Changing And Learning Takes Time

  • Physical intimacy is not a short cut to emotional intimacy
  • Emotional intimacy takes time
  • Set physical and emotional boundaries so other people don’t take over your life
  • Curb your urge to merge with someone... take time to get to know them
  • Build boundaries not barricades so you can achieve intimacy
  • Take time and then take the risk of intimacy
