3 Reasons Why You Fall For Emotionally Unavailable Partners
T he thing about being tied to the emotionally unavailable is that this person can be sitting right next to you and still feel miles away. They will either pull away, become angry, or change the topic altogether — anything to divert from the fact that they cannot meet you on that same field. But that just means that I was emotionally unavailable, too. At least not in any substantial sense. Instead of fighting tooth and nail to break into their psyches and force them to share their feelings, why not get in touch with your own? Our lives adapt to the way we think, and we create a self-fulfilling prophecy, always seeing our rejection and accepting it as the truth. S ure, sometimes your partner opens up just a crack and you catch a glimpse of something similar to light in the depth of their soul.
Where does that leave you? - My most common client is in a relationship with an emotionally unavailable partner.
Those in a relationship with an emotionally unavailable partner often find themselves in conflict with the partner, or at the very least frustrated or confused. However, few understand what causes such emotional unavailability, much less how to reach out to connect. The person who is emotionally unavailable rarely realises the pain and confusion caused to the very person they want to hurt the least. But they see their emotions as negative or unnecessary and internalise them to the extent that they become unaware of their own feelings or needs beyond the physical. When this occurs it becomes impossible for them to understand or empathise with what another person is feeling, hence they are emotionally unavailable to those around them.
Emotional ignorance is a great obstacle to relationships. The inability to connect feelings is a huge hindrance in creating a strong, healthy and lasting relationships. In fact, its difficulty is a challenge to emotionally unavailable people. Some build walls around their heart to avoid feeling vulnerable, and others flee when intimacy comes to the scene. These people may have emotional immaturity and even love can become a great threat. This does not mean that they do not enter into relationships, however, they generally tend to leave them or shut themselves out when feelings develop. It is as if they always have a shell on their backs as a refuge whenever they need it, especially when the situation demands emotional intimacy.
