Love is an interesting topic. Don’t you agree?
Who do you love?
Who loves you?
Do you like to be close to the people you love?
Can you feel comforted by them? If they comfort you, can you feel soothed?
“Attachment is the deep, recurring, reciprocal, and biologically based connection created between babies and primary caregivers.” – Myrna Martin
Did you know that the attachment relationship holds our beliefs about:
Our safety in the world
Our parents’ ability to protect
Our sense of inherent value
