I am awful; I have done awful things and thought awful thoughts.  I can’t trust in anything except the coming punishment that I deserve.

I don’t know what it means to feel trust and probably never will.

I can’t trust anyone after what I have experienced, after what I have done, and after what I have seen.  There is a hole in my heart where trust should be.

If I trust that things will work out and get better, then the coming pain is just that much more upsetting.

I trust what I have in my own hands, in my bank account, what I own, and what I control.

It is better to realize that everyone is out for himself, including me.

I am trustworthy.  The only times I do bad things is when it’s justified.
