I think the reason I never realized I had a fear of intimacy is because, like most people who are avoidant-attached, I actually want intimacy but when faced with it, it’s scary.

It’s like getting the big break you’ve been wanting and then rejecting it because you suddenly “realized” that this isn’t what you want.
