She breaks down the four different categories – anxious, avoidant, fearful, and secure – and explores how they shape our behavior and beliefs in relationships. She emphasizes the importance of understanding our attachment style and the impact it has on our interactions with others.
According to Jessica, attachment styles are not fixed states. Healing is always possible, but it requires introspection and self-awareness. She encourages individuals to look inward and recognize their own patterns and wounds. By doing the necessary inner work, anyone can develop a more secure attachment style and form healthier relationships.
Jessica also discusses the role of our nervous system in attachment styles and how it affects our responses to perceived threats. She highlights the importance of self-regulation and the impact of past experiences on our present behaviors. She encourages individuals to explore their triggers and understand that they are awakenings of deeply ingrained patterns.
Furthermore, Jessica addresses the impact of attachment styles in the workplace, noting that power dynamics and codependency can come into play. She suggests that self-awareness is key in recognizing and addressing these dynamics and breaking free from repeating patterns.
Jessica emphasizes the importance of compassion for ourselves and for others. She encourages individuals to seek support and surround themselves with safe relationships in order to heal and grow. By cultivating a sense of self-fulfillment, one can break free from the fear-based behaviors that often accompany attachment styles.
