In my exe prince, every person is a unique individual. As it isn't clear from what you have shared in this question in regards to both what you've been through, trusting people, and the panic attacks that I am sincerely sorry to hear you have experienced, in my opinion there is always hope in these type of situations in a person's life. I think form what you've asked you feel there is a strong relationship between the panic attacks and your ability to not trust other people. If this is the case, you might want to consider looking at these challenges you are currently dealing with as separate issues, if at all possible, or at least to some extent. That said, there are many ways you might choose to approach the panic attacks, including but certainly not limited to working with a Doctor, a therapist, practicing mindfulness, deep breathing, and other techniques as well. In regards to trusting other people after what you have been through, you may want to consider from many options, as well, including but certainly not limited to taking "baby steps" with a friend or family member that you currently have some level of trust in if possible, as well as journaling about this, and perhaps, again, working with a Doctor or mental health professional that specializes in the challenges you are currently dealing with at this point. Hope this helps, and all best to you in your journey.
Maybe it's not trusting people that you are struggling with but rather the specific people that yo have placed your trust in.
Remember that what you've been through is something that happened in the past. Although past experiences should inform us about future encounters, we shouldn't let it define what future encounters would be like. Therefore, when we meet people, start by envisioning them as a plain piece of paper. Don't let your past experience cause you to see everyone with the word distrust written on the person without even knowing the person at all. If there is nothing that person is doing to cause us to distrust them, then we should trust them.
It is possible. However we must really come to terms with that happened, understand it, see what we can learn from it and our role in it, if any. Trauma, pain and loss is just the worst things in the world, I know, I have them all. But we just need to keep moving forward, it's all we can do.
Sounds like you've been through some pretty bad stuff. Don't rush yourself. Take your time. I'm sure the other person/people will understand. Just breath in deeply and slowly. There's no rush for you to do anything you're not comfortable doing. Take care :)
i'ts always possible to trust in people. we need it. we can't live a life without trusting anyone, or we will risk that noone we'll trust us. you have only to find a really, sincere, awesome person c:
It is ok not to trust everyone you meet, and to rely on your instincts, as this will make you safer. Trust comes with time, it's about taking little steps to give people a chance and to get to know people better so that trust can build. It is possible to trust again, you need to give yourself a chance to meet the right people that you can begin to feel comfortable with.
I do not know what you have been through. But if you feel like you cannot trust anyone else anymore, it must have been something really intens. Maybe you could try to focus on just a few people who you'd like to trust. If you are not sure whether you can trust someone maybe just tell him/her a little lie. Then see if he/she keeps it. If yes, you can probably trust that person.
I am so sorry to hear that you have been through this experience and I am also sorry to hear that you feel like you cannot trust people lovely. You are very strong for even considering trusting about what you have been through. Trust me though, I could find you ten nice people for every nasty one that you meet so I would hate for you to give up hope. There are lots of lovely people around and even though there are a few people who damage us, there will be a team of caring people to repair you again. Keep hope, sweetheart!
You would have gone through a traumatic experience with people that causes the panic attacks. Its good if you could get a counselor/therapist to talk to about your traumatic experience that caused the attacks in the 1st place and they will help figure out a way for you to deal.
The only way to trust another person is to trust yourself. Is it possible? You are the only person who has that answer.
It is possible to trust people, you need to learn to trust yourself first though. Once you are comfortable with yourself and have learned to accept what you've been through, you can trust people but it will probably never come easily.
Not everybody is the same. A lot of people could have done you wrong in the past, and maybe it feels like there are people around you who you can't completely trust, but eventually you will come across somebody who you can 100%. It's not easy, but it is a relief to eventually find that person, and you definitely will!
It is very possible. But it does take some time. You'll get there if you really work on it. Hang in there! :)
It will take time but it’s not impossible. Finding positive a loyal friends is hard but there are some good people out there. They will come when you are ready to meet new people. At the moment you are not ready. First of all try breathing exercises for your panic attacks and just relax, once your body is relaxed YOU will know yourself if that person is worth your trust or not because you will be in that mindset of thinking straight. When someone is stressed and having panic attacks it makes it hard for that person to think straight and then we make mistakes. Once you have found someone who you can trust you will find the panic attacks become fewer and fewer.
