Very useful information! Most have no idea that their issues stem from attachment problems!

Emma Carpenter MA, MFT (@moderncouplestherapist) I know I’ve been M.I.A. since going on vacation. I didn’t mean to leave y’all hanging . As promised, I’m going to talk about how to heal your attachment. I did it/continue to do it, and so can you . ✨If you can, find a good attachment therapist. Lots of therapists offer sliding scale as well as evening and weekend hours ✨Learn more about your own story. Where did your attachment come from? What is your attachment with caregivers? With past relationship partners? With your current partner? When you date? ✨Read about it! Read Attached by Amir Levine. Follow therapists on social media that post about it. Find therapist blog posts about it ✨Recognize what an attachment reaction is. Is there anxiety? Where does it come from? Is there an instinct to run? What feels scary about staying? ✨Lean into the discomfort. You have to actively do the opposite of what feels comfortable for you. If you’re anxious, take a step back. If you’re avoidant, take a step closer. Breathe through it ✨Communicate! Tell your partner what you’re working through. Let them know when the attachment bond feels threatened or at risk. Let them know your triggers. Ask for what you need. It requires vulnerability, you have to learn to talk about the fears you have ✨Practice compassionate self talk. Talk to your anxious or avoidant inner voice. The voice that tells you to cling harder or run faster. It may be your inner child speaking. Let them know you appreciate it trying to protect you, but it’s okay and you got it. Be gentle with yourself and the way you speak to yourself. Have empathy for that inner child. Learn to be a good parent and partner to yourself ✨Keep working. It will be a lot of work at first. There’s so much to learn, so many new things to practice. It can feel overwhelming and impossible at times. Don’t give up. It happens in baby steps. Acknowledge those steps and watch them grow . If you’ve worked to heal your attachment, or if your an attachment therapist, share your tips and tricks for healing below! 73 13 12:54am 07/12/2019
