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.
Think about someone you love. Think about who they are without their fear. Can you see their light and love? Can you see their power? Now look within yourself. Who are you without your fear? Can you see your light, your love, your beauty, your power?
