Relationships between people are disturbed by violence, domination and egoism. They have the idea that people are principally bad and they cannot be trusted. The love aspect is hidden under problems and neurotic aspects of people.
This often is the result of a youth where there were many quarrels, fights, beatings by parents, screaming and yelling. The family stayed together because underneath there is still love, but the love is difficult to see. There is little attention and care, little love and warmth shown. And when it is present it easily gets ridiculed, labelled as weak and soft. So they get the idea that everyone has to fight for his own place, his job and money. In society this idea is put forward as the survival of the fittest, the world as a jungle where everyone fights for himself against the rest.
