    "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...

    Maybe I'm Just Associated With All The Wrong People But

    seems like all I see anymore is people messing each other over in one way or another. I'm not perfect, I have never claimed to be and I never will, nor do  I  expect anyone to be perfect. We all have our flaws and we all mess up from time to time. I used to be the girl who...

    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 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...

    Not all people. This just annoys me.

    The Wall Street Journal publishes a story on how a degree helps relationships. I'm sorry, but no. That's bullshit that thousands of people now agree with. Can't even read the news without hearing some completely ridiculous and purposely influential.

    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...

    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...

    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.
