What are the “anchors”?

These are support points which allow us achieving relative stability of life. These are the nooks of our soul that make us feel valuable, safe and agential. “Anchoring” may seem simple and effortless, but it turns out to be problematic for many people. The first “anchors” that we can build, we build in childhood, among the family and in the immediate environment. However, there will always exist differences in the conditions we grow up. One kid would be lucky and manage to build psychosocial stability at the very start, while others will have to put more effort into “anchoring”. An extremely important element is just noticing that we are missing some “anchor”. And it is the awareness that can make us desire. The desire for a change.
