I Have Trust Issues

    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 used to trust so easily.

    Things have changed quite a bit. I think it's safe to say that I am more aware than I used to be. Trust issues at such an early age? I don't even know...

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

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

    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 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'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...

    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.

    I google and do background checks on potential

    suitors. I also check to see if they have social media ... wives or children and I am extremely observant when I ask questions. One time I found out a guy I was dating was a sex offender. So honestly you can never be too careful.
