Vulnerability is scary. What will my partner think if they know how I feel and think? Will they accept me as I am? Every person in relationship has a longing for emotional connection, to be loved, accepted, and cherished for who they are, as they are. Sometimes we don't feel that way, right?!? Instead, we feel inadequate, or like we might be too much for our partner. We might feel nagged or minimized when we try to share our important feelings, thoughts, and experiences.
