Overcoming any type of fear requires determination from the part of the person who is afraid of certain things. Fear of abandonment is a psychological disorder wherein the person feels uncontrolled anxiety when he or she encounters situations that require facing the difficulties of life alone and without any support.
The person feels helpless in such cases. Even though he may have support and help in tough times, the very idea of being alone makes him feel insecure and uncomfortable.
The loss of a near one, broken relationships, disturbed childhood, and some social or personal trauma can be some of the possible causes of such feelings. Anybody experiencing such fears can be helped by proper counseling and care.
