothing but lies from people that I put all my effort into trusting. My...

    It's hard for me to trust people nowadays.

    Mainly because in the past when I have given people my trust, I've been taken my advantage of and screwed over. If I trust you enough to tell you anything about my personal life, you best believe you mean something to me. I expect you to mouth shut, my trust may be hard to gain...

    I " forget" people's phone numbers/ addresses

    if we really get along because I'd rather hurt them first, before they can hurt me. Every relationship I've ever had (including my immediate family) has hurt me before I knew what was coming, so I tend to stay away from people.

    So true.. She needs you,

    the last thing she needs is for you to leave her like everyone else did because she's too difficult to deal with. She isn't close to her friends anymore, she can't depend on them like she did before. She can't go to her family because they won't understand her. Out of everyone...

    My instinct is to give them 50%

    and have them earn the rest, that seems like 0 now for the internet. 4th time I chatted with someone online for more than a couple of weeks and they turned out to be phony, this last time I recognized their photo and after asking a friend about it they confirmed who the guy in...

    How do you give people in your present and future a chance at trust when everyone from your past has done nothing but break that trust?  Its so hard, when all you've heard are lies, lies about who they're with or what they're doing, when people talk bad about you, say mean...

    Especially people I love.

    This stops me from getting close to people. I'm scared that when I do get close to them and trust them, they'll leave me. I guess this is from experience. I had this great boyfriend, he treated me so well, but I soon found out he cheated on all his past girl friends (he was 3...
