Your Question

I dont feel like I can trust anyone anymore Alex


Hey there, welcome to Ask Alex,
First off, we just want to say that it takes a lot of courage to open up about feelings of mistrust. It sounds like you’re going through a tough time right now, and we want you to know that you’re not alone. Feeling like you can’t trust anyone can be really isolating, but it’s important to remember that there are people who care about you and want to support you.
It’s completely normal to feel this way, especially if you’ve been hurt or let down in the past. Trust is something that takes time to build, and it’s okay to take things slow when it comes to opening up to others. It might help to start by confiding in someone you feel comfortable with, like a trusted friend, family member, or even a counsellor.
Trust is a two-way street, and it’s important to surround yourself with people who respect and support you. If you’re struggling to find someone you can trust, know that there are resources available to help you deal with these feelings. Childline is always here for you, whether you need someone to talk to or just a listening ear. You can contact us anytime, day or night, and we’ll be here to support you in any way we can. You can contact us by freephone 1800 66 66 66 or Live Chat at We are confidential, non-judgmental, open 24/7, and always here for you for any reason, any time.
Take care of yourself, and remember that it’s okay to reach out for help when you need it. You’re stronger than you think, and you deserve to feel safe and supported.
