How would you describe your submissive self?
The sixth question for focus as part of our submissive reflection is How would you describe your submissive self? I think that there can be a lot of pressure to present your submission as being one way or another, for the sake of others. Clearly there is no right or wrong here, although sometimes what we read can suggest that there is. We are all different and, as such, our submissive selves will differ.
Growth is so much part of submission and a D/s relationship and, as a result, we are continually learning more about who we are and how we work. I know that a lot of submissives will say that D/s allows them to be the best version of themselves. Not necessarily a different version, but one that sits more with how they see themselves and who they want to be. Reflecting on your submissive self, and thinking more about not just who you are but who you want to be, should allow you to set some action points to help you going forward.
As always, you are free to interpret the prompt as you want: we are all different and will experience our submission, and interpret things in different ways so feel free just to run with it. Why not just start writing and see what comes?
How do I take part?
Please check out the rules and then take part by adding your post using the linky tool at the bottom of the page. Remember to display the Tell Me About … Submissive Reflection badge (found on the main page) on your post, and please comment on the other posts and promote on social media where possible.
For anyone who is new to linking to memes and projects and is confused about how to add a badge or link up, Marie has written a great post over on Blogable, Adding a meme badge and linking your post to a linkup which will tell you exactly what to do.
Tell Me About …. is about creating a resource so if people wish to link more than one relevant post or link an older post, or return to add a newer one, that is great.
This topic will remain open.
A plea to bloggers to join us
When I am looking for information it is important to me to find writing by someone I can relate to. I hope that in creating these projects we can not only share information and experience, but also discover writing by others who we feel echo some of the same thoughts and feelings. For that reason, it is a community project which is made better by the different voices who become part of it. So basically, we want you!
