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.
Ask yourself 100 times today, "What is in my highest good right now?" In this moment, do you need to work, exercise or rest? Do you need to eat or stop eating? Do you need to offer caring or support to someone? Do you need to speak up for yourself with someone? Asking what is in your highest good will keep you connected with Spirit and on track in taking loving action for yourself and with others.
