    Once Bitten, Twice Shy.

    Yup, I have had my share of people in my life that I have opened up to, only to be let down and disappointed by them.Once a confidence is broken I never forget.Trust does not happen over night.It is like an Oak tree. It takes much time to grow and flourish.Yet, it only takes a...

    And Sometimes Even After I Do Have A Reason Not To.

    To Trust Or Not to Trust

    I trust until given a reason not to. It's taken me a lifetime to get here. I used to belong to the "No One Is Trusted Until They've Proven Themselves" Group. When someone hurts us we often close down in a hopeless attempt to prevent future pain. I did, until I realized...

    She Trusted Me

    Fear is self indulgent and destructive... She trusted me... She was open... I held back... She shared... I closed off... Now she is gone... She said, she doesn't trust me...  You never know what you have until it is gone... "Where there is fear there is no...
