Trust No One…

Isn’t it amazing when you can look into a person’s eyes and know that you can have complete faith and trust in them?  You can trust that this person won’t hurt you,

    Sarah, I think it’s perfectly reasonable not to trust anyone completely. Everyone is instinctively weighed down with their own self-interest. (That may be redundant but it’s too late to check) It seems to me the more important issue is how you’re handling it, your awareness that none are completely trustworthy, that is. It sounds as if you’re allowing your awareness to reach debilitating proportions, and I’m suggesting that not trusting anyone – including your children – is perfectly normal. Doesn’t it seem to you that living successfully, or happily is much too situational, and depends on far too many variables to allow people to be trusted in all situations. But who made the decision that this is a lamentable phenomena; it’s merely “normal” given the human animal’s inclination towards greed and self-interested behavior. But I truly don’t feel that it’s any big deal.

    Sarah, it is a bit late and I can’t fully express how sad, but relieved I feel to stumble across this blog! I know exactly what you are experiencing because I have been through similar scenarios. I can’t trust anyone at all! Both of my parents have been lying to me my entire life about my childhood. My father cheated on my mother when I was a teenager and ever since then I made a pact to myself to be better than that. I have never cheated on a woman or physically abused them because I was left with a example of a man I never wanted to be. I love my parents to death and I love them very much despite the fact neither of them were good parents. My father broke every promise he made to me. My mother destroyed my life. I was once very close to putting my trust in someone enough to marry them. I have been cheated on and lied to by those I loved the most. Now I am afraid I will never truly open my heart again to love and put my full trust in someone. I am afraid I will never marry and have kids and be the father I always wanted to be. I am afraid that the best option seems to keep my wall up at all times leaving a barrier that never allows me to be close to anyone ever again. I wish I could trust people, but I believe that day will never come. I have lots of friends I talk to and hang out with, but I can’t trust them to not stab me in the back. I feel I can never fully express myself emotionally because in the end being emotionally vulnerable to someone is sharper than any blade when it works against me. I am left with social anxiety, loneliness and heartache. I choose to trust only myself and the good god above. I put my trust in god that everything will be okay. I am comforted with the thought of reuniting with our creator when my time here is over. I find myself at peace now that I have restored my relationship with god. Oh how great our god is to send his son to spread his word and love for us! Thank you for sharing your story! I wish you the best I am grateful knowing I am not alone in this!

    Proverbs 3:5-6 New International Version (NIV)
    5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;
    6 in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.[a]
