Emotional intimacy involves sharing your feelings, emotions and needs with someone who is committed to you. If it is difficult for you, begin with entrusting yourself to God and share your emotions and feelings with Him because He understands. Practice this by being totally honest with God – use David’s Psalms.
There are three steps towards expressing oneself – determine what you want to say, how you want to say it and when you want to say it.
Let us look at WHAT – my assumptions, beliefs, desires, dreams, and needs.
HOW – Use “I” messages. I feel neglected, I believe in Jesus, my dreams are for us to be happily married.
WHEN – when you are relaxed, not before going to sleep. Plan a time.
