What You Need To Know About Attachment Theory

Do you find yourself constantly seeking closeness and validation from your friends or partner? Maybe vulnerability makes you super uncomfortable. Or what if you’re someone who feels pretty comfortable with intimacy but you know someone who’s struggling?
