    Idiot That I Am, I Still Do

    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...
