What does it mean to be emotionally modest?
Does it mean you never speak to anyone of the opposite sex? Does it mean you avoid all contact with guys? Does it mean you're scared to death of even opening up any emotions to young men (or young women if you're a guy)?
I don't think so!
Being emotionally modest mean you understand your own boundaries. You understand what's appropriate to share and what is inappropriate to share. You know your own heart and motives behind being emotionally connected with someone.
It takes work to be emotionally modest. It's not easy. It's totally counter-cultural! But oh so worth it!
