r partner as possible… fear a distance is developing, we seek to be as close to and involved with our partner as possible. However, by doing so, the fear of distance becomes even more real and our critical inner voice promises us that our neediness is annoying/upsetting our partner.
I've done this in the past. Sometimes I still do it in my current relationship and I have to stop for a second and process my feelings. The more clingy I get, the more I feel like I'm being annoying, the more clingy I get. It's a vicious circle that just ends up with me being actually annoying. *sighs*
Thank you for this article, I've thoroughly enjoyed reading it.
