Enjoying the love
I need to work on being more of an open person. I'm someone you'd go to for advice but not an arm to cry on necessarily.Read books on psychology and try to encourage a secure atrachment style. It's not that difficult. Be responsive, set boundaries, support realistic and balanced self-appraisal. And be an example of what a healthy relationship looks like. Children model their parents. Oddly enough they form attachment issues with the more difficult parent lol. This could be the hooyo. As some interact more with them. Particularly if she's emotionally absent (depressed, exhausted, unwell, emotionally numb, dismissive/belittling, chronically stressed etc).
