• From my own interpretation Shadow, I'd say emotional distancing, can describe something that can happen to you, and something you can do yourself in order to protect yourself, whereas emotional withdrawal, is a way of describing something that only happens to you, be it because it triggers you, or because this is a programmed response, or caused by depression. What are your thoughts?

      That’s interesting to know. I come across people who are either emotionally distant or withdrawn. I’ve had poor relationships with people in the past and it was usually me that got hurt emotionally. I might appear as emotionally distant but I am sensitive to emotions if that makes sense

      It makes absolute sense.
