I believe it to be true. I have built many emotional barriers over the years to keep me from being hurt but the do tend to keep me separated from others, even family members. I come off as cold and uncaring sometimes; I make jokes to suppress sadness or uncomfortable emotions . So yes, walls work both ways keeping things out;and keeping things in.

There are many walls that either a person or even a country builds.

Choose between “either” or “even”.

Very true and the best example I can think of is Trump’s thick skull.
