Intimacy | Distance
In our lives we often share our most intimate moments with our romantic partner. That close bond can nourish us. Loving and being loved is something many seek in young adulthood.
Throughout our lifetimes, we may have times when we are out of love or have lost someone we love. For others, a fear of intimacy can get in the way of closer relationships. Trust may not come easily to some, especially to those who have been hurt in the past.
As human beings we are innately intimate. We hold hands, hug, and kiss. We laugh and we cry. We have amazing chemistry with some and not so much with others. We feel a heart felt connection and this contributes to a feeling of being truly together.
If you are feeling distant in your relationships, then therapy is a place to look more closely at what is causing the distance.
By feeling safe and supported in therapy, you can take steps towards building more emotional intimacy into your relationships.
