I Have Trust Issues

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 27,899 People

    Sometimes I make it worse by trying to rely on

    people who have shown themselves to be untrustworthy. So, it becomes a circle that feeds on itself. Meet the untrustable, believe them despite the evidence, go away disillusioned and end up gaining yet more trust issues.

    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...

    Stop asking for forgiveness

    and telling me to trust you when I'm still coughing up water from the last time you let go and let me drown.

    I don't know why, but I want to let him in.

    It hurts when I try though. He says he won't hurt me, but, what if he ends up like everyone else I know. He's strange too, I like it. He makes me feel like I belong, but I can't help having this feeling that he has different intentions. I don't want to have another toxic person...

    Never ever trust someone that's let you down

    two times because the first one is a warning, second one is a lesson. Third, fourth, fifth? They're just taking advantage of the whole thing called "trust"

    01. I've been cheated on in the past more

    It sucks when all you want is someone to be by

    you and love you and care for you and they always hurt you. I don't wanna be hurt. I keep blocking everyone out. I just want one person. One person I can trust with everything. Trust that you won't just leave me when I become weak.

    All I have to do is see how people behave

    and then if they behave terribly then that's when I don't trust them. I also judge on their looks. Since its a majority of people that I deemed as awful I don't trust them at all. Also because of some past experiences in my life that was irritating to go through.

    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 believe we all have some sort of trust issues,

    mine tend to be severe. Sometimes I let my guard down, but it always hurts. But on some level it's better to feel the pain than nothing at all. We can all learn from the past.

    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...
