I Only Trust Myself

I don't trust anyone, really.  Especially when it comes to my children. I don't ever let anyone watch my kids for me.  That's one of the biggest reasons why I'm a stay-at-home Mom.  My husband and I don't go out by ourselves.  We either hang out at home or take our 3 kids where ever we go.  It's hard for us to trust people with our kids.  We've had a couple of anniversary dinners with our kids with us on our dates.  We don't let them go over to their friends houses but their friends are always welcome here.  No sleep overs either.  Our family is on the other side of the country and until we move back home, we'll continue to keep our kids close.  My husband says: Only trust someone as far as you can throw them...or something like that.  Well I'm a weakling...I don't trust anyone.  I only trust myself.

I'm writing this because I clicked on the "Get Random" thingy and I felt like this applied to me. I DON'T TRUST TOO MANY PEOPLE is the title of the experience and I wanted to share. No one can persuade me to do anything much less persuade me to trust. I wouldn't say I'm proud that I don't trust people but I am proud of the fact that I'm not a sucker. I'm not miserable because I only trust myself. I'm not on here asking anyone to persuade me of anything because that would be a waste of their time. If you'll notice the little that I shared all had to do with my children. My kids are the most precious people in my life. I'm not a careless mother who dumps her kids on anyone willing to watch them to make a buck. The reason why I'm so protective of my kids is because someone very near and dear to me was sexually abused by babysitters as a child. If I have to second guess everyone who comes in contact with my kids for the rest of my natural life to keep them safe, so be it. I won't let my guard down when it comes to my kids. I only trust myself.

Are you writiing this so that someone might persuade you to trust others? Or are you writing this because you are proud of not trusting others? Or are you a little bit of both?
