How Can You Ever Trust Anyone?
An Autobiographical Narrative
I felt as though my heart had been ripped out of my chest and my lungs were shredded into ribbons. I stared in shock at the tiny little pathetic screen of my cell phone that delivered the message that changed my life forever. I suppose that I always knew what would happen. Humans can’t be trusted, no matter what they tell you or how they act. They always smile and lie through their teeth, then they turn around and stab you in the back. You think that people could change or that they’re different and they won’t hurt you, but you’re wrong. No matter how hard you try, every single person on this planet can hurt you. And there’s nothing you can do to prevent it.
In all actuality, I had begun to believe what I was being told and what I so ignorantly thought myself. It had all begun back at Eighth Grade Graduation. Well, to be honest, everything started in seventh grade when I finally let my guard down and let my heart be taken by some intriguing stranger. I was a little more than casually interested in this young and foolish boy and I now understand that that is a mistake that I will never make again. Any and all of my affections were taken and crushed into the ground by a rude, snotty teenager whom should not be trusted.

Some people believe that you need lots of friends to feel loved, but I have found that I only need one friend to appreciate the beauty of friendship and wonderful complexity of life. I learned that one word, one smile, just one person can change your entire outlook on life. You truly only need one friend to get you through all of your troubles. The joy that you can find in one simple friendship is absolutely astonishing. The best thing about this experience is the very fact that I will always remember this throughout my entire life and it can be applied to so many things that will most likely happen. I will always remember that only one person, one simple person can make the single most important difference in this entire universe.
