Are you putting a wall up between yourself and your current like and/or love interest? If so, you are not alone. This is a common occurrence when we are dating or at the beginnings of a blossoming relationship. We often put these walls up to protect ourselves from getting hurt or rejected. It can be hard (and sometimes scary) to let our guard down and let someone know who we really are, and what our true feelings and opinions are. Opening up in this way may even make us feel more vulnerable than being physically intimate with our partners. But sharing in this way can also bring us the closeness that we really want to experience and have in our relationships.
If you are ready to take your relationship to the next level, don’t be afraid to let your walls down. Take baby steps as you choose to share what is real for you with your partner. If you feel rejected by your partner, then that gives you good information. It means he or she is probably not right for you anyway. You deserve to be with someone who respects and accepts you for who you are. Taking the time to figure out how to choose a potential partner will also increase the likelihood of you building a relationship with someone who will make it easier for you to be yourself and keep your walls at bay.
