Each person has a distinguishing attachment style. Be it fearful avoidant to insecure attachment to secure attachment, the attachment style determines the way the person chooses to behave in a relationship. “Recognising insecure attachment styles within yourself is crucial for healthy relationships and personal growth. These patterns, often formed in early childhood, can influence how you connect emotionally.
