Why are we afraid of intimacy?

liberatingreality answered:

We experience inner conflict in regards to pursuing intimate connection due to the inherent risk of agonizing disconnection that it may eventually entail.  This is the nature of all pain and pleasure though, creation and destruction, etc.  One cannot exist without the other, they are components to a single process, thus we must acclimate ourselves to this dynamic lest we consent to perpetual stagnation.
