I still dont trust people

Sometimes I think it is just the way the world is and it is the smart thing to do. Other times, I think maybe it is related to paranoia or social anxiety. I cant trust people to treat me ok. Like people have a really negative attitude towards me, even on here, and I feel like I am just waiting for the time it slips out of them. Do you think I am being paranoid?

No I don’t think your being paranoid. I don’t trust people either.

Possibly sz could be as much what you ARE seeing as much as what you arent seeing. Its hard for me to trust othors as well and they often demand that you do for no reason. Sometimes its harder to believe what you are seeing.

I think it’s okay to trust that a stranger isn’t likely going to go out of their way to do something petty to you. There’s degrees of untrust and some degrees are so out of the ball park they might as well be fantasy.–

@anon98459728 , I can go from naivety to a certain degree of paranoia.The paranoia kicking in when a person I’ve naively opened up to turns out to be a ****…

I don’t really trust people in my town… I trust my friends though (mostly)
Sorry you feel like people on here are negative towards you

I don’t trust anyone at all anymore. Only my family. I’ve felt like Jesus or one of the disciples in that I was betrayed by Judas. Not saying I’m delusional or anything. I just think it’s my illness and possibly warranted given that I was messed with really bad. It’s probably typical. I’m a good guy. I messed up a few times and had problems with my judgement temporarily. I think I got some damage to my brain (SZA) and symptoms of frontal lobe impairment like poor executive functioning. I also have Aspergers.

I struggle as well… however I feel that it may be because I have a negative self image… often times I feel i dont deserve to be treated good so I expect that they’ll see the real me in time and show they dont like me… its a constant battle to say this is anxiety and not the case
