Are You Avoiding Your Partner’s Anxiety And Insecurity?

Dealing with chronic anxiety can be challenging. But anxiety, like almost everything else in life, is usually not managed in isolation. Close relationship partners, such as close friends and romantic partners, often play a role in managing one’s anxiety. My research has examined how people cope with having a chronically anxious friend or romantic partner. Typically, the examination is of a specific type of anxiety that psychologists refer to as “attachment anxiety,” which involves chronic worries about being unloved, rejected or abandoned by others. Attachment anxiety is similar to social anxiety and separation anxiety disorder . All of these anxieties deal with inter-related relationship concerns of being negatively evaluated, rejected, and abandoned by others.
