Fear of abandonment can come from childhood loss or neglect as a child, especially if it is more emotional.

Brain development is the process of creating, strengthening, and discarding connections among the neurons. The growth of each region of the brain depends largely on receiving stimulation. By not attending to that stimulation, your body can't function properly.

The remedy to fear of abandonment in your relationship is to work on exercising that "attachment muscle," allowing yourself to become more vulnerable and open with your partner.

There are 4 different kinds of parenting styles that can lead to your child feeling worthless or defective.

  • Authoritarian parents: they want their children to obey rules but have little time to listen to their child's feelings or needs.
  • Permissive parents: They are too laid back and may let children "fend for themselves," making children feel they are not worthy of their parent's time.
  • Narcissistic parents: They feel as though the world and their children revolve around them, placing their own needs and desires above those of their children.
  • Perfectionist parents: They always think their children need to do better, making their children feel inadequate even after accomplishing something good.
