Pain and Trust Issues


I found this to be very true for me.
After being molested and raped, I couldn’t feel like I could trust authority figures to protect me and I didn’t trust boys older than I was… I usually only dated younger boys and even married a younger man.
When religious leaders lied to me and invoked fear and guilt, blaming and shaming, I grew to distrust all forms of religion.
When doctors lied to me about my health, and medications, so they could keep a patient under control, I developed huge trust issues with medical personnel.
When friends were only my friends on their terms, I started to question the whole concept of friendship.
