Great article. I’ve heard this attachment style also called ambivalent. It’s probably one of the toughest to heal due to the person’s difficulty trusting in the good connection with another.

I struggle with it as well. I often wait for someone who shows up in a lovely way to disappoint me. Then to have my first spouse die — my worst fear came true. He left me, although not on purpose.

Tomorrow’s our 36th wedding anniversary. I miss him so-

Thank you for the great article.
