This probably refers to the sort of response we sometimes have of being easily hurt by situations or peoples remarks or actions; could also mean we feel someone we know is very prickly or easily offended or irritated; memories which create pain or irritation; a vulnerable part of oneself which easily withdraws, but can react by hurting others.
But in fiction hedgehogs are often depicted as rather forgetful and rural characters who are slightly short-sighted and having a very personal view of the world.
Useful questions are:
Am I feeling a need to withdraw from being in contact with others?
Is someone, or am I, being ‘prickly’ or easily irritated?
What defences do I use to protect myself?
