What is Anxious Attachment?
Anxious attachment is a concept rooted in attachment theory characterized by a heightened need for reassurance, validation, and closeness from one’s romantic partner. Individuals with anxious attachment tend to worry excessively about the stability and security of their relationships.
This pattern is developed during childhood due to inconsistent caregiving or unresponsive parenting.
How Anxious Attachment Affects Relationships
People with anxious attachment often fear rejection, abandonment, or being unloved, which can lead to behaviors such as clinginess, seeking constant approval, and being overly sensitive to changes in their partner’s behavior.
As adults, these individuals often struggle to trust in the reliability of their relationships, leading to feelings of insecurity and emotional turbulence.
They may constantly seek affirmation of their partner’s love and commitment and any apparent distance or change in behavior is often perceived as rejection or abandonment.
