Fear of trusting someone: pistanthrophobia is common amongst many of us and it hardly surprises me because yes people are turning evil and harsh towards the ones who cares.
To be honest, you should count yourself in those lucky ones if there are people who genuinely care for you. I do, but still because of the fear of getting betrayed, i hardly believe people when they say,‘they care’.
I mean the efforts should be noticeable enough and should be confirming to what you are assuring.
Honestly, to be loyal is another thing which people lack these days. I can understand their might be their own reasons for not being loyal and so on but on a serious note if you call someone your friend and assures him/her that you actually care about them , then taking a stand for them at their back is not a big deal. Infact, that is something which confirms to the assurity you give to them about your friendship and more.
Hardly there are people interested in keeping long term friendships, either they end up betraying them or they entre the circle of self centeredness.
This harsh reality restricts the person to trust people easily and that is very much apt!
Talking about getting committed in relationship with someone, pistanthrophobia is justified. A proper committed relationship is where 2 people share a bond of love, joy, sacrifice, responsibility and compatibility. Here, the fear of getting betrayed is very much justified because firstly you don’t expect it. Secondly, you would regret your decision so bad afterwards.
To be loyal is a huge sacrifice and to accept betrayal is like accepting a permanent scar on your soul.
