How can you trust people when you have been deceived by others so many times before?

I don't think I can ever trust another person in my life ever again. I have been tricked and deceived so many times in the past, and yet I never seem to learn the lesson that most people aren't trustworthy. What is wrong with me? I'm a good person at heart and I abide the laws and I don't find fault with people. I don't understand why these things always happen to me. Even an online "friend" suffering from spina-bifida stopped writing when I told her that I'm not living in Los Angeles. We weren't special friends, just online friends, so why is she behaving like this? I can't stand all of these!

Dear, we share the same experiences. It has happened to me many times also. I do cry, get angry but what will that do to you? Well, at least you were able to release that heavy thing on your chest. What I do? I think of all the things that has happened and try to learn from it. You can still trust people but you have to be very careful the next time. There's nothing wrong with you. About this girl who stopped writing to you, did you lie to her? Or maybe, she doesn't like people living in LA. There is a big reason behind it. If she doesn't want to write to you again, leave it. There are a lot of people in the world. Since you are only online friends and not special friends as what you have said, why bother and ruin your mood on it. Go ahead, look for other friends. Thare's a lot of them waiting. Alot better than her. Hope this helps. Jen

I don't have any deep philosophical answer. I can only suggest that you think back and consider...those people that haven't deceived you in the past. Do you still know them....and why. Look back on what has been successful in the past and use those as a guideline or tool when trying to trust others in the future.

I understand where you are coming from, I have trust issues also. You might want to try going to counseling to try to figure it out. I did and it helped a little.
