Healing Attachment Wounds with Romantic Best Friend Andre LagaceMar 10, 2021
You are catching me at the start of a transition. For the past 4 years I’ve been nesting with my romantic BFF Andre Lagace, but this week I’ll be packing up the Subaru and moving from Vancouver, BC down to Henderson, NV.
Even before this move was on the horizon, Andre and I had been planning on releasing an episode about attachments and how we’ve worked to co-create a secure relationship from a highly unstable one. But having a conversation about attachments in the midst of my packed boxes felt particularly poignant.
I struggle to identify exactly who Andre is to me. He is my ex-boyfriend, ex-partner but our relationship has evolved beyond what those labels mean to most people. For the past year, he has been my quaran-teammate. We’ve cooked together, laughed together, cried together, gardened together. Pretty much spent every waking moment together in our 800 square foot apartment. He is also my co-collaborator on almost all the things that you see manifested here on Empowered Curiosity. He is the producer of this podcast. He creates all my graphics. And he’s also who I muse with daily for inspiration. Romantic BFF felt like the easiest way to describe him, but even that doesn’t quite encapsulate who he is and what he means to me.
What You'll Learn in this Episode:
- How to co-create a secure relationship even when both partners are on opposite ends of the attachment spectrum
- Communication tools for both the anxious and avoidant partner to create security in a challenging conversation
- The importance of correcting the stories we tell ourselves
