Ties That Bind

How important is it that the people in your life understand, acknowledge, approve, and accept, the decisions that you make?

Is it important for your loved ones to have a general understanding of what is is you do and why you're doing it? I have been milling this question around for the past few weeks...

I have major default mechanicism, a void rather for acceptance in all aspects of my life. "What would my family say" is always in my mind. How will they respond if I were to say this ____, or how would they feel if they knew that I ____whatever.

I am too freaking conscious to make sure that others see me in a certain way. I've always had this desire to please others...to make sure they they were happy and even if I wasn't I gave a good impression that I was. It is important for me to show that I can strong when it comes down to certain situations and aspects. The reality of it is...I present a tough exterior to all, but underneath I am soft. I am very vulnerable (God I hate that word and feeling). I feel that vulnerabilty is a weakness, and it is important for me to appear strong. But what good is it to appear strong, when I'm not...why do I feel that showing weakness is a character flaw? I think to some its not surprising...to others it may be. Deep down I wasn't...not really and truly happy. But to "save face" I pretended alot, pushed alot of thoughts and feelings down, afraid to express my true self to those that really know me. It was easier to do that, rather than to have and see their looks of disgust for what they feel is my weakness. My family has always wanted folks to be strong, it was and is important to show that strength, and to surpress that weakness...but as we get older, we have to learn a balance. I need to learn how to balance my true self with my true feelings to those that matter the most to me...and that will not be an easy feat...

I have learned that if you are not honest with who you are then your family is loving a stranger.

I know the older you get the more you don't care. It's easier to feel that way the older you get because you are comfortable enough and financially stable enough to handle rejection from your family. When we are younger, we feel we need to have our family members love us and we do everything to please them. We don't want to be abandoned. What we don't realize is that the older our parents get the more they don't want to be abandoned either. The chances of them turning you away are slim.

No matter what you are going through remember that you have earned a place in life and you don't have to please anyone on this earth. I live with the motto, "when you die, you are the only one going in that box so be happy while you are alive".

So Horny...It Hurts!

As usual my discussions stem from random thoughts that I have and from conversations with friends, family, & acquaintances. But we were talking about sex and levels of horniness and one of us spoke up and said, "I'm so horny...it hurts!" (Hmmm...I thought about this and came here...to you...)

Have you ever gotten to the point where you are so horny it hurts! Its a physical ache deep in your bones. Every muscle and sinew, every step, stretch, and run, is so physically excrutiating to the point of being unbearable! You know sometimes your eyes cross, you get bumps on your face, and your nerves are completely on edge. You say your are angry and frustrated when in fact all you need is a little hot monkey sex to get you back in order...In situations like that, your body has a tendency to shut down on itself.

As I write this, I wonder how many of us are so horny that it hurts? I honestly feel that dyck and puzzy are a dime a dozen...anyone, and I do mean anyone, regardless o…

Are Women Whores for Money?

I have been thinking about this topic for a minute and I plan to discuss it at length soon, but for right now, I just have one question, or rather an observation.

Is it me or are women whores for money? Are women whores for a certain lifestyle to the point that they sell their souls to live the good life? They don't care if their man is phucking half of the nation so long as he brings the bacon home to them. They don't care if he looks like the broad side of a bus or the bottom of a shoe, so long as his dollars are long and his pockets are deep. I've heard women say, {self included} that so long as he was making money that he could do any damn thing he wanted...but that is a hypothetical situation. In real life, having dated men with money, I realized one thing - they are the most arrogant assholes around! So I had to say to myself what was more important, that man, that man and his money, that man his money and his lifestyle I was enthralled by, or my self respect. Guess w…
