Pity or Condescension?

Philippines
April 19, 2007 7:29am CST
I thought I was weaving some fairytale-like story until now. I thought they pitied me until now. They're a bunch of condescending people. I thought I was talking about something special, but it was a big lie. I thought I was right about my feeling, but they pulled the rag under my feet. I'm not going to trust anyone anymore. I was a big fool to have believed all the lies they spun around me. I was so gullible.

Hi, Whatever it is that bothers you so much, have a break. Take time to rest and ask God for clarity of mind. If others turns you down. You should not turn yourself down. It is not healthy and it is not good.....Have a a rest lady... remember we always have this so called "Back to start." ...HAVE THIS! SELF-ESTEEM GOD'S LOVE HUGS and kisses from your FRIENDS

Jackie, Placing trust in people isn't always the best option but to totally cut others off doesn't mean you won't be gullible. it's just a balancing act between those you can and can't trust. Honestly, you will know people who deserve to be trusted. I'm sorry this has happened, I hope you can grow to trust certain people again because the world would be a colder place without it. Kudos, ~Joey

Well i do not know what the story is about, but i can tell you that i do feel sorry that you feel that way, and got hurt. Remember that you have to stay true to yourself, a lot of people would make you think that they are with you and then betray you, a lot of people will make you feel that they pity you, but all of that does not matter. If this is really important to you and special and you feel that this is what you believe in and want to do, just take all of those peoples reactions and throw them away, and continue with what you believe. It is hurt and maybe it going to be even harder, but keep going, because you are the strongest believer in yourself, and you are the only one that knows where your happiness is. Just go on and be strong.

It hurts a lot when people you trust prove tghemselves unworthy of your trust. Living your life as a constant sceptic, never trusting anyone, always expecting someone to harm or hurt you is not a good way to live however. I hope you will be able to trust people again - just not these ones

Okay Jackie. Sit yourself down, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Then really think about this. I feel you're getting upset over something quite small. Does it really matter, in the end, how people feel about your story? If you believe in it, then that is the most important thing... accept the criticism and tell it to somebody else, who might understand and appreciate it. You've taken a minor fall, but hey... don't stay down there, pick yourself up, dust yourself off and put it all down to experience. You're finding out who your friends are, who are the honest ones and which are just taking you for a ride and humoring you. The rug they pulled from under your feet? Make it your magic carpet in your journey through life. You are encountering lessons and learning from them. Sit on the magic carpet and move on, in the knowledge that if you are in a sitting position, you can't fall again! Be serene, rise above this and put the obstacles to one side. Brightest Blessings.

Excellent response Darkwing. You can't let people dictate whether you trust again or not. You just have to be careful is all of who you trust. Keep faith in yourself and rise above this.
