Your attachment style is formed when you’re a child. The bond your parents make with you, or lack of one, determines how you experience love in your adult life.
My parents weren’t negligent, but anxiety has always run in my family. I remember my mother always being worried and easily upset, something I can’t look past was most likely passed down to my brother and me.
I have an anxious attachment style when it comes to love—always have. In fact, knowing this information and reflecting on my past relationships, my actions make a lot of sense.
But coming to this realization about myself wasn’t an easy one. It took a lot of deep reflection and reading about attachment theory.
