  • You know what I've noticed?

  • Every time a girl compliments another girl's piece of clothing,

  • We always respond with where we got it from and how good of a deal it was.

  • Thanks! I got it from a thrift store for five dollars.

  • Thanks! Anthropologie. On sale.

  • Thanks! My friend did a clothing swap so I got it for free.

  • But anyway. That has absolutely nothing to do with the video at all.

  • I just thought that it was pretty funny.

  • And now you're gonna notice just how often it happens.

  • But onto why you're potentially ruining your chances at happiness!

  • I've been reading a plethora of psychology books this year,

  • specifically those focused around the issues of relationships, how we attach,

  • and the science behind emotional connectivity.

  • And one thing I've found incredibly fascinating is that there are two main fears

  • that show up over and over again around love.

  • The first one is the fear of abandonment.

  • Ding ding ding! Does that sound familliar?

  • It definitely does for me.

  • Fear of abandonment looks like:

  • Hi! I know I just met you, but now I'm attached.

  • Please don't leave me because it will just devastate my life.

  • I'll stay with you no matter how unhealthy this relationship gets.

  • I am now clingy and demanding!

  • Because I'm totally insecure about the natural space that has evolved over time in our relationship

  • And I'm gonna overreact to and overthink everything.

  • The second is the fear of engulfment.

  • Your love and affection makes me simultaneously feel like I'm on fire and drowning.

  • I desperately want love, but I'm afraid that loving means losing myself and my freedom.

  • You're too close, I need you to back up.

  • Still too close.

  • Keep going.

  • And sometimes we can have both of these fears

  • depending on the dynamics of our relationships. Yay! [kids cheering]

  • And talking to my therapist about my fear of abandonment

  • He said that the number one thing one can do to be more secure in their relationships

  • Is to build self reliance.

  • To know that these fears are triggered by the traumatising death in my past,

  • as well as patterns of physical and emotional unavailability from my parents.

  • Fun stuff.

  • As always, awareness of why you're acting the way you're acting is the first step

  • And slowly but surely cultivating parts of yourself that disallow those fears to be triggered

  • until they no longer hold power over you.

  • It's just so much fun. Growing is the best.

  • But he did say that all of our fears come from who we were as children.

  • And that,

  • which goes into the three attachment styles that we developed

  • based on our early relationships with our parents or caregivers.

  • that I connect with the people in my relationships.
