Even Me
Feel Emotionally Manipulated?
Show Notes

Have you ever understood love bombing to be a form of anxiety? We most commonly understand this definition in conversations about narcissistic behaviors, yet the more we learn about our own relationship expectations, upbringing, and inability to be emotionally available, we may start to learn that the capacity to love bomb others is within us all. We often miss that grand gestures within days of meeting or a constant need to be in contact are both common gateways to love bombing. This episode is for you if you become anxious at the thought of being selected by others or to receive external validation to feel valued and secure. This episode is also for you if you frequently speed through the "getting to know you" space at the beginning or throughout connecting as a testament to not wasting your time.
