Fear of Abandonment, of Being Alone

     “The human fear of being alone is the human infant’s fear that all warmth, nurturance, sustenance, safety, and love will suddenly leave it forever and it will, literally, die. The sudden sinking, hollow dread that grips {your} stomach … is the fear of that abandoned infant who, left loveless, will die.”
