My biggest fear is the consequence of letting my guard down. It's unfortunate, but I don't trust anyone anymore. In the past, I continually gave people the benefit of the doubt in attempt to be different than those who never gave me a chance. Each time I've done so, it bit me in the ass.
How do I deal with it? I tolerate it. Refusing to trust others on any level inhibits me, sure, but it's better than being stabbed in the back once again.
