I Have Trust Issues

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 23,196 People

    I don't even trust my family,

    If you think about it, one morning, your dad or mom could just kill you all? What's stopping them? I rarely trust anyone, if I do, it takes years to build up. And then one little thing they do, it all just crumbles down again

    You can't trust anyone.

    Even though they may be close to you, they can still betray you and hurt you. I trusted my step sisters with a big secret and they told my mom and now it's just awkward between my mom and I. Pretty much everyone I know is a liar and can't be trusted. I feel like the only person...

    I can't trust easily.

    But, when you break it, don't expect to get it back, ever.

    I don't not trust people

    because I've been through some traumatic event. I just see people differently than most people. I see them for what they are, and who they are as a person. I understand people very well long story short, and i guess I just don't see people as very trustable

    I don't know what to do with my heart,

    because I worry so much. And it puts my body through so much physical pain. I try to remember to let go. It's hard. Maybe I should say to myself that it is easy. I'm trying to fake it until I make it. I'm trying to heal my broken heart. This is a long journey I am on, one that...

    So, in learning to trust again I have learned

    that I have become someone that isn't trustworthy. It seems like and easy fix...just start being honest, but it isn't. When you're afraid of people not liking you it becomes hard to be yourself without trying to seem perfect. Then you attract people who like you for all the...

    The word trust has haunted my mind every now

    and then. The word trust has a meaning, but now I'm unsure what to feel. I use to trust people too easily, but now I become careless of others words and actions. I cannot trust again when my trust has been betrayed by the person you trust with your heart. I learn that for a...

    I'm learning to trust again.

    It's hard but one of the first steps is not listening to or following every thought and urge inside your mind. There is something at the root of always expecting to be hurt. A lot of times it boils down to that person you still haven't forgiven. Mistrustfulness can turn you into...

    I learned that people will abandon you,

    and hurt you at one point or another. But that doesn't mean losing your faith in people. Fake friends make real friends shine. Your bad relationships make the good ones golden. Believe in yourself that you deserve the best, because you're special :)

    I have a lot of trust issues

    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...

    The way to manage trust issues

    and still live your life is to not have expectations. The ones who love you are not supposed to hurt you. But they do. If you accept that possibility and are prepared for it, it won't hurt as much. You equally have to accept that you will not love as deeply. It's survival of...

    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

    If you say you can trust someone then you are

    admitting to something even greater then love. Trust involves all your thoughts and emotions to be given to someone so they can have. Trusting someone is knowing that you can be hurt so bad that none can even know. This is why trust is a word of great power.

    New personal rule... Never tell anyone anything

    personal in person. They will hold it against you every chance they get. Or at least that's the common trend within my group of "friends". Dropping more people from my list of friends.

    That's what trust is to me. When I trust someone, something, I am all in. I trust totally, blindly, selflessly. 90 percent of the time, I get hurt, disappointed, disillusioned. It stirs me, gets me on-guard, scares the hell out of me. When red flags start flying. I bow my head...
