Undressing our body is sometimes not that difficult, but it is only by undressing our souls in intimacy that we really show ourselves for who we are. When we do this, we leave fears, insecurities and weaknesses in the open, and we feel extremely vulnerable. It is amazing how easy it can be to take off your clothes, while it is much more difficult to throw away that armor that protects us. But only in this way can two souls manage to touch each other and we can really connect with each other in the most genuine and sincere way possible.
Intimacy is created when two souls manage to touch each other, when we go beyond the body and create a bond with the deepest part of the person in front of us.. From that moment on, our caresses will not rest only on his skin, but on her personality. Only when we allow ourselves to be held in an embrace and abandon our defenses, will we be able to say goodbye to rigidity and leave room for everything we harbor inside of us.
But what is the key that can open the cage of our heart? What is the secret to being able, little by little, to show ourselves for who we are? At what moment do our defenses give way and do we touch true intimacy? That turning point is called trust.
Trust in a relationship is the bridge to sincere and deep connection
It will probably be difficult at first to reach it, because we will have to fight against our defense mechanisms, we will have to get rid of them one at a time. When we do, however, we will know that even if we stumble, the other person will help us get back up. That he won't leave when we show him who we really are. Because true trust comes from acceptance.
It might be difficult, but only when we have achieved mutual trust can we really start our story. That story in which intimacy is the key that opens the security locks, that pushes us to show ourselves for what we are. Without forcing, without other observers ... Only two souls in a pure state.
Free yourself from fear to create intimacy
It is normal for doubts to arise, it is normal to initially refuse such intimacy. Showing ourselves without any filter makes us feel vulnerable, and then there is the risk that the other will not do the same. What if by showing us for who we are we no longer have to like us? What if we told him everything about us and he didn't reciprocate our feelings? What can happen when we open our hearts to someone?
Of course, the possibility that the other does not react as we hope exists. But if we don't try, we will never know if he would have accepted us completely. To achieve a deep level of trust and be able to create that intimacy we so desire, we need to take off the mask. In other words, we have to take risks. If we don't, we will never have the opportunity to create solid and genuine relationships, and to achieve true intimacy with another person.
We are surrounded by superficial relationships, which are based on unspoken criticisms; of sexual relations that feed on only the body; of fears suffered in solitude; of people who just keep company, but are not really united ... The time has come to stop building our relationships on a bunch of fears, if that's not what we want. We must be free, courageous and strong. We must seek what we deserve.
Intimacy is a feeling full of trust and understanding. We don't have to be afraid of it. Fear holds us back and protects us, but it also prevents us from continuing to grow and deepen our relationships. Having a bad experience in the past doesn't mean it will happen again. We must have the courage to try again, not to close ourselves off in rejection. We have to push ourselves to want something more, to want something better.
Two souls manage to touch each other: the courage to show ourselves for who we are
Being brave means showing your essence: choosing authenticity to allow others to see us. Only in this way will they truly know us, and only in this way can we be sure that those who live next to us love us as we are.
The only way to feel confident enough not to give up who we are is to love ourselves. Only in this way will we accept our fears, we will begin to value ourselves and prevent our insecurities from chaining us. Only in this way will we be able to show the world who we really are.
We let go of the union of bodies and allow souls to bond with each other. Let's get rid of fears and free ourselves, to discover ourselves and to discover others. Down with makeup, down with armor, down with insecurities! We let them know us as we really are, only in this way can souls be able to touch each other.
