Ask BR: How Can I Have a Loving, Lasting Relationship When I Believe I Will Always Be Let Down?

I was adopted within my family as a baby.  It all came to light when I was 16.  I'm now 48.  My siblings and cousins seem to hold a grudge against me, because I was adopted and they believe that I had a better upbringing than they did.  I feel I'm paying for the family's decision that I had nothing to do with. I have no trust or faith in anyone, as I believe I will always be let down. How do I stop this pain and actually have a loving relationship that will last?  I am about to get my fourth divorce. I hurt all the time. Thanks.
