I Used To Trust People

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 362 People

    Trust is like a mirror.

    Once you clean off the surface, you can see deeper, and with more detail than before. I trusted people, trusted them with my life, only to be betrayed. I've been let down so many times, I didn't think what I've seen could happen, but did happen.. Is anybody really trustworthy?

    for about 8-9 months and everything was good in the beginning. I loved him and I really and truly felt that he loved me too. We were happy and I told him my deepest secrets, I did things that I normally wouldn't have and for the first time in my life I could honestly say that I...

    Some People Dont Deserve To Be Trusted

    Why would u trust someone after all they have ever done is lie to you? Well maybe ur excuse is "they promised they would stop" or "I just have a big heart" or even "they aren't lying they just don't tell whole truths" why should you have to try and make up excuses for these...

    I trusted him completely last year.

    I trusted him with everything I had. This time being back together I'm having problems trusting him. I've been trying to keep them to myself because I'm not sure if it's gut feeling, insecurities from how we ended last time, or maybe even what others have put me through since he...

    Idiot That I Am, I Still Do

    I still trust most people instantly. The few whom I do not trust instantly, never can earn my trust. The only people I don't trust are the ones that give off very scary vibes, and those vibes have never lied to me. I just wish they were more reliable. I wish they would work for...
