One of my greatest fears is the fear that if I keep financially expanding and allow myself to succeed beyond my wildest dreams, then I will lose the people in my life because they will reject me.
I call this the fear of losing love.
The need to be loved is one of our most basic needs.
Research has shown that babies who are starved of affectionate touch can actually stop growing and can become ill. It’s not enough for babies to be held, they have to be nuzzled and kissed, they have to be held in a way that makes them feel loved.
So as adults, it makes sense that we’d also want to hold onto the love we have in our lives and not lose it.
