Many of us have not grown up in an openly loving environment. We have either been rewarded for our performance or punished for a lack thereof! Perhaps we come from a broken home through divorce or domestic violence and we bring the idea into our christian lives, thinking that God treats us in the same way. This or other conditions that I will list below are often the causes of us feeling, unwanted, abandoned or just rejected by people who are supposed to be our friends . The ones we are close to and should be able to trust.
