Have you ever felt like you have recurring themes in your relationships? Like you always seem to date men who keep themselves at a distance or are the jealous, clingy type?
Do you have a hard time getting close to men in relationships? Or do you, yourself, often find that you need a lot of reassurance that he loves you and wants to be with you?
These are signs of common attachment styles we have as adults, based on our experiences with our parents as children.
Had a parent who didn’t show up for you, wasn’t present, or had severe addictions? You may have developed an avoidant attachment style.
Had a parent who didn’t give you the attention you needed? You may have developed an anxious attachment style.
Grew up in a family where your needs were repeatedly met? You likely developed a secure attachment style.
Today I’m diving into ALL of these as well as how they play out in our relationships with men as adults.
Books I recommend in the episode:
