Just for fun, I thought I'd create a thread where anyone can post quotes, memes or jokes that seem relevant to attachment theory, whether directly or indirectly, or make you think of a particular attachment type. Here are some to get started (I have some I like more but have to figure out how to post them).
"Someone disappearing on you doesn't reflect your worth, it reflects their fear of being seen." –Baggage Reclaim.
"The guarded heart still yearns for connection, it's merely cloaked in justified vigilance–a shield that intends to protect, armor that's been kiln-fired after past shatters and traumas. The guarded heart is not cold, 'crazy' or cowardly; it's understandably cautious. Do not judge a guarded heart in yourself or others; instead seek to provide it the love it needs to safely and gently reopen." –Megan J Bruneau.
Some posts that may be relevant for some of you (and some quotes in the way makes me think about the attachment of so many famous and brilliant people). Sometimes I'm feeling doubtful or vulnerable and their quotes makes me thing a lot about my current train of thoughts . Sometimes it's not about attachment at all, but a lot of times about connection to others and ourselves.

I thought this was an interesting one when it comes to the idea of authenticity. Maybe it is bad advice if you're trying to go no contact, but I also think a lot of attachment challenges could improve if people did some of these more of the time... (for the life of me I can't figure out how to embed this as a graphic)
