    even when the time changes.

    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.

    Never tell your problems to anyone.

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

    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.

    You don't really have a crush on me,

    you're pranking me. You don't really wanna be my friend, you're trying to set me up for humiliation or betrayal. You don't really care, you're just nosey. Everyone is against me.

    When I used to try making conversation,

    a lot of people looked at me with the same f****** question of "so what?" or "who cares?" so now I just keep my mouth shut to avoid any BS confrontation.

    We don't trust people not

    because we have second thoughts about the person. It's because they haven't showed or did something convincing enough to trust them.

    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 may have trust issue

    but I guarantee you. I would ignore millions of guys if you would just let me in. Instead of leaving me out on the porch knocking at your trust door.

    People brag about having trust issues

    but that's how I can tell who does or does not have them because those of us who really have trust issues are at war with it. We don't like it. It's not easy wanting to have people around and have people accept you but you can't because this part of you just will not let you go...

    It seemed like I was always told something and then it would change. I never knew what to believe? I have a very hard time trusting people. I always try to be good to everyone so it makes me wonder why some people have to play games?? Now as I get older I can really see how much...

    especially when the ones you trusted the most were the ones that betrayed you.

    I have trust issues because I have had more

    disappointment and sadness in my life than joy and happiness. I was in love with a guy that abused me and the trust just went out the window from there. I have been single for 8 years now because I can't believe nothing anything say.

    I can't even trust my boyfriend,

    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 have trust issues because I've always had the

    unexpected happen from people I was close with, it showed me that you never truly know someone when they are put in certain situations. It's alright because it's part of life, I don't block everyone out I just keep things limited to protect myself.

    I really can't trust to save my life.

    It's ruining everything, and right now. I'm on the verge to messing everything with someone who means the world to me because I just can't learn to trust. I always think everyone around me wants something, and are manipulating me to get it one way or another.

    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
