Why Anxiously Attached People Get Loud to Feel Safe

Getting louder is a common strategy for those with an anxious attachment style. It’s a way to seek attention, to be noticed, and to feel a sense of connection. If this sounds familiar, know that you’re not alone. Many of us with this attachment style have had to protest and get louder to have our needs met and to be noticed.

When we get louder in a relationship, it can feel incredibly unsafe to the other person, and often, the other person will move away, which is exactly what we are trying to prevent. 

This is especially tricky in the pursuer/withdrawer dynamic in a relationship.
