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.
Giving and receiving, receiving and giving, creates a circle of loving energy that fills and brings joy. Giving without receiving will eventually leave you drained, and taking without giving will leave you empty. Today, be aware of giving and receiving with people, animals, nature and God.
