  1. I have people that I trust and their’s people that I don’t trust. If I can trust somebody than it would be my friends and some of my family. It is hard to trust somebody if they have lied to alot of times and easier to trust if they haven’t lied to you. How do you know if somebody lies to you? If they tell you a diffrent story each time and I have had alot of people that lied to me and I don’t really like liers that much. My family and friends have lies to me so I don’t believe people that much but if you don’t want to be lied to than don’t lie to people. Let other people know that they can trust you and let them know that they dont have to lie to you because they you won’t lie to them.
