It’s become more and more difficult to remain vulnerable, trusting, and open to life in this era of uncertainty, global upheaval, divorce, and disrupted family life. Fortunately, many of us have friends and family members we can count on where we can let down our guard, relax, and be ourselves. But sometimes even here, things can get rough.

We may also begin to doubt our friends, loyalty, and trustworthiness. Without realizing it, we may react to these doubts by pulling away from our loved one in subtle ways.
