Trust Issues

Trust Issues

Dear Youth Ambassadors,

I’m having problems trusting people.  Like, when they tell you things they don’t really mean.  I’m always being lied to.  I don’t ask anyone anything and I stay to myself.  I don’t let anyone know if I need to talk to anyone.  If I am upset, I put my phone down and go to sleep. I don’t understand how I can trust anyone.  Can you help me?

Sincerely,

Trust Issues


Dear Trust Issues,

I know exactly how you feel.  In the past I’ve trusted the wrong people and got my heart broken, because they didn’t turn out to be the person I thought.  And now, when anyone new comes into my life, I hesitate to let them in, because I am too scared to trust people.  The people in this world are so unpredictable.  You never know when someone is going to wake up one day and decide to leave you.  My advice to you would be to take your time to get to know somebody.  If they seem worthy of your trust, then trust them.  If there are signs that this person is temporary, then don’t get your hopes up.  I’d say put your trust in God.  He’s the only one who won’t let you down.

Sincerely,

Your Empathetic Friend


Dear Trust Issues,

I feel the same way.  Sometimes I feel like I don’t have anybody. But, sometimes you have to pray on it and hope everything will be ok.  When you feel like you have somebody to talk to you don’t know if you can trust them or not but you have to have faith in people.  Just go with the flow in life and get on with your life.   Keep your head up.

Sincerely,

An Understanding Friend
