With all the abuse I have endured in my lifetime, I have bui

With all the abuse I have endured in my lifetime, I have built up a fortress around my heart, become jaded, wary, cynical and isolate. This is not a great alternative. But I just do not know if I can ever trust anyone again. I want out of my 'prison' I have put myself in, but I just don't know how to let down the walls and just start trusting anyone again, in a relationship sense. Anyone else like this? Any advice? Just saying 'trust someone again' is easier said than done...

I say, once your trust has been sliced to utter pieces, that learning to trust again feels like learning to fly... feels impossible. However, choosing who and why you have future relationship is key. I say trust is earned at this point, slowly and to always watch action over words. Just my thoughts.. I feel your pain.
