EP 31 Understanding Avoidant Attachment Behaviours

APPLE | SPOTIFY

When you possess an avoidant attachment style, you might find that your voice grows louder in moments of distress, and you may become critical or demanding. This tendency can often lead you to focus predominantly on the negatives within your relationship, making it difficult to recognize positive aspects unless the relationship ends. Interestingly, these behaviors are often subconscious strategies aimed at creating a sense of safety, yet they can inadvertently distance you from your partner. This may leave you questioning why you react so and wondering if something is fundamentally wrong with you. It's important to understand that there is nothing wrong with you. Your behaviors are adaptations from your childhood experiences, which can be addressed and healed. If you ever feel perplexed by your actions and reactions, I encourage you to listen to this episode. Enjoy! Jen
