"The Fear of Being Alone"
Have you ever dreaded the idea of reaching out to connect with someone; only to find that there is no one around to respond to your emotional needs? The fear of being ignored and left alone, and the perceived notion of being unimportant can be at the core fear of many close relationships. Learn how this fear can be the foundational root of many dysfunctional relationships.
The fear of being alone stems from the experience of being emotionally neglected or alone during early childhood or adolescence. The child or adolescent's inability to express or experience the primary emotional need to develop an emotional connection forms the foundation of the fear of being alone. The experience of feeling ignored, emotionally or physically abandoned, or feeling irrelevant in others' lives has caused many incidents of this fear. These feelings become the source of emotional numbness and the incapacity to express needs, wants, and desires in relationship dynamics. This fear is the foundational basis of dysfunctional relationships as the individual grapples with the pain of feeling alone during youth.
