I think one of the things that my anxiety does the most is make me very skeptical of the people around me. Then I feel like they might think I am judging them or racist or something. It’s not that. I act the same way to everyone. Doesn’t matter the race or gender. I am very non trusting. It sucks.
But then again…It keeps me kind of sheltered because I am already protecting me myself from being taken advantage of or mistreated. You see when someone shows me who they truly are…I believe them. I don’t think that maybe they were wrong or maybe they’re changing. I believe them for who they truly are.
I know people who are extreme manipulators… So they’re the kind of people that I keep at a distance. I trust them about as much as I could fly like wonder woman.. Now I am no superhero… I cannot fly…Therefore, I don’t trust them. Who would want to trust someone who manipulates them? Especially if they are repeat offenders. Don’t trust everything you see… even salt looks like sugar. And those two items could not be more opposite.
