Unraveling Trust

It has come to my attention that you are not a truthful person and hence cannot be trusted.

I fear that everything you have told me is nothing but a lie as I do not know what to believe.

You say one thing and then end up doing another. A is your belief, but B is who you worship.

I willingly want and wanted to do something nice for you but rebuked me.

In the end, I still did it even though I wasn't aware of my actions then.

Manipulated, shocked, angry, sad, rebuked, and many more feelings I'm having right now.

My mood swing is in turmoil. I'm on a catastrophic circus parade, a deathtrap rollercoaster ride.
