You cannot have a relationship, let alone an intimate marriage, without communication.
The word intimacy comes from the Latin word intimus, meaning “inner.” Therefore, intimacy comes from sharing the “inner person” – your thoughts, feelings, and desires. You are the only human who knows what is going on inside of you.
If you choose to share your “inner self” and your partner chooses to listen, there can be understanding and empathy. If your partner does the same and you listen, the two of you will have an intimate relationship. Talking and listening – it sounds so simple. Often the missing ingredient is love – the desire to help each other rather than get our own way. We all need support and affection and the opportunity to express our emotions.
Work on being a good listener and watch what happens.
Sending you light and love
