Pathological Lack Of Trust
Yes it's a lack of faith to some extent. If your experiences have shown you that you cant put your faith in people, if youve been betrayed, then eventually I think this can happen to anyone over time but even more so if you're the cautious type.
My trust is earned at this point. Virgo influence, Pluto influence, Neptune influence being fooled once too many times I dont know but its made me paranoid.
*Edit: I am not saying it's a good thing either as I know it makes relationships more challenging. Lack of trust doesn't exactly allow love to flourish, at least, not very quickly.
I think too that there are people with a pathological abundance of trust.
Yes, I have met one person like that. Here is his chart.
Really got the lot.
Our sense making institutions are under attack. The means by which we learned what is really happening (government, media and academia) have been corrupted thouroughly, as evidenced by the popularity of the 2+2=5 meme. Dissenting opinions and inconvenient truths are no longer allowed and witch hunting those with the temerity to voice them is endemic. It's the witch hunt of people who don't tow the ever-moving line, that produces a good deal of our lack of trust. For example The Biden admin is now firing people who have smoked pot in the past.....but ignoring Kamala's admission of the same "crime". It's that kind of thing that makes one not trust anyone. What stupid thing did I say or fail to say? What will be held against me in the future? Yah lack of trust makes sense in those circumstances.
Sad, it can be partly trauma! ?
