I Have Trust Issues

    I'm not sure if it's the lack of trusting myself

    or trusting others. God only knows I've made my fair share of mistakes. I will own my mistakes and vow to do better. Open my heart to others and have FAITH that they choose not to hurt me. The sea can not always be smooth. Rough waters are sure to come, not sailing threatens...

    When you lose my trust.

    ..I dont think that I could trust you again. I'm really guarded with my feelings and I surely trust my gut/instinct.

    I have trust issues. I trust easily

    but once lied to its hard for me to trust anymore. I hate lying so i expect others to be truthful with me. It seems lying is a part of every human being. I just cant sleep well if i lied about something. I will be thinking about it until the whole time.

    People always say: "Just trust me.

    " And all I wanna do is scream that I can't just trust someone. Millions of questions and comments shoot through my mind. I always end up not trusting them because my own head screws up every chance I get to trust someone. Like my best friend always knows when something's wrong...

    Trusting guys is such a hard task

    for me due to the betrayals I have experienced in my life by men, especially family members. I worry I would never be comfortable with someone due to the fear of being hurt mentally, physically and sexually. I always think guys have bitter intentions.

    I have trust issues with others

    not only professionally where they lie to me but here on the Internet too. It is a shame so many have to lie to get what they want in life. When others lie to someone, they will lose face in the end because they have to remember lie after lie they have told to others. That is...

    My fiance of 2 years was texting other women

    while we were at the hospital saying our last goodbyes to our 2 day old premature daughter. If I cant trust you to be loyal at our WEAKEST point how can I trust you at all?!? Like right after she passed and we went back to our room he started texting other women. That's not only...

    Saying i have "trust issues",

    is probably a massive understatement. Because while i do in fact find it hard to trust people on the most basic level, it goes much deeper than that. I was always quite a shy and reserved person, but someone who often welcomed people with open arms, and an open heart. That...

    Never tell your problems to anyone.

    20% don't care and the other 80% are glad you have them.

    somebody they do something to hurt you and you can't trust them. Every time you try it seems like it get worse and worser. From your family to your friends and your relationships. It's like you have nobody but yourself and all you do is hold it and run from the fact that nobody...

    I can't have faith in people when they let me down time after time. if you can't understand that then why are you still here? it's not fair to make me feel bad about not being able to trust you when I can't control it. and believe me, I try. I try really hard to see the best in...

    Most people learn about personal boundaries

    during childhood. Parents and teachers show them through discipline, and example, what behaviour is tolerable and what is off-limits. But I didn't have that kind of upbringing No part of me was sacrosanct, there were never any uncrossable lines. And in truth, I still can't...

    because I was abused in my early life. I was adopted and not all adoption agencies nor foster parents are great and meet the needs of the child. As I said, I had been abused as a child, so I do not trust a lot of people; male and female. You have to earn my trust with respect...

    Letting someone close to me,

    is just giving them an invitation to hurt me. I know that not everyone is a cruel, twisted bastard, I know people make mistakes, but I also know that I can't get hurt again.

    Everybody Lies

    That's my philosophy in life taken from the great show House. Basically because of a family member badly breaking my trust I have trust issues and so always go with this philosophy because it's so true about everyone. Trust can take forever to build but seconds to destroy
