"You're amazing: your openness, honesty and courage is both beautiful & astounding. Just wanted to tell you that."
Occasionally one of my followers will tell me they enjoy my tweets and I so love hearing from them. While I can never truly hear just how fabulous I am enough, this one was different to me because he touched on openness, honesty and courage.
The truth is, I don't say everything that comes into my brain on Twitter, though to my followers it may seem that way, and I surely don't blog everything. I omit things to protect my identity and occasionally withhold experiences I'm not ready or willing to share.
However, for the most part, I really don't hold back much. I have a softer side. And I know it's probably a little puzzling for some, other Dommes in particular, that I so often show my soft underbelly.
I am human. I make mistakes. I experience heartbreaking disappointment. There's a lot that I don't know. And I'm learning more about myself and the lifestyle all of the time.
What I do know is this: I am Dominant and I'm secure in that Dominance. Baring it all for my readers and followers doesn't diminish my strength because my strength comes from within.
I'm going to continue to share lots of things with my readers and followers, good and bad, happy and sad. Does that make me as courageous as @boypet seems to think? Maybe. But I don't know any other way to be.
