Inspired by Mrs. Fever’s prompt Open ….
This makes me think of so many things…
I’m open to someone finding a way to heal the ulcer on my leg. Nearly two years of trying everything under the sun has helped. I’m quite tired of the hassles and pain. I have better things to do with my time.
I’m open to a much more acceptability to nudity, positive sexuality and body acceptance; including the idea that female breasts are no more offensive, including breast feeding, than men’s breasts are. Breasts should only be sexualized by the people who have them, no matter if it’s a man or a woman. For others to objectify another person because it gives them a hard on, is not acceptable. And men feeling the entitlement of grabbing women’s breasts and ass without permission, is criminal. It’s okay to become aroused when looking at someone who turns you on. Acting on it without consent is not.
I am open to giving Conservatives what they want and need to feel comfortable as long as they don’t force those mentalities on others. They tend to complain that Liberals are forcing their beliefs on others by legalizing same sex marriage or allowing abortion, which isn’t true. They are not being told they themselves MUST do these things, they are just being told that they can’t stop others from doing these things.
I am finally open to sharing my thoughts, feelings, ideas and opinions, without the filters that I used to use. I was always afraid of offending people, even when they had no qualms of offending me. Once I removed those filters, some interesting things happened. Number one was that the night terrors that has plagued me for over a year are now gone. Apparently the frustration I was feeling was coming out in my dreams and during sleep. Three topics that I now talk about and write about; religion, politics and sex, are freely shared, not only here on my blog, but on other social media as well. And guess what? The world didn’t come to an end. I didn’t even get the push back from conservative friends and family that I expected. I imagine they just blocked me.
I’m finding the more open I am about everything, the more secure and confident I feel about it all. I am striving to learn to be even more open minded as I go. It’s too bad it took me so long to learn this, but better late than never.
