Hi Aladdin, how we view other people and the world can be linked to how secure your early attachment with your parents was. It’s possible that you had insecure attachment and therefore you don’t easily trust people now. Another thing to consider is that maybe you fear getting close……..in case it leads to abandonment or rejection? Staying distant could be a defense mechanism, protecting you from potential hurt. Close interpersonal relationships are important for our sense of wellbeing. Try to let go of fears that hold you back. Fear is usually irrational. Ask yourself, what are you fearing and can you face that fear by taking some chances?
