Gretchen Lawson: In the midst of feeling pain, it can often feel like I'll never be able to trust someone again. Especially when someone has violated that trust, when someone we have trusted has taken advantage of us and mistreated us and abused us. There is hope that through processing the abuse, through time and healing and recovery, that you will be able to take steps toward trusting someone. Give yourself time.
