Have you ever stopped to think about the impact that your upbringing has on your adult relationships?
I hadn’t either. That is, I hadn’t thought about it until I began hitting bumps in the road in the early days of dating my husband. I didn’t realize that the avoidant attachment style I had developed as a child (after losing my dad to cancer when I was younger), was manifesting itself in this relationship.
It didn’t occur to me that the last man I loved and was extremely close to was suddenly gone one day.
It didn’t occur to me that I was afraid of that same thing happening to me in my relationship with my husband.
Today we’re talking to an attachment expert, and wow is it an eye-opening interview. Today, you’ll meet Silvy Khoucasian.
Silvy has a Master’s Degree in Psychology (Marriage and Family Therapy) and has dedicated herself to helping individuals and couples heal from trauma, create healthy emotional boundaries and establish real and lasting connection within their relationships.
We hit 2 incredibly impactful topics:
How we develop our attachment style & how it impacts our adult relationships
The importance of setting boundaries, beyond just boundaries with our time…and how to do it.
This is one of those episodes that is jam packed with tactical value that you can implement in your life today. I absolutely can’t wait for you to meet Silvy Khoucasian!
