May 30, 2021--The Fear of Intimacy
People who are afraid of love
are ambivalent about giving and receiving.
When you are aloof, they feel safe
and desire your presence.
But when you come close, they get scared
and ask you to back off or go away.
This emotionally teasing behavior
enables them to be in relationship
while avoiding intimacy and commitment.
If you are drawn into such a relationship,
you must face the fact that you too
may be afraid to receive love.
Why else would you choose a partner
who cannot give it?
