Why Emotional Avoidance is Harmful To Your Relationship

Why is emotional avoidance of either type harmful to the relationship?
Because it creates distance in the relationship due to lack of emotional closeness.
 Feelings of love and passion for each other gradually decrease if the emotional needs of either or both partners are not met.
 Many problems that could have been solved early in the relationship are now “perpetual” because of inability to successfully resolve conflicts with each other.
