Not even for you

27 Jan

Cuffs_by_grafzahl

I cannot change the way that I am.

It s not a whim, a fashion, a style.  It is not act, a pose, an affectation. It is not a sham, a fake, a masquerade. It is not some elaborate pretence.

I have not adopted a persona to attract or to seduce.

The word Dominant does not define me. It is simply a way of translating what I have always been into something that can almost be understood.

I cannot alter, modify, change, reshape, or reorient myself.

Not without betraying every thought, desire, belief, sinew and fibre of my being.

This is me.

I can never compromise.

Not even for you.

    Love it. To be what one is…well, that is the hardest thing to be. 🙂 And the easiest…when one finally does become that.

    Wonderful piece of writing, as usual! To accept oneself as one is, to be at peace with that – it’s so important and yet can be so hard to do!

    nor should you. we are a collection of intrices that impart but do not define our whole existence. eloquent as ever and a great picture choice. X

    There are no stronger handcuffs than the ones we place ourselves in the name of trying to please another.

    Do not change. It is a comfort to be sure of who we are, even when who we are brings tumult. I am still working on this. I applaud your bravery for being true to yourself.

    one should never be expected to change by the one he loves….or expect someone you love to change themselves… because that would be loving something he is not

    Reblogged this on The Eclectic Poet and commented:
    This piece kept calling me back. The words were resonating, aligning with events in my life the last couple days. The context is very different but the last three lines, well that’s what she said…

    No one is worth changing the core of who you are. I hope you never change.
    Follow your bliss.
