Just venting

I have trust issues. Not in romantic relationships but in friendships. I haven't gone that far in life, and I know that this is just the start, but it has been pressuring me for a while now. All my friends whom I trusted always backstabbed me, so I started faking myself. I gave up in making myself happy and started trying to make others happy. It makes me happy. But the doubt of them actually liking me always lies at the back of my mind. I like to think that I have different personalities. When I'm with my family, when I'm with my friends, when I'm with acquaintances and when I'm alone or on the internet. I really tried to avoid having flashbacks or doubting someone but it's always there. I want to stop this from getting worse. I just don't know how.

  • Or you might have a friend who loves you, who's here for you

  • I'd beg to disagree respectfully with the responses below. If you live life with the objective of making yourself happy or even making others happy then you will fail.

    I would suggest that you go out with an attitude of helping others. Service. A smile. A helping hand.

    Now you can't do just that or you can get sucked into helping others all the time. As soon as you feel the other person is using you and they will even if unintentionally then step away.

  • Big mistake making others happy, make yourself happy first. You sound like you might be a teen. FYI all teens do the stupidest s***, including betraying you. I have a rule "If you absolutely don't ever want people to find out about something secret - never tell anyone". It's not you, this happens to many people. These people I call frenemies. Sometimes their jealous, or want to do all the talking, or just mean. Avoid those ones, find a happy medium. Good luck!

  • Agreed, your happiness is all that matters. If your not happy then what's the point in making others happyness come before your own
