In today’s electronic age of communication through social media, Twitter, Facebook, and texting, many couples struggle to find the kind of intimacy that fulfills their dreams and desires. Our connection with one another is slipping towards a more impersonal, less vulnerable, and unrealistic form of interaction and connectedness.
Sharing our deeper feelings with each other is an act of vulnerability. Trust is a result of honesty and openness. When trust is broken, it can be rebuilt and become more robust, and the past hurts, and pain becomes events in the marriage timeline instead of defining the relationship. Turning towards each other and making successful bids to connect foster a healthy connection. Real change occurs, and couples forge new and more secure connections.
