Detachment Styles

  1. Thank you, this is a very interesting post… I am happy to think that (according to this), I detach and attach healthily for the most part.. Great to have tools like this to help us be more self aware. 🙂

    My attachment and detachment style are the same I’m a Dismissive on both (low anxiety and high avoidance). The tables make it easier to see. I think when someone leaves us with no real closure that can make someone as detached and dismissive as me become highly anxious. I think the way the relationship ends can alter your Detachment Style but that’s my opinion based only on my own life experience.

    • I completely agree that the way the relationship ends can impact your detachment style. Just as your partner’s attachment style can impact your own (clinginess and aboidance tend to trigger each orher).

  3. I definitely have spent the past few months ruminating over my ex….

    Why didn’t we have more time together? What’s wrong with me? Why doesn’t he want to give me a chance?

    I have had so many questions and zero answers. I have had him play mind games with me, which has not been easy, and simply just encouraged more rumination on my part.

    Thank you for sharing the table. It put me into perspective. My actions have not been ones that I can be proud of. I have to do my best to just walk away, even if in my mind he could have made me the happiest I have ever been.

    Breaking up sucks!
