    And it ******* kills me inside.

    I don't even want to be in relationships out of fear of being cheated on. Especially with EP being filled with tons of other women/men and so forth.. Ugh

    Everyone I trust betrays me.

    I'm not sure if everyone is like that, or do I just suck at choosing who to trust. Either way, having no trust in anyone is really hard. I'm the kind of girl that can't keep it all inside but losing both my girlfriend and best friend made me silent. This is not the first time...

    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...

    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.

    It's hard to trust people

    for me even if it's not a relationship based. I honestly am still scared to get in a because I don't want to be treated like my first boyfriend treated me.

    I mean, if we argued about something you did

    before, and you agreed to not do it again, what makes you think doing it again would result in a different response from me? How can you seriously expect me to trust you? Jerk.

    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...

    Never tell your problems to anyone.

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

    My issue would be that I don't trust anyone.

    Nobody. Even the ones I trust the most, never completely. I don't even trust myself completely so I can't see how I'll ever learn to trust someone else. Sucks. It's not something I'm happy about. Makes it really hard to open up and feel relaxed.

    I have trust issues,

    and honestly I don't think that's such a bad thing. The base instinct for humans is our impulse to protect ourselves. Think about it. Every time you lie, cheat, fight, yell, hide, the way you interact with the world is to protect yourself. So we mistrust others. Perhaps it's...

    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...

    What doesn't kill you,

    doesn't make you strong than you are. It makes you wish your were dead. It's eating you apart, and trust is something that once you kill it on someone, there is no way in hell you are ever getting that back. Ever. S

    i get hurt everytime I trust.

    Everytime. and yet I so want to believe in the good in people that I always give third and fourth chances for people to earn my trust back. that's third and fourth chances for someone to hurt me. what the hell is wrong with me? I just go into relationships waiting to get hurt.

    I'm not the kind of person

    who needs someone to earn my trust, I give it out to those who give me they're word, and hope that they don't lose it. Unfortunately it causes me to be very susceptible to deceit. But it is what it is.
