Attachment Styles Series: Anxious

An anxious attachment style is rater calm in today’s day in age. It is viewed as one of the “insecure attachment styles”. People who display an anxious attachment style tend to feel insecure in relationships, and constantly seek validation. Those who experience this usually come off as “clingy” in relationships. This attachment style can also be broken up into anxious-ambivalent and anxious-preoccupied. People who have this attachment style may have never learned how to self-soothe as a child leading them to rely too much on one’s caregiver; therefore, the child has problems feeling secure without validation and so on. Seeking professional treatment such as a therapist, counselor, or psychology can help to curb this type of attachment style and help to move you to a more secure attachment style.
