I can’t make myself vulnerable, you might hurt me. You always hurt me, that’s why I don’t trust you.
You want me to be honest with you, but if I am honest, and you get upset, you will say I am attacking you. So I don’t trust you.
Since I don’t trust you, I am afraid because I don’t know what you will do. You can do anything. That’s what I’m afraid of, because I don’t trust you.
And around and around we go in this insane circular dance because there is no trust between us anymore. If we don’t have trust, what do we have?
All the love in the world can’t fix the crippling fear that takes hold, at the worst possible moment, when trust is dead.
