I’m super tired as I write this but I want to get this out and in this space for anyone out there that’s like what I am about to say.
I shouldn’t be on my computer. I should finish the rest of this new series Altered Carbon and be on my merry way, but something is sticking in my mind. So bear with me.
I was on Fetlife the other day, a rare thing I would say, but I was doing some summer cleaning and fixing my ABOUT ME to suit my 2018 self.
I was clearing out the inbox, you know – making things cleaner. When I got to the earliest ones, and clicked on them for a stroll down memory lane – most of the people that really resonated with me had disconnected from Fetlife.
This could be anything. A change, harassment, boredom, a new relationship, fear. But since I am the king of overthinking, I just wanted to say.
I learned a great deal about myself from conversations with these people. I learned what not to do, how to behave, what kind of Dominant I am – because they sat down and talked it through with me.
The point I am trying to make is that YOU never know what kind of difference you will make to those around you, just by talking to them, by listening.
And this can be applied ANYWHERE. At a munch, outside of Fet, outside of the internet. A friend, a worker, an animal – who knows? I don’t. I’m tired.
MORE IMPORTANTLY: You and what you’re doing is a beautiful thing and no one can say a bad word about it. You are your own captain.
Fear of change, of things unknown, is normal. Try to let it roll off your back like water in the shower, because once you step out of that waterfall, you’ll realise you can be fine.
