    I think I need to mend my habit of trusting

    people so easily. I feel like dumb when people take advantage of it. I have had certain bad experiences because of this. I think its time to change myself a bit for better.

    I trust people too easily,

    and I'm genuinely scared. People can do some scary things once they get you to trust them, and it makes me so paranoid. I just saw the movie, Ex Machina, and it brought this to my attention. In the movie, Ava, a conscious AI, exploits the protagonist's emotions and sexuality to...

    My Cloud Kingdom - Everyone Is Happy And Kind

    It is weird, but most of the time wherever I go, I trust people easily. I think it is important to see other people positively, because that's how everyone wish to be treated. All the stories about people turn into what others say they are makes me realised how detrimental it can...

    Go Figure

    So my daughter's biological dad (whom we'll call Bob) is not the one she calls Daddy.  My husband (whom we'll call Mike) is.  And that is because, for about four years, I let Bob use me and lie to me and leech off of me.  He lived with me...

    I Trust People Fast

    I feel so vulnerable to everyone. If I get along with someone, I will usually tell them a lot about myself, and not just the normal everyday, my favourite colour is.. I like this movie ... etc. I tell them things that have happened in my life that I really haven't known them long...
