We, as Scorpios, tend to be honest about our faults excluding a few that define our darkest and most painful corners of our souls. We are distrusting at the slightest change in behavior, we fear heart break and love in general, and we are self sacrificial to those we love and are loyal to no matter how nonsensical it is to be so. We have lingering questions in our mind that lead us to being paranoid and often distancing ourselves in an attempt to
hurt before we can be hurt. No doubt Scorpio children are loyal and have passion that can not be measured and there is very little we would not do for those we have devoted our hearts to, and this is brilliant, but it is also dangerous. There have been an innumerable amount times where I personally have been loyal to an extent of a total disregard for my own feelings and the reality that the sentiment is unlikely to be returned. And because of these things we are distant and difficult but once these barriers are destroyed we are loving and devoted to an extent that cannot be described or subdued.
With regards to your post about being bullied, I was the same. I’ve read in the past that Scorpios, as children, are often the most trusting and open-hearted of the star signs. But, as with all things, people take advantage and that’s what leads the Scorpio to become closed off and suspicious of everyone, the open hearted star sign becomes the scariest one as a form of defence :(
