Attentional factors and attachment security

We all live our life moving between two worlds.

In one world, we experience ourselves, others, and our world in a positive way. We notice more of the good things when we are there.

In the other world, we experience ourselves, others and our world in a negative way. We notice more of the bad things when we are there.

The difference from person to person is how much time we spend in each world, and the consequences in terms of our feelings, actions, and choices.

Ideally, we spend as much time as possible living where we experience ourselves, others, and our world in a positive way.

It helps to notice the things that remind us we are in a good place.

What do you notice about yourself, others, and your world when you are in a good place?

You: _______________________________________

Others: ____________________________________

My world : _________________________________

Write your answers and put them somewhere you will see them each day.
