Attachment is a psychological concept that everyone is familiar with. Some parents or caregivers cannot meet the needs of children consistently.
They are sometimes very timely and sometimes slow. Just as parents often argue: the child is crying, and he is still not jealous.
In fact, both options are ok, the most terrible thing is to change and change: after a while, not a while.In the eyes of children, the response of parents is unstable and unpredictable, when children are confused and upset, they do not know how to expect to be treated.
Therefore, many children feel sad and angry, and the solution chosen is to stick to adults.
This is the solution for children who form anxiety attachments to their unpredictable parents.Caregivers’ treatment is a key factor in the formation of infant attachment types, and this effect continues into adulthood.Anxious individuals do not feel love and trust to their partners, but rather an “emotional hunger”.
They want each other to save themselves or make them more “complete”. Although they are extremely eager to be close to people, they are always lacking in self-confidence and believe that they are not worthy of being loved.
Therefore, they always suspect and fear that they do not want to achieve the same intimacy.Anxious people gain a sense of security through adhesion and control.
Therefore, they often use excessive emotional reactions to gain the attention and love of their partners. When they feel pressure, they rely on each other’s care for themselves, rely on the promises made by the other party, and rely on this commitment to build a sense of security. But the results are usually contrary to expectations, and their partners often flee because they can’t stand it.
