    Trust And Damage

    I have a really hard time trusting people, especially in romantic relationships. I've been together with my bf for over two years now and though I care for him dearly, I feel that I will never trust him completely. I know it's not him, I know the problem is me. Its my own...

    I've had personal insecurity issues pretty much

    for as long as I can remember. Then for the past 8 years I've been dealing with trust issues after the woman I was with ended up cheating on me with 2 different dudes. Definitely trying to get myself back on track but it's been hard.

    With Good Reason Too!

    As many others within this category, my personal life-experiences and the experiences of people I know on a personal basis has taught me to be careful and none too trusting when it comes to people in general, and especially men. My own insecurities add to my distrust of people...

    It may be true that you cannot learn to trust

    and relinquish control that you simply have to have faith and push yourself to take risk and learn from observing your own behavior that in most well calculated risk taking exercises it will be OK. However I never felt safe growing up and I think that is why it is challenging...

    *some Things Never Change*

    When you're young and people make promises you always count on them to keep them.  What we don't know when we're young is that most people make promises just to keep us interested and calm.  My dad always made promises to me that he, of course, couldn't keep because he...

    I Feel So Stuck.

    This is a first for me - I've never posted anything, anywhere. I grew up in a dysfunctional environment that instilled the belief, amongst many others, that 'you can't trust anyone' and although my logical brain tells me this is not healthy or true my experiences have...
