Intimacy in a relationship is the process of revealing yourself too the other person involved. Yet we spend most of our time and energy keeping our true selves from each other in a relationship.

We need and want intimacy but choose to keep secrets.

Being intimate means opening up all the closets of you mind, body, soul, and heart with another human being who is also imperfect just like you.

To experience intimacy you must allow another person to know:

  • What drives you?
  • What inspires you?
  • What moves you?
  • What upsets you?
  • What your goals in life are
  • What scares you?
  • The enemies that you have inside your head
  • The dreams and passions of your heart
Intimacy requires that you take off your mask of life and just like an onion you peel off and reveal layer upon layer of your true self.

There is no greater gift than revealing everything that shapes and directs your life that you can give to a person.

When you allow another person into your mind, body, soul, and heart you have done all that intimacy requires.

Now it is important to understand that not all relationships are worth or deserve such complete intimacy, however your primary relationship should be, even if it's only with yourself.

What is intimacy?

Intimacy is the process of giving yourself completely in self-revelation.
