    The world ive seen is full of lies.

    Ever since i was a little girl, i knew that my father was telling so many lies. I think it really made me the person i am today, someone who can't trust. I can never trust people 100%. Well... this is bothering me. I really want to trust people. But even when i try to trust them...

    All my adult life, I've had people talk me into

    doing pretty much anything through sweet talking me, often times it was something where I had nothing in it for me, they were exploiting the fact that I love feeling useful. I now feel very untrusting whenever someone offers me a compliment, I always think they're either just...

    I hate when girls say "don't worry,

    I don't have trust issues.

    People have lying issues. I'm so over having to label myself this way as if I've never trusted anyone before. Every time I put my trust in someone they show me exactly why I shouldn't have. So no, I don't have any issues. If anything, I'm wiser than before by knowing NOT to...

    I have never been in a relationship

    because of the simple fact that I don't trust anyone, with anything. In fact, I am still a virgin because I don't trust anyone enough to put a valuable organ of my body inside of them. But hey, that's just me.

    I have such a hard time believing guys actually

    want something serious with me. I always think that everything they're doing such as sweet talking & spoiling me is to only get in my pants & leave.

    but not in relationships.

    usually just with simple things like small favors and what not. I'm so motivated to get things done, I'd rather do them myself then attempt to trust someone to help me. I assume they will mess it up half the time.

    I don't know where my trust issues stem from.

    I have them bad. I can barely tell people simple stuff. I feel like they'll tell the world. When I date someone I feel like they're cheating. I always feel like I'm with that person not that persons' boyfriend. I hate people behind me. If they talk I feel like they're talking...

    I never know how much time share with a person.

    I always feel like whatever I share will be used against me and I should never trust Noone because there has been times my trust has been broken. I always see those quotes saying "don't trust too soon" but when should I trust in someone. I feel like taking that leap to tell...

    A year ago, all my 'friends' betrayed me.

    One by one they all stoped taking contact with me. Until only my 'best friend' was left... And in January from the previous year, he left me also alone. I think he might be the only person I will never forgive. He knew what kind of troubles I had, and what does he do? He goes...

    One day in the past my old English teacher told

    me that he would rather trust someone fully and get hurt, then not trust someone and not get hurt. I still can't fathom why he would ever want to keep doing that. He's probably the best teacher I've ever had, and he was always nice to everyone he came across, but I will never...

    My trust issues typically stem from small events

    that I over dramatize and let build up over time. For example, one day I awoke to the wonderful smell of cinnamon wafting into my room from the kitchen. My mouth began to water and left my bed to go devour what I believed to be cinnamon rolls. But I had been deceived! Turns out...

    Specially while chatting,

    i'm afraid that the other person would use me for god knows what and lie to me. I have a good conscience but still foolishly believe people that turns out to be a fraud. These types scares me alot.

    It can be extremely difficult to find people

    who actually have good intentions. I've been taken advantage of so much that I don't take the time out to allow myself to get close to anyone. I've been used and dashed away once "they" have gotten what they wanted. Some people can be so heartless. -just venting

    This last year has really opened my eyes.

    I trusted someone, helped them regain their footing. In return, I was put through experiences that left me traumatized and afraid to trust or help anyone again. I have rebuilt walls around myself that took years to tear down.

    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...
