Anxious Relationship Style
Individuals with this style often have a history of emotionally turbulent relationships, but they dislike being alone. They can feel nervous and insecure about relationships, displaying neediness, possessiveness, mood swings, and oversensitivity. An anxious relationship style means you are reluctant to give people the benefit of the doubt – often interpreting their intentions as negative.
Secure Relationship Style
While the above styles are characterized by unhealthy habits, a secure relationship style allows one to find joy in friendships and an intimate partnership. A person with a secure relationship style can send and receive healthy expressions of intimacy and will draw appropriate and reasonable boundaries when required. They feel secure whether alone or with a companion.
Of course, people with a secure relationship style will have ups and downs like everybody else. However, this overall approach is the healthiest of the four relationship styles.
