Hi,
From what you've said so far, I can understand that you are scared of being abandoned by the people that you love the most.

You might feel like you're the only one who's attached.
The point where we feel like we are more attached to one person, and it's not reciprocated is when we feel insecure about the relationship, and we fear the person would abandon us.

First, it would be better to identify the relationship where you have felt abandoned earlier in your life.
There might be some patterns in our previous relationships that would give us some insight as to why we feel that way.

Probably you have an experience that is similar to this.
Maybe you can write back to us with more information so that we can help you better.

Until then, all the best and take care :)
