    Shredding Myself--literally!

    At least, that's what it feels like--that I'm shredding myself in order to have any connection whatsoever with people.And why?  All because my parents were very sad, very angry people and when I was a child in the 1960s, society's "rule" that children should be seen and not...

    I am so shocked. It has been 13 years since my dental work was done. Ever since then, I am on soft food screaming for help. That dental work was an award from the criminal compensation board. I am a survivor of an attempt murder. I am so shocked. When the dental work was done...

    I Don'T Understand At All

    What I don't understand is how someone can go from being your "best friend" to hating you..So what if I am friends with your boyfriend? You know me well enough to know that I would never steal a guy. Plus, it's not my fault that you're a ***** to him and he comes and talks to me...

    Not All People...

    I have lost faith in most people. I do have a few people in my life that are genuine, and I feel very blessed to know them. But in general population, I find that too many people are disappointments. People who use the words "friend" and "love" loosely. People who cannot be...

    The Majority

    I've been kicked to the curb, and kicked when I'm DOWN, enough times to know people in general are unreliable. While many have offered their generosity, I know their generosity only goes so far -- mostly because they feel they HAVE to be generous instead of actually desiring to...

    Greed.....

    Never Had Much Faith In Things Or Other People

    What I mean to say is that I have always been afraid that no situation or person would stay with me, that everyone and everything was going to leave me. Why? Well, that's a long story and a short story. When I was four years old my mother abandoned me and my father. Her own...

    Not All

    like everyone else in this group. In fact, I'd bet everyone in this group still retains their faith in each other, if for nothing else than the mutual misanthropy. I've always been of the "**** everyone" persuasion, even when I was little. I'm compassion deficit.

    "have I Lost Faith In People? No, I've Simply Lost Faith In Humanity"

    There's a saying throughout NC when an outsider asked a local for directions - they say, "you can't get there from here" I have lived an amazing life. . . It didn't start out that way, however, my Mother is an amazing woman and continues to be my best friend. And if it were not...
