Thanks so very much Jack!! This system means our brains are constantly checking and looking for the support of our partners. Its very frustrating because my partner is a great person I just feel sometimes his life is too busy for me, when really its just me not being independent. At least care enough about yourself to let the right kind of support in so that you can get outside that limiting box of your perceived reality and have a fresh, new and much more hopeful perspective, so you can start to really get those needs met. Time to find someone else!! What changes do I need to make to get me to? Learn to pace yourself and always take small steps in the beginning. Just before you open your mouth to ask the question or to assert control over your partner, just stop and see if you could hold back. Will the two of you stay together or will it end after a few months? It can be nerve-wracking not knowing how a certain connection is going to unfold, but it's also exciting! If the person is making you feel like you're asking for too much, but you know you're not being excessively needy, then maybe it's the other person who has a problem.

Sometimes all that is required is for the needy partner to acknowledge that they are putting strain on their relationship and to make efforts to avoid such behavior. It was probably draining, off-putting and exhausting, and it probably did not increase your respect or enjoyment. It was that I was needy and always relaying on her to make me calm and happy. Coach Jack was able to identify the issues with my marriage that I've been struggling with finding. If the love is real he will appreciate the change Louis, This is coming from a guy.
Once there is a commitment established or emotional investment many people start to relax and gradually stop putting in the same type of effort to make their partner's happiness a top priority. Many people who are anxious as adults were also anxious as kids. To understand the effects, recall the last time you encountered someone who was seeking your approval. So the needy one is quick to placate, to soothe, to fulfill the desire of the other. She said she still loved me, but there was somebody else better out there for me. Another example would be that people who enjoy their job come across as non-needy, especially while on the job because they are channeling their mind's hyperactivity through their job.

Fear of loss is what you must get rid of if you want to stop being needy. I hope I was able to help!! Also, the needy partner can learn to be more independent. Keeping tabs on how often you get to spend time together will create trouble in your relationship. Are you afraid your partner will not be there for you? As the above suggests, maintaining a balanced social and professional life, while reflecting and critically analyzing your behavior are keys to avoiding being clingy in your relationship. Some of our partners will want to spend most of their time with us. Accepting how you feel in the moment without passing judgment on yourself.
However, others get into the same pattern of being clingy again and again, continuing to push people away with their behavior and potentially good relationship go south for the same reasons over and over. I find myself in an interphase of both avoidance and secure. I could feel the frustration emit from her from just being in my presence. I would send her text call her she would respond once awhile she would answer her call and would tell me she still loves me it just she needs to find herselfand never want to be put in that situation anymore and that I need to work on my self. His only concern is just playing video games literally every second he has.
