    Stop asking for forgiveness

    and telling me to trust you when I'm still coughing up water from the last time you let go and let me drown.

    some people can't wait for the opportunity too use them against you

    Hahaha I just trust no one full stop.

    Hahah I even found out the other day that I couldn't even trust my own twin sister. Hahah but that is life I guess, after all it's just a big game that everyone hopes to win. Ridiculous overstatement you may say, clear cut truth I say. Life is ****** hey!

    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.

    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 have trust issues. I hate it.

    I try so hard to ignore them that I ignore warning signals. I then put myself in a situation that enforces my trust issues. I will stay where I hate to be because I don't even trust myself. atleast I know what to expect.

    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 don't trust men. I am afraid of them.

    I have never never been sexually abused. But I have had a psychologically abusive relationship with my dad for most of my life. I can't remember not being afraid of him. As a child we would have to tiptoe around him not to make him angry. If we were watching TV, we dare not 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.

    Why would I trust someone who's been in my life

    for a day when the person who I knew for four years ****** me over? If she couldn't be trusted, no one can.

    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.

    I had a role model to whom I have trusted

    I have no issue with my issues.

    Anytime I second guess my cynicism Im proven right every time. Only two things in my life are certain; regretting attachment and picking myself up again.

    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...

    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...

    I just feel like he is using me

    for a first love experience and then I'll be tossed away as nothing. I don't trust that I'm anything but a tool for him. I want to be valued for who I am and not just for sex.

    Never tell your problems to anyone.

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