Walters’ profound need to explore the darker, unconscious realms, to understand the demons that live there, and ultimately to  nd a way to bring them into balance is what creates hidden enemies in her life. Even the people she counts as friends may harbor some resentment towards Walters because she can’t leave a painful subject alone.
