Your posts are inspiring and give me hope.

I have difficulty taking acquaintanceships further into the realm of friendships. I have been hurt by so called friends in the past and thus have some trust issues - even with those I have gotten close to. As a result I tend to remain at arms length. I have numerous aquaintanceships some closer than others. This also allows me some freedom to pull back and withdraw from relationships as my mood, etc, requires.

I am a person to jump in and help acquaintances if need be. I will carry the weight of other's on my shoulders. I will be fiercely loyal. My lack of trust however leads me to question whether I can count on others to do the same.
