or ones with friends, spouses, and family, they all
have their ups and downs. During times of stress some individuals
look for support from loved ones. They may unintentionally overwhelm
their family and friends with their problems. Meanwhile, others
push those they love away when life get rough. They may blame
people around them for their struggles. These relationships
might become tainted by lies, deceit, and secrets.
