In your life, there are different people that you feel emotionally attached to. These are the people who are connected to you on such a level that you care about them deeply. You are really concerned about their well being. And you like to spend time with each other because it makes you happy. You get so used to their presence that they become an important part of your life that you don’t want to let go of.
Here are 6 signs that you are emotionally attached to someone:
1. You find it difficult to let go of a person.
When you are emotionally attached to a person, they become important to you. And slowly and steadily as you progress in your relationship you find it hard to imagine your life without them. If things get rough between you, it is still difficult for you to let them go because you are so used to them that you can’t contemplate your life without them and such a change scares you to the bones.
2. You really understand them.
Being emotionally attached to someone means that you both have created a special bond with each other. As your relationship moves forward, you become more and more attuned to each other. And as you learn more things about them, you get a better understanding of who they are as a person? When someone feels understood in a relationship they feel like they are being seen for who they are. And it leads the relationship to grow on a much deeper level.
3. You absorb their emotions.
When you are emotionally attached to someone you start to take on their moods and emotional state, without realizing it. People who are empathetic and highly sensitive often experience that they are absorbing the mood of those around them. This can lead to emotional and mental fatigue and can be extremely exhausting and tiring. So, it’s important to maintain your boundaries and learn to regulate your emotions.
4. You want your family and friends to know about them.
You want the special person in your life to meet the most important people in your life. Your closest friend’s opinions or views about your partner matters to you and you wish that they like them as much as you do. You want both of them to like and get along with each other.
5. You take interest in the things they like.
To show them how much you care about them you take interest in the things that they like. Maybe you are someone who has never finished a book in their life but because this person has offered you their favorite book, you want to finish it to impress them. And you have spent your time listening to the songs they like, watching TV shows and movies that they have recommended to you.
6. You want to spend time with them more often.
Spending time with them makes you feel happy. You both have this vibe with each other that no matter how long you talk or spend time with each other you never get bored. You make plans to meet up even if both you are busy. And you are always calling or texting each other. You spend so much time with each other that sometimes you are having three completely different conversations simultaneously on three different social media platforms!
Being emotionally attached to someone is not a bad thing. It just means that you have an emotional connection with each other and you like and care about each other. It only becomes bad when you get so attached to someone that all you ever think about is them, or you are unable to keep up with your other relationships because you never have time for anyone, including yourself.
