In part 4 of our series on attachment styles, we’ll take a look at the Disorganized/Fearful-Avoidant attachment style. Folks with this attachment style tend to waver between the traits of both anxious and avoidant attachment depending on their mood and circumstances.
In today’s post, we’re going to focus on the anxious/preoccupied attachment style. For adults with an anxious attachment style, the thought of living without a partner (or being alone in general) causes high levels of anxiety. Often people with this attachment style have a negative view of themselves while having a positive view of others.
