Book Overview

Has your romantic partner called you clingy, insecure, desperate, or jealous? No one wants to admit that they possess these qualities; but if you find yourself constantly on the alert, anxious, or worried when it comes to your significant other, you may suffer from anxious attachment, a fear of abandonment that is often rooted in early childhood experiences.

In Insecure in Love, you'll learn how to overcome attachment anxiety using compassionate self-awareness, a technique that can help you recognize your negative thoughts or unhealthy behavior patterns and respond to them in a nurturing way--rather than beating yourself up. You'll also learn how insecurity can negatively affect healthy dialog between you and your partner (or potential partners) and develop the skills needed to stop you from reverting back to old patterns of neediness and possessiveness.

If you suffer from anxious attachment, you probably know that you need to change, and yet you have remained stuck. With compassionate self-awareness, you can successfully explore old anxiety-perpetuating perceptions and habits without being overwhelmed or paralyzed by them. By understanding the psychological factors at the root of your attachment anxiety, you will learn to cultivate secure, healthy relationships to last a lifetime.

If you're ready to stop getting stuck in the same hurtful relationship patterns and finally break the cycle of heartache, this book can show you how to get the love you deserve--and keep it

   A God-send
I really love the way this book is written, I really love the way this book is written. Having been in a series of relationships where my verbal attachment style related fears were exacerbated by anxious preoccupation with verbal abuse, i really appreciate the fact that this book is so compassionately written. I am learning more about myself without feeling bad about who I am. Is incredibly informative and yet validating and reassuring, which I really need in my life right now. I'm really grateful that I came across this book at this time in my life.

   so so
Good treatment, but a little rambly and hard to follow at times. The organization could be clearer and more direct. Good content, so-so execution.

   An awesome book
OMG! I am so happy that I bought this book! It helped me understand so much better myself. I knew that I was destroying my marriage because I could not trust myself. I thought I could trust my intuition, but by doing so, I was sabotaging that what I held so dearly to my husband. I would recommend this book to anyone who has problems with trust and self-love. I am by no means possible, but I know it is fixed and I see daily glimpses of change. Leslie Becker-Phelps, thank you so much.

   She gets it.
If you were given access to my Amazon purchase history, you would find numerous self-help books. This is probably one of the best, if not the best I ever read. If you have been a shy, insecure person, you need to read this book. She'll explain to you how you got this way, which is part of the healing process. There are also tons of exercises to help you bring change in your life. It is not magic - it takes work on your part. When you are ready for change, the tools are there.

   Want to be certain you're really messed up? Read this book!
Full disclosure : I read the first 3 chapters only. From reading the sample for the book, I thought this might really help me understand more of the root cause of my relationship anxiety. I might be able to be less anxious in the future by understanding and suggestions. But when I really got into the book, I found that their data and conclusions sound more like if you're an anxious attacher, you have little hope for a secure and happy relationship. Later in the book they become more positive and helpful, but from the first few chapters I felt like a piece of crud who had no hope of ever being secure in a relationship! No thank you, No. There are also other supportive books that actually help.
