changes can also be influenced by our relationships so it comes full circle. An experience I had made me change something about myself emotionally which changed how I thought about an aspect of love. All those experiences interact. What I have learned boils down to this. You can love someone you didn't expect to. You can love someone even after they have hurt you so badly you don't know how you'll recover. You can love someone you haven't spoken to in a very long time. Once you have loved someone, you don't ever really stop loving them. You can start loving someone else while you're still in love with someone else. You love every person differently. 6. Attachment as an infant plays such a big role in how a person handles their relationships later in life. A securely attached baby will probably grow up to have happy, secure relationships. A baby with any of the insecure attachments is more likely to have problems later. It's hard to know how my parents treated me when I was an infant, but based on later experiences and general knowledge I can make an educated guess. My mom works in an elementary school and ran a small day care before that. She is wonderful with children, so I can only guess that we had a secure attachment when I was a baby. We have had a great relationship my entire life, even during those crazy teenage years when I was supposed to hate her. Because I have such good relationships with my parents, I expect the same quality relationships with the other people in my life. It may mean I do not have many close friends, but it means the ones I do have are quality ones because they return my affection and care. I also expect a lot out of romantic relationships. I have no problem showing love to my partner, and I expect them to do the same. I expect a fair amount of communication and affection, which is usual for any secure attachment. I have realized, however, that not everyone received the same care that I did and that their way of showing affection might be different. I have to be able to adapt to interact with people who may not have had a secure attachment in their childhood and that shaped how they are going to interact with me as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
