Do some people suffering from schizophrenia don’t trust people,because they cannot trust themselve either??

for a couple of years I could not trust myself because I was so fragile and dumb. But now I am feeling better, more stable and stronger. I start to count on myself again. But If trust other people is another issue and I rarely think about it.

That’s great,do you think good medication plays a role or is it truly attitude change??i can’t expect to pull myself up when everything looks bad and depressing for me…I tried to think positively and change a lifestyle or habit,in the end I go back to the baseline or even worst again…

I think it can be a combination of things. Since I’m not diagnosed I can only guess that yes it must be hard to trust other people when your own feelings and thoughts are making it hard to trust yourself. Paranoia may play a part. Unfortunately people can also give you reason to not trust them through lack of understanding. Sometimes not trusting can cause a self-fulfilling prophecy of untrust. You believe it therefor you see it. Sometimes you have to take a leap of faith and put some trust into someone to learn that you can trust them. Sometimes you get hurt in the process.

There are times when I can’t trust my own brain to be my own brain. I got so scattered and torn up. I didn’t trust anyone then, just the grandiose delusions I had.
