Brene Brown, an incredibly entertaining and captivating speaker, touches on the concept that in order for us to have the close, loving relationships we desire, we have to be willing to be vulnerable with each other.
This is not a simple thing to do, and is often scary. When couples are in distress, it can be incredibly frightening to open up and be vulnerable again, especially if the relationship experienced a betrayal or trauma.
Seeking out a couples therapist, particularly one trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy as I am, can be an important step in working back to the closeness and intimacy you desire in your relationship. www.MarriageCounselinginDenver.com
