    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...

    "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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    This Is a Very True Statement For Me.

    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.

    Never Had Much Faith In Things Or Other People

    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.
