I have been making some updates to this site the last couple of days and just realized that I haven’t written a blog post for over 2 months. Unbelievable! I mean, I get lots of satisfaction from writing. It helps with all kinds of things – helping people, SEO, creating community, etc. yet I went without.
I was too busy.
I kept putting it off. I forgot about it. When I did think of it the time wasn’t right.
Does any of this sound familiar to you? You put off something you know you like and benefit from due to seemingly good reasons and before you knew it a very long time has passed?
This happens a lot with sex and intimacy. The obstacles are different for different people but the result is the same – a feeling of having missed out. Other feelings are overwhelm at the prospect of getting started up again, embarrassment or shame for for having dropped the ball, anger and resentment at self for failing… lots of negatives.
Acknowledge and move on.
As much as every day can be a new beginning, so can every hug, every show of affection, every kind word. Do what you need to do to start over.
Having a hard time with that? That’s where someone like me comes in. Find someone to talk to that can help you process through the crap and start fresh. Someone who can help you identify your story or programming and break it up if it’s not working for you.
That’s the process I’m going through now with all my websites. I’m grateful I don’t have to do that with my sex and sexuality (this time).
