I Have a Trust Problem

    Thank You Note

    Thank you for being here for us! I do not have a "Trust Problem " anymore, I trust enormously and it s complicated issue! I think, I would be better to learn from someone to trust just a little. Not everything and everyone!

    All my life. Honestly,

    All my life, people come up to me. Smile, say hi, whatever. We become friends, then best friends. And then this person would turn around and back stab me. I. Am. Sick. Of. It. I feel like that I should hate every living thing in this world now. Innocent or not, young or old. I...

    Not So Good With Puppets.

    I'm a control freak, so naturally I have trust issues. There's no way I can in good faith control another person's thoughts or actions, so there's never any guarantee that my trust won't be betrayed. I work on it, though. Just because I'm a touch misanthropic doesn't mean I give...

    I Can't Even Trust My Closest Friend

    Who happens to also be my roommate. She has no problem telling me things. And things I've told her I'm sure she's kept between us. But to me, a person who is free to talk to YOU about OTHER PEOPLE also has no problem doing the same thing to you. Which I think of her, despite her...

    Trust Noone

    one of my favorite sayings is trust noone. If you trust yourself its a lot easier and the only person you can let down is you.  Sometimes i cant even trust myself...so there you go!.

    Just Guys.

    I have a problem trusting men. Maybe it's because I had a bad experience with my father as a kid, but I am immediately suspicious of any guy being friendly towards me. I just can't believe any guy would like me, even as just a friend, and it's frustrating sometimes...

    A Big One

    I never trust people until they win my trust, and that takes a lot, most of the time. Once I trust them I can not let them go. It is very, very exhausting. It might break me up some day.

    Big Time

    For me it's always been really hard to trust people with any part of my life, there are so many things that I haven't told people. Maybe just two or three people including my sister (oobergoobergreengirl) are the only ones I trust with everything, but it's still hard...

    I find this topic rather odd - a serious point, is there actually anyone (Nazis aside) who does have a problem with such relationship.
