What Is The Meaning Of Intimacy and Why It's So Important?
It is a warm closeness and friendship with someone. The willingness to be vulnerable and open to another person. It is a connection between the thinking, emotions and spirituality of two people.
It consists of love, trust and the ability to communicate on a deep personal level. The capacity to share ourselves on a soul level..
When intimacy is present in a partnership, it raises sexual pleasure, and passion. It is what makes us feel that we have found a unique person, and we are in the relationship meant for us.
Many people today meet and get married or move in with each other immediately.
Relationships are founded on chemistry, and attraction is confused for love. Therefore, there is no time to form a friendship much less one based on intimacy. Then when a seemingly happy couple break up, everyone wonders what went wrong.
1. Allow Your Partner To Express Feelings Without Judgment
Accept positive and negative feedback and never tell your partner they shouldn't feel what they feel
Take your partner's concerns and feelings seriously.
Though we do not always agree with someone, we can at least show we care about the other person's fears and concerns. This will build trust.
Do not devalue your partner by telling them their feelings are stupid, silly, or uncalled for. When we feel or think something it is very real to us. If we remember this we can be more compassionate with our partner.
2. Allow your partner to express the negative aspects so they can be corrected
Allowing only positive expression is not realistic and will only kill your relationship. Allowing negative feedback will show your partner you care about the success of the relationship.
3. Ask your partner what they want from the relationship. Get to know your partner.
If your partner wants you to do something you do not want to do, try to think of alternatives.
Make time to be alone with your partner and be loving. Talk and communicate. This will created the memories of your time together.
Express your preferences to your partner, the good and the bad.
True love causes you to put yourself in the place of your partner. This way you can know what your partner is experiencing.
4. Value your partner in the living room as much as you do in the bedroom.
Allowing your partner to be vulnerable *creates trust between you. No one enjoys being around someone they do not trust.
Once your partner has allowed themselves to be vulnerable with you
(revealing to you the things that make them happy, sad, jealous etc) do not use any of it against them.
5. Draw Close To Your Partner
Becoming intimate causes our sexuality to feel like spirituality.
When we love someone we try to understand them. If we do not understand them we at least stand by them.
Loyalty is as important as being faithful.
All in all if you allow intimacy into your relationship, it will last possibly forever.
*Trust is something we have to earn and does not come automatically to people just because they fall in love.
