How emotional intimacy affects your relationship

04 August 2016, 20:33 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - How emotional intimacy affects your relationship.

It can build or break your communication

Being close emotionally means that your partner is able to talk to you and be straightforward with you. The minute you start keeping things from each other no matter how small is the moment that will define the course of you partnership, friendship and understanding. Just one lie or omission is all it takes. But when you are comfortable with each other, you are not afraid. Emotional intimacy creates a safe environment.

If you are not getting it in your relationship, you are getting it from somewhere else

That is just how it works. Everyone needs a life line and if you are not getting yours from your spouse, who is that other third party in your marriage because they are that. You do not see it, maybe assuming that you do not want to hurt them or burden them but you are creating a wall in your own relationship.

If you are not friends then you are at least partners

But you have to be friends of sorts for it to be great. You will not want to hurt your friend. Emotional intimacy contributes to your partnership and how you choose to understand each other. The minute you see this working, is the moment you will know that the both of you are alright.

It is healthy

It is the first step in having a healthy and fulfilling relationship because it leads to the next and next; mental, physical, and the rest.
