Fear of Intimacy: Rejection and engulfment
Welcome - we are glad you came for help!
Most of us grow up fearing both rejection and engulfment, due to our growing-up experiences. But currently, protecting against rejection and engulfment might be causing your relationship problems, or may be the underlying reasons for not being able to find or sustain a loving relationship. Discover how to begin healing these fears.
Ponder the difference between knowledge and wisdom. Knowledge is something we acquire through various forms of education - books, experts, the Internet. Wisdom is a deep inner knowing of how to apply the knowledge in ways that support our highest good and the highest good of all. Knowledge without wisdom is the realm of the wounded self. Wisdom is the realm of the loving Adult.
