Being able to be intimate with another is probably one of the most wonderful experiences in life. By being intimate we allow ourselves to stand naked and vulnerable in front of the other without the fear of being too exposed. We allow ourselves to be touched in many different ways without the fear of getting hurt. We allow ourselves to become lovers even if the relationship is not sexual in nature. In moments of intimacy we become unmasked, fully trusting, sharing deepest secrets and most private thoughts. We share the sense of closeness and unity. We freely offer and receive tenderness, caring and affection.
The best part is that each and every one of us deserves and has the ability to experience this special connection....for the first time or again. All we have to do is allow it, learn to suspend the fear and open up. Take a risk, don't fear loss or failure, let go of hurts from previous relationships, throw our masks away, trust in the goodness of others, don't question, know that we are worthy of this, give some affection and care first.... and enjoy every moment :)
