But what about relationship fears? Just those basic fears and insecurities that we all carry with us in relationships?
Yep, we all have them. 2 basic fears. And those 2 fears? They pull against each other. One can trigger the other in couples. We all have both, but tend to have a tendency to one fear or the other. And when that fear is triggered, it often triggers the opposite fear in a spouse.
Which, by the way, increases the fear in the other.
Those two fears?
- Fear of Intimacy
- Fear of Abandonment
Let’s talk about what those fears are about, why we have them, what triggers them, and why it becomes such an issue in marriage.
