Relationship-smart women


61. Why is intimacy so darn hard?

Intimacy (and I am not talking about sex), in my opinion is one of the hardest things in the whole world, but also, something that gives us the deepest most heart fulfilling satisfaction.

Gah, what a dilemma! It would be so much easier if we could just get all operational and robotic and not have to have those hard conversations, get vulnerable and honest with ourselves and then share it with another....we could just get on with it. But alas, as humans, we are drawn back in to the fray.

To do it best, intimacy starts within with an intimate relationship with ourselves. So what does that look like?

In this episode I share my very messy intimate journey that led me to be an intimacy and relationship coach and share with you what getting intimate entails.

This episode was inspired by an interview on @drkirstyseward 's podcast. You can listen to that here -
