What our Most Intimate Relationships Show us about Ourselves

Does he feel the same way? Why is he acting distant?

Why would he say all those things to me and then not call me to connect to continue to get to know me?

Am I enough for him? Am I too much for him?

What if he stops liking me?

Yikes! It gives me anxiety just to type those words.

But in a matter of days, we went from discussions of our future together—to silence. What happened? My heart told me he was scared. I get it—I was scared, too. But let’s run with it, and see what happens.

I found his lack of communication hurtful, especially after the time we had spent together. I felt sad, angry and betrayed. I knew I needed help and guidance to shift my thoughts and give me a clearer perspective. I prayed for a miracle, which is really just a shift in perspective.

Rather than trying to change or control my love interest—which never works—I knew I was the person who needed to change.
