people weren’t born with trust issues.
they go through lies after lies from those who claim they won’t be dishonest. a person develops trust issues after facing so many lies, feeling so much pain; it truly does make one difficult to believe anything, even when they aren’t being lied to.
it’s even more difficult to trust again. people are unsure what to trust, who to believe. they’re afraid to put effort in trusting anybody. until they are proven that they aren’t being deceived.
