"Just as we have to adapt to the discomfort of shame, we also have to learn to tolerate the discomfort of intimacy/closeness."

That's true but it's easier to tolerate shame than that of intimacy. For me, I was burned too many times when I eagerly sought intimacy - so my armour is heavy as a pre-emptive measure.

It is a powerful silence (and a healing one) that follows a new mutual understanding of something just discovered. It's reflective and filled with love.
