Knowing ourselves well involves understanding ourselves so we can be emotionally available in our relationships. It’s about knowing what triggers us to pull back, stonewall, and protect ourselves from the potential pain that was brought about by our circumstances. Being emotionally available to others allows us to establish honest and healthy relationships, even during conflict.
Today, I share what emotional availability is and the steps you can take to increase your emotional availability with others. I discuss why people are emotionally unavailable in relationships, how to deal with the challenges associated with it, and what you can do to make others feel comfortable with opening up and being emotionally available. I also share how my perspective of the male emotional world has changed since my childhood and how my family and I experienced a deeper level of connectedness, honesty, and love in spite of a family conflict.
“This is one way to transform the world - by being emotionally available.” - Pripo Teplitsky
