One of the pieces of the puzzle of real life, as well as fiction characters, is understanding how someone interacts with another person in terms of attachment. Until recently, while I understood that I reacted certain ways, I did not understand attachment.
Enter into my reading pile – Attached by Amir Levine, M.D., and Rachel S.F. Heller, M.A.
According to the authors, a person belongs to one of three types of attachment: anxious, avoidant, and secure.
With this knowledge, not only can I recognize myself and guess others, and I can work on healing certain attachment style characteristics at times. Many times my attachment style causes more difficult interactions with those that I want to enjoy time spent.
A bonus to be able to heal my own attachment style, as I work on determining whether my main character will have a secure attachment style, or needs to work through one of the other types.
What I appreciated most about the authors’ engagement of attachment learning is that they provided ways to understand and heal for healthier relationships. I view this book as a benefit for recognizing my low level of reactions with friends, family, and other individuals who are in my circle. Well worth the read time to gain another way to enjoy my healing journey.
