It’s really important that we feel that we are emotionally connected to others, and that we have at least one person with whom we can be ourselves, warts and all, authentically. Someone who accepts us for who we are, with all our imperfections. We can achieve this connection through friends and family members.
But it’s essential to experience this in our romantic relationships too.
You need to not only be able to share the good times with your partner, but also the bad times too. The uglier emotions. Your failures as well as your successes. And you need to feel you can trust they will still be there for you regardless. Because if you don’t have that, you don’t have trust, or a feeling of security in the relationship.
But as with all needs, we must balance the need for emotional connection with time alone.
To build on the emotional connection with your partner, consider these questions:-
- Are you completely honest with your partner, or do you hold back for fear of rejection?
- Do you share your failures as well as your successes with your partner?
- Do you feel your partner loves you because of who you are, rather than in spite of who you are?
