    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.

    I dont trust anyone. Not one single person.

    Everyone i ever trusted has screwed me over and let me down. At a young age i learned that the only one i can count on is myself. I dont ask anyone for anything and i like it that way.

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

    I won't invest my time into something

    that I don't know the outcome to, hence why I have trust issues. I rarely put my guard down. I'm always on the lookout. I like to have control of my life. If my alertness can prevent me from getting hurt, then so be it. I try to believe there is good in everyone. Not everyone is...

    Never tell your problems to anyone.

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

    My boyfriend broke up with me

    because he said ' my trust issues are getting worse' well it's not my fault he cheated on me twice, is it? No. The other day he yelled at me because I wouldn't have 'fun' with him, sorry for ranting.

    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...

    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'm scared of how cynical I have become.

    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.

    Yes I have major trust issues.

    I have been burned too many times in the past to trust any friend or boyfriend. Boys they lie and cheat and are very secretive. A friend they tend to stab you in the back sometimes. I try hard to trust but some how the person that i am trying to trust ***** it up really bad. I...

    but I admit. I always see the good in people. I trust people. As naive as it may sound, I do. I used to think I'm a good judge of character, I can tell when someone's up to no good or when someone could never under every circumstance, hurt me. But unfortunately nothing in...

    I have been with the same guy

    for 2 years now and I still don't trust him and I really don't know why, I ALWAYS get mad/jealous if I see a girl talk to him, or I always want to stalk his twitter, Instagram and Facebook. I just feel so bad that I don't trust him after 2 years

    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 :)

    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...

    Everyone has uncertainty about whom to trust,

    how much to trust, when not to trust, and so forth at one time or another. In fact, every day we make choices about whom and how much to trust, and sometimes we are more willing to trust than at other times. That’s a good thing; a total lack of mistrust would indicate a...

    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
