When we think of intimacy… we often think of sex.
But, sex is just one aspect of intimacy.
Other aspects of intimacy are: our thought life, our dreams and aspirations, certain parts of our bodies; which, of course, can include our sexuality, are all intimate and personal.
Intimacy also includes our friendships—who we allow near to us.
Social media has skewed what friendship is really all about. So, our kids need to know the significance of true intimacy—and, it’s full definition. Because, this generation has toyed with personal intimacy, it’s brought on a lot of unnecessary stress and heartache.
I think if our kids better understood and respected true intimacy, sex and social media would become less threatening issues for all of us.
