Video Page: The Challenge of Being Close

Video by The School of Life

Relationships, though both a significant and natural part of human lives, can also be quite daunting. The process of connecting with another person, opening up to them, and getting close enough to build an intimate relationship is fraught with complexities and grey-areas, which often has a marked impact on how we interact with that person and how we choose to conduct ourselves around them. After all, despite the fact that we all crave human connection, laying our souls bare to someone else in its entirety is not easy. The School of Life’s video, The Challenge of Being Close, examines this in sensitive detail, talking about the various ins and outs of navigating intimacy and closeness.
