Understanding intimacy affects who we allow near to us, and puts all our other relationships into perspective
Trace Embry explains next.
When we think of intimacy, we often think of sex, but that is only one aspect of intimacy. Our thought life, our dreams and aspirations, and certain parts of our body, which can include our sexuality, are all intimate and personal.
Intimacy also includes our friendships, and who we allow near to us. Social media has skewed what friendship is really all about. Our kids need to know the significance of true intimacy. Because this generation has toyed with personal intimacy, it’s brought on a lot of unnecessary stress and heartache. If our kids better understood and respected true intimacy, sex and social media would become less threatening issues for all of us.
