In honor of valentines days, lets talk about relationships! Our first experience with relationships begins in childhood with our parents. We learn early on if we can trust others, if it is safe to fail, if someone will be there to catch us and put us back on our feet, if someone will pay attention to our needs, etc. The way our first experiences were shaped sheds light on how we interpret the world and others as adults. This is called “attachment style”. We care about this topic because the difficulties we have in our current relationships with romantic partners, friends, co-workers, acquaintances most likely lead back to the way we grew up in childhood. This article is a great tool to understand different types of attachment styles and how this plays a role in our emotions as well as relationships.
