Intimacy is not just the closeness, communication, and sexuality that is expressed within a significant relationship. Intimacy is bigger and broader than that. Intimacy symbolizes the spirit of togetherness, the ease of rapport, the joy of friendliness, the power of confidence, the eloquence of faith, the fundamental need for safety, and the sanctity of trust. These are qualities essential to our survival; essential to our fulfillment within a primary relationship, family, friendship, the workplace, and the community we live in.
