How do we become who we are meant to be when it is so easy to be sinfully stereotyped and squeeze into the mould others have created for us? The following quote has given me something to mull over. She’s an amazingly inspirational woman! I urge you to click the link and discover more.
The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
When I first started to explore my submission with Sir I had very fixed ideas of how that should look. I believed I fitted with the stereotyped submissive we so often see portrayed in the arts.
It has been almost six years since that time.
I’ve taken so many twists and turns in this kinky world that I sometimes get a little confused. I don’t fit what I initially believed a submissive would look like, those stereotypes are long since outgrown.
I have a strength of character and directness often mistaken for a Dominant streak.
(With a capital D!) And I have, over the years, picked up certain skills. So to the outside world, I may look more D than s. However, when I’m under His care submission engulfs me. It is here that I find calm and an inner peace that quiets my mind and energises my soul. So while I may have dominant traits I am very much his submissive.
With a little flexibility I am painting a richer picture with my life. This is working much better for me than if I were to fit into the incomplete mould.
