CAN VULNERABILITY BE HEDGED?


The end of a relationship can bring uncertainty.

Individuals differ in how they respond to it.

Relief, worry about the future, even paralysis through fear of the unknown depends on their ‘tolerance’ for uncertainty.

A ‘vulnerability factor’ contributes most to anxiety disorders, according to Helen Thomson, ’The Agony of Waiting’, New Scientist, 19 October 2019, p43.

In the new satirical fiction novel “Short of Love” by Martin Knox, the central character Tom uses a commodity trading strategy ‘a straddle” to ‘hedge’ his vulnerability to love.

Will this ensure Tom’s tolerance for the uncertainty of love?
