Just some thoughts that seem to be floating in my head today....
~~Knowing that you are the one in charge, ....but also knowing that submission, freely offered, is a gift to be treasured.
~~Having a hard hand, one that can be used to send a message....but also a soft heart, knowing that hugs, are important also.
~~Listening to your partner....but more importantly hearing what that partner is saying and sometimes not saying.
~~Taking control, being the strong one....but appreciating the strength that is needed to submit.
~~Being wise in making decisions for the two of you....but also using that wisdom to admit mistakes, and offer apologies.
~~Enjoying the many ways your submissive brings you pleasure.....but also realizing that returning that pleasure, brings you both more pleasure.
~~Realizing that what is on the inside is also important....and be willing to put in the hard work necessary to tear down walls, to allow your partner to open up completely.
~~Speaking words that sometimes admonish and urge to better behavior....but also knowing the power of all words, and being sure to add the loving and kind and encouraging words.
~~Proving that You are consistent and trustworthy.....and watching "your other half" become vulnerable and open to You.
~~ Accepting your partner as they are.....but also wanting to make that partner the best they can be.
How do I know all of this.....I am lucky enough to have such a Master!
hugs to all
