    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...

    I feel really alone in this world.

    I feel there is nobody who really gets me or really cares about me. I am by no means perfect but I feel through my experiences with people I have really lost faith in them. I feel completely lost and empty. I don't know what to do.

    This Is a Very True Statement For Me.

    I have really lost faith in people due to outside influences. It really is quite sad because people are a huge part of life.

    I Too Have Lost Faith In People - Has The World Gone Crazy?

    It just seems like people have no respect for eachother anymore.  I especially feel bad for the young people of today.  My teen daughter is always being bullied by nasty girls FOR NO REASON.  I often wonder if its because of these 'reality' shows on TV that constantly show...

    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...

    Someone at school stole my cell phone today.

    We're NOT a rich family, so it's not like I could go and buy a new one whenever I want one. Getting a new phone would cost around $500 because of our plan. It's not going to happen for another nine months. Whoever stole my phone doesn't understand how much it means to me...

    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.

    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...

    Greed.....

    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...
