What Is Nervous Attachment Style?
What is Nervous or Anxious Attachment Style?
If you or your partner has an anxious attachment, you might feel like you constantly need to be reassured that your relationship is intact. That’s because people with an anxious attachment are afraid of losing their partner, and they constantly seek reassurance that the relationship is working.
Anxious attachments can make you feel desperate to form a fantasy bond in your relationship. Instead of feeling real trust toward your partner, you might feel emotional hunger. You may also look to them to rescue or complete you.
If this sounds familiar, please know you’re not alone: Anxious preoccupied attachment affects nearly 20% of the population. And it’s something I’ve helped a lot of my clients work through in therapy sessions. If you’re ready to take control of this pattern in your relationship, I’m here for you.
Do you feel anxious when your partner doesn’t text you back right away? Do you often feel like your partner is distant and unavailable to you? Do you find yourself getting upset or angry over things that seem small (like the fact that your partner didn’t put the dishes away, or they forgot to call you back)? Are you constantly trying to figure out what they’re thinking or feeling?
If any of these sound like YOU, then I have some good news: you don’t HAVE to live like this!
