Emotional Intimacy

Part 2 of our love series continues.

Intimacy.

In too me see.

Every human being wants to be seen by the one they deeply love.

When Adam and Eve were in the garden. They were naked. Every flaw and every part of themselves was out on display. Completely seen by one another in the scariest way possible.

Every human being wants to be seen emotionally.

Every human being wants to essentially undress and be loved for who they are completely. Every human being wants to be accepted by the one they deeply love.

It’s unfortunate that to truly love. You must truly undress. You must truly not holdback. You must truly allow yourself to be emotionally seen by another human being.

To open ones heart up again is scary. It’s an emotional journey that requires trust and extreme vulnerability. I slowly learned the importance of being emotionally intimate with someone and there is nothing better than opening up your heart to be read by the one who loves you the most.

Trust, time spent and being truthful allows one to fully unravel in the eyes of another human being.

Emotional intimacy allows each person to build a solid level of communication and security amongst each other. Slowly it becomes the backbone of any relationship.

I. See. You.

I. Hear. You.

I. Trust. You.

I trust that in allowing you in. You will know my truth. I trust that in allowing you in. You will know what will truly kill me and never use that as a weapon in the future.

Let this blog post be a warning.

Never allow yourself to be emotional seen by someone who has no prospects of staying after they’ve seen you emotionally unravel.

Never allow yourself to be in a space where someone else emotionally unravels in front of you and you have no prospects of staying.

It causes hurt and emotional turmoil to another human being and it is acting without emotional integrity.

For you who loves deeply, openly and honestly. Intimacy does not lie in two bodies “making love”. True intimacy is found in emotions and truly opening up your heart to another being.

Always be curious about your partners heart. Always be curious about:

“What’s on their mind?”

“What’s bothering them?”

“What’s in their heart?”

“What are they dreaming of?”

And always be as loud about how much you love them for every part they bring to the table.

See into them.

Stay blessed.

  1. A much needed post. Honestly, it’s how your words always come at a point when I need to hear them most. This post felt like a reassuring hug I needed.
