A note from Mark Felber
"Every addiction arises from an unconscious refusal to face and move through your own pain...you are using something and somebody to cover up your pain. That is why, after the initial euphoria has passed, there is so much unhappiness, so much pain in intimate relationships. They do not cause pain and unhappiness. They bring out the pain and unhappiness that is already in you. Every addiction does that."
~Eckhart Tolle

Intimacy—Accept No Imitations

How and What to Reveal Writer Pat Love asks, "What is intimacy?" and then answers her own question, "Into me, see." It's not that to be intimate you need be transparent, or that every thought, feeling or story must be shared with your partner--but intimacy flourishes in a climate in which it's safe to disclose parts of your experience that cut closer and closer to your private self.

Sometimes, though, a longing for connection can lead to disclosing too much too soon, or telling a new partner more than he or she is ready to know or needs to know. Or to opening up too much about ourselves or people close to us when discretion might be the better choice. Consider following the Rule of Three: let a disclosure come to mind three times before sharing it rather than saying everything exactly as it occurs. Those things that recur are the ones that really belong to the relationship.
