Attachment trauma.

I feel damaged despite the healing that I’ve done. I feel insecure in romantic relationships, they trigger a nervous system response which makes me feel unsafe in relationship. I was abandoned multiple times before I was a teenager, by my mother, by my father, and by foster families. I was emotionally neglected as a child too. I want to feel safe in romantic relationships, but I feel like when I get close to someone my anxiety flares and I either over-invest or completely pull-away and shell-up. I want to feel appreciated, supported, and cared for; I want to feel love and affection and not fear they will leave me – is that too much to ask?
