    In your life you meet people

    who bring much joy to your life and also people who bring much misery to it. I am very unfortunate because I've had more people who bring me misery in my young teenage life. I don't trust people easily and I constantly have my guard up. That's the thing with people who have...

    I find it extremely difficult to trust people

    because of past experiences. I keep myself very guarded and I struggle to let anyone in.

    I'm scared of how cynical I have become.

    I can't look at somebody and not think of every possible way they could hurt me. I have turned even the nicest people that everybody loves into two faced liars in my head, and it scares me how convinced I am that my theory about them is correct. Even random strangers on the...

    I have been dating my boyfriend

    for two years now. He just told me a month ago he cheated on me two times, and when he was away at college, was someone else. Whenever I visited him we stayed in his dorm and watched TV and never conversed with anyone. I always thought it was strange. But I now realize it was...

    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.

    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...

    Worst betrayal from my boyfriend ever.

    I don't even know what to do. He talked me out of buying a house i really loved and its affordable for me as well. Guess what?! 6 months later i find a bank letter dated 4 months ago congratulating him for the house! Does it get any worse than that? Nothing justifies it. He...

    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...

    I have huge trouble opening up to boyfriends

    so my relationships are never as open, intimate and real as they should be. Im always afraid that as soon as I let them in they will just break up with me or betray me somehow. I don't know exactly what started this but it bothers me a lot.

    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.

    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

    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 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
