About the episode
In this episode hosted by Tia Harmer, Christine said that attachment is some sort of emotional bond between one person and another, is sort of related to interpersonal relationships, and is often also associated with self-compassion.
She also mentioned that one of the significant contributions of a mindful self-compassion approach is that if you begin to meet current challenges, pain, or the waves of earlier traumas or painful histories with kindness and compassion, you can support your own healing. In one aspect, if you really want to be a good parent, you may never have had a good parent or positive parenting experiences, but you can create that for yourself if you can nurture that within yourself so that you can also heal.
The different early attachment styles people get as infants affect their aspects of life. And knowing your attachment style can help you better understand how you interact with others, both now and in the past.
