i always think that people always have other intentions.it’s like i always feel suspicious to them even though they haven’t done anything to me yet. because of that i never really open up or even talk to some people fearing that they secretly hate me...

first of all, you should know that is a very normal feeling. it usually happens when you've developed trust issues due to some damaging event. it's okay to feel that, as long as you don't let that fear control you. being suspicious or not letting your guard down are mechanisms of self-defense, things you do to protect yourself from a possible deception. however, if you let it hold you down, you won't be able to reach your full potential and it'll impair the way you see others and even yourself. try to understand that what you're feeling (even though it's valid and real) does not correspond to reality itself. your mind is tricking you into not letting your guard down and it's depriving you of some nice experiences. nevertheless, trust issues can be a major pain in the ass. they'll haunt you down on your lowest and even on your highest. that is something you have to change, but you have to be ready to work on it. if you want to talk a little more about it, you can try to open up with me and we'll walk it through.
