They have a strong need for connection, contact. But often they have lost it or never had it. Their parents have been absent, physical lyand or emotionally. They can be maltreated, beaten, sexually abused and left alone.
They feel sad and alone, estranged from their family, losing their family. They can be excluded from society for being refined, artistic, a bit strange with normal people. Sometimes there has been one person that gave them warmth, like a mother in a cold world, in a war. Sometimes they have nobody to give comfort. Then they have a tendency to withdraw into themselves, to create a fantasy world that is smooth, soft, warm and loving.
