Humans naturally form bonds with those closest to them when they are younger, such as caregivers. However, stress, broken trust, or other adverse experiences within the relationship can cause what is known as attachment wounds. Unhealed attachment wounds can wreak havoc on a person’s personal life and interpersonal relationships even years after the trauma or instability occurred. By understanding what attachment wounds are and how to heal them, avoided traumas can be healed, and peace can be brought to those struggling.
To understand the impact of attachment wounds, it is first essential to identify the four attachment styles. Each style is different, but they can impact your life in similar ways:
Unresolved trauma can result in attachment wounds, which can have several adverse effects on interpersonal relationships. Expected consequences include low self-esteem, depression, separation anxiety, and unusual independence. Some individuals also experience intimacy disorders, sex addiction, love addiction, and various relationship issues. Going to treatment to heal your trauma is the best way to resolve these issues and get you back on track to the life you’ve always wanted to live.
Attachment wounds can be difficult to heal as most people avoid discussing previous traumas. However, learning how to communicate your pain openly and what needs are not being met is the best way to navigate healthy relationships.
