socially connected enough...

extended family is complicated....
work and money and power and powerlessness and...
Complicating our experiences is that when our primal brains are still waiting all the time to help us fight or flight so that we stay alive.
Under stress, the primal brain is where your thoughts and feelings are coming from and it is in those times that you say and/or do exactly what is not most beneficial for achieving what it is that you truly desire.
Fact: The brain does not reach full adulthood until age 25.
Fact: No matter how old you are, your primal brain is alive and thriving and can be ruining your experience of your life. Under stress, no matter how old you are, you react with anger, tears, destruction, estrangement and isolation.
