How to Get and Stay Close to People?

Outside of my blood relatives (and I don't often talk to or see them), I've lost touch with everyone I've ever known. My husband is the longest I've known someone for and it has been less than 5 years since we met. I know he loves me but he doesn't really know me and I'm afraid that soon I will drift away from him, too...

What doesn't he know about you that you feel will make him drift away?

Other than these fears, how is life treating you? Are you productive and happy? Do you think guilt might be the culprit that keeps you from being as happy as you'd like?

i know its hard, but you should open up. its hard for me to be open to people too, but your husband obviously loves you. sit down, and explain to him that this is hard, and you just need him to listen for a while. if you still feel that you can't let yourself get close to him, maybe you're not meant for each other.
