Oh boy. Intimacy. Say it out loud. What does it make you feel? Who does it make you think of? What does it make you want? I can’t even start to begin with the cringing warmness that takes over my body. Intimacy is everything. It’s what binds us and separates us. It’s the difference between the paradigm of We are all at odds to We are all connected.
Intimacy starts with the self and ends with self.
I’ve delved deeper into myself this last year and it has allowed me get deeper in my personal relationships; with a lot of resistance. I should make that clear. Like a salmon swimming upstream... Intimacy is freaking scary. To know yourself, to know someone else, and to have someone else know you.... is not easy. Little crazy monsters in all. Yeah, we all have them. My monsters aren’t even cute. But they are a part of me. And a really necessarypart of me. The light shines out of me because of these nasty little guys. I’m learning to love my little monsters. Not everyone wants your little monsters or will understand them. But I do know you will meet people who will accept them and not run the other way. Share them. Be them.Let them take over you. Then handle it. Work it out. Talk it out. Drink it out. Own it.
Let intimacy in.
Let love in. Let it all in. Read my All the Feels post. Love and intimacy are not synonymous. Intimacy is a mix-a-cocktail of pure joy and darkness. Can you have one without the other? Get intimate.
