    For someone who has such huge commitment issues

    that stem from trust issues, I'm surprised I've managed to stay in a relationship for this long.

    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...

    Its hard to trust someone,

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

    I had a role model to whom I have trusted

    Saying i have "trust issues",

    is probably a massive understatement. Because while i do in fact find it hard to trust people on the most basic level, it goes much deeper than that. I was always quite a shy and reserved person, but someone who often welcomed people with open arms, and an open heart. That...

    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.

    It's really weird because

    although I have trust issues I open up to people wayyy too often and then regret it later asking myself "did I say too much?". I got screwed over by family, friends, and in intimate relationships. Yet I want to be that woman that's still close to all her friends and ends up...

    is it any wonder I have trust Issues?

    You close yourself off from people because you've been betrayed enough times that you throw up walls to protect yourself. Then somebody comes along and knows exactly what what you want to hear in some clever way. You want to believe them so you let your guard down and it...

    Never tell your problems to anyone.

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

    Will I ever trust my husband again

    because I know that we belong together and we do love each other very much. Can't bring myself to trust him fully again and he is very good to me. I feel like an insecure piece of S*&^. It makes me hate myself and I never was an insecure person.

    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.

    because of how I was treated in my last relationship. Being in an emotional abusive relationship for two years does that to you. Not sure what the hell I can do to change it or if I even should

    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 an issue. Whenever I get close to

    anybody I feel very uncomfortable. I can't talk about my feelings to anyone, so they get bottled up inside me. After a few weeks I stop talking to my friends because we got too close. Any suggestions?
