In my emotional healing journey one of the best definitions as I was working on healing my inner child. I came across this and WOW feels spot on
“Emotional intimacy involves knowing that you have someone you can tell anything to, someone to go to with all your feelings, about anything and everything.
You feel completely safe opening up to the other person, whether in the form of words, through an exchange of looks, or by just being together quietly in a state of connection.
Emotional intimacy is profoundly fulfilling, creating a sense of being seen for who you really are. It can only exist when the other person seeks to know you, not judge you.”
