How to Create the Intimacy You Crave Without the Fear GUEST: Allana Pratt
In today's episode, I'm talking about what it takes to get past the fear of intimacy that a past relationship has taught you. It happens so often, doesn't it?
You fall in love, and really trust someone. You are tell them your secrets, and share your vulnerabilities. You so want to have that one person you can share life with, warts and all. You want to believe you are safe.
Sometimes, you are safe, and it all works beautifully. It deepens, grows, and enriches over your time together.
Then, there are the times where you share deeply, and the other person uses what you said, turns your fears into weapons, and beats you with them in future arguments. Does that sound at all familiar?
You can recover from this nonsense, pain, and trepidation. Really! You can. I'll give you some hints, and so will today's guest.
