Fear of intimacy can be a lifelong struggle for many introverts, both in an emotional and physical sense. Often, simply saying how you feel can seem like the most difficult thing in the world.
You might also find it hard to confront someone when they’ve crossed a boundary, share your true opinions in conversation, or express certain ‘ugly’ emotions like anger or jealousy.
All of the above actions require vulnerability and they can feel scary as hell for introverts like us. And those are just the clothes-on fears.
When it’s time to shed your clothes and get physically intimate, it’s like you have an invisible under armour that won’t come off. Getting close to someone new is beyond uncomfortable and frustrating, because it doesn’t flow naturally like it seems to for other people.
If you’ve ever felt this way, you’re not alone, and there’s nothing wrong with you! In this video, I talk about why opening up emotionally and physically can be so tough for introverts, and what to do about it.
It is possible to overcome a fear of intimacy, without crippling anxiety. It all begins with the mindset shift I explain in the video.
