Our expert says:
We don't all have large numbers of friends - people who do, often are not especially close to their many "friends" ; and having a few closer friends is perfectly normal. You don't even need to open up to your closest friend about everything that worries you - some people do and others don't. But if there are a numbert of things troubling you, you do need and deserve someone you can discuss this with - either a friend of family member, or even a counsellor.
Maybe inded your experiences ealier in life of the troubles in your own family have made you more cautious than many others.
Personal counselling could help you to feel more confident and able to trust appropriately
