The expectation that the need for safety, empathy, respect, etc will not be met with any kind of predictability.

  maladaptive coping 


Puts on a false “persona” to join a group but still feels different and alienated.

most of their time alone.


Becomes part of a group but stays on the periphery.

I don't belong anywhere.

No one understands me.

If I disappeared tomorrow, no one would notice.
