  5. Quotes from the book

In adulthood, close relationships for such people are usually riddled with conflict and lack the usual logic, as they simultaneously seek closeness and try to maintain distance. Not surprisingly, the anxious-avoidant type lacks the warm and comforting feeling of intimacy and the healthy sense of self-sufficiency. nine0003

Self-kindness The name speaks for itself. People who have developed this quality in themselves are gentle with themselves when they go through pain, failure, or chaos. Instead of getting angry or criticizing themselves in such circumstances, they show themselves understanding and participation. At the same time, they do not just want to receive short-term pleasure, but strive to be healthy and happy in the long term.

In a relationship, it is important that partners are not far from each other and at the same time do not depend on each other. This state can be called a mutual connection - when partners expect care and support from each other, while feeling like independent people.

August 5, 2022


Do you often feel that your partner is emotionally withdrawing from you, worried that he will leave you? Do these thoughts seize you with despair, do you have a desire not to let go of your partner (basic panic)? Have you noticed that you protest against being left alone? What examples of protest behavior can you give? Protests often backfire, making people even more upset. Describe how you felt after each of the above situations. Have your protests caused more frustration? Have you suffered from feelings of helplessness, worthlessness, or uselessness? Think about the connection of these feelings with your type of attachment and protests. For some people, overly emotional states provoke destructive behaviors such as smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, or overeating. Do you tend to behave like this when you are trying to deal with emotions? Does it bother you a lot? How does your panic over being alone (if you are experiencing it) affect your relationship? Do conflicts arise over trust, or are you - intentionally or subconsciously - unable to relax and enjoy your partner's company? nine0003

Over time, they learn to deactivate their attachment system, do not try to establish contact with their parents or get close to anyone. Subsequently, such children maintain a distance in relations with their parents. nine0003

For example, fear of rejection may cause a person to avoid clarifying conflict situations or not expressing an opinion different from that of a partner. Anxiety sometimes absorbs to such an extent that a person is unable to look at the world (or at their relationship) from the position of a partner.
