    Ha, what's trust? To me trust is being able to

    hear words fall from someone's mouth and not thinking "Lie, lie, lie" every word they say. I don't believe in the words, "I promise." I don't let people show me that they are being 100% truthful because of past experiences. My Father promised me everything. As a child looking up...

    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

    So recently at work this customer has asked

    for my number I have him it. It's a bit older than me 21 years older. We get on really well but I just can't let my trust can ruined again. Do I go with my heart or head? Why is life so confusing especially when it comes to heartache. I've opened up to him that's the first I...

    Why should I trust people

    when all they do is hurt me, I don't know who to trust anymore. I hate feeling this pain and depressment, sometimes it's just easier to shut people out and hide how I really feel! If I don't give people the chance to get close to me then it just saves me from the possibility of...

    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.

    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 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.

    My boyfriend doesnt deal with our personal

    problems with me, he talks horribly about me to his friends to vent out his frustration and I only found out last week. He apologised and said thats just the way he has to talk to his 'mates' so they understand. And while he was saying all that stuff he was being nice to me. I...

    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...

    You ever hear the phrase "I trust people

    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...

    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 :)

    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.

    Anyone will say anything to get you to believe
