Ownership is not limited to material things. It can also apply to points of view. Once we take ownership of an idea — whether it’s about politics or sports — what do we do? We love it perhaps more than we should. We prize it more than it is worth. And most frequently, we have trouble letting go of it because we can’t stand the idea of its loss. What are we left with then? An ideology — rigid and unyielding.
if you had enough and are serious about recovery call now!

To all the guys that think “No” means try harder 👎🏾 I really wanted to use another finger, but you might interpret the message the wrong way 😒
I use to think that a guy constant sexual pursuit was his way of saying he really liked me. I didn’t know that it was really his way of saying he didn’t respect me, especially if I told him I wanted to wait.
I wasn’t taught. I had to learn #boundaries
. This ends with me, breaking this curse off of my family forever ⛓
"I take intentional periods of abstinence to really chill out. I call it "bubble time.” I bury myself in work and just process whatever I have going on. However this past year, I was abstinent because I was sick. Not only did my illness throw me physically, but emotionally. I was retaining large amounts of fluid in my body, so it was very difficult to do anything, even feel a touch. I've been improving due to the treatments I'm currently on. It's a work in progress. Over the year of abstinence, it's definitely allowed me to focus on physical well-being, but also my emotional well-being. I’ve been working on getting my confidence back and making improvements to make sure that my health and mental wellness are in the right places.
Whether I’ve been intentionally abstinent, unintentionally abstinent, or sexually active, I don’t have any regrets in my sex life. It’s important to me to not have any regrets in what I do sexually. The mistakes that I’ve made have been to mold and shape me as the person I am today. I know that there is a possibility that I have hurt people in the midst of growth and for that, I’ve apologized to those individuals. Sex is something that is constantly evolving for me."
Pour beaucoup, le 14 février correspond à la fête de l'amour (la stvalentin). Mais pour moi, elle symbolise ma date d'abstinence, le 14 février 2018 je me suis choisi; j'ai pris le choix d'arrêter de consommer, de me donner de l'amour, de mettre mes limites, d'apprendre qui je suis de plus en plus chaque jour et en faisant tout ça chaque jour et me disant que juste pour aujourd'hui je ne consommerai pas, ça fait exactement 1an que j'ai rien pris du tout ni drogue ni alcool.. Je suis vraiment fière de moi et ce n'est que le début!

Why Waiting Works community, it would mean the world to me if you helped me get this message out. If you or someone you know is single, or in a physical relationship and not yet married, I would love for you to pick up a copy of my book (link in bio) @robbkowalski..
“This book def changed my mindset about waiting. Not only that, but how discipline and living a life WORTH living is so important. Thank you Rob, you have changed my life for the better. I can not wait to start my 6 month challenge and see what great results may follow” Amazon Customer #whywaitingworks
Sex • The amount of mixed messages we have received around sex stems from erotic to plain dirty; do it, don’t do it, don’t talk about it, be fluid and free, body as many people as you can, all the way to ‘don’t even think about it’. Which message is right?!? •
Our very own @kimanisioux
talks a little about the message she received growing up in the church. “Don’t have sex.” Did that ever stop us?? 😂🤷🏻♀️•
Perhaps we need to do better. Perhaps it starts in circles with broken women who have shameful stories to tell about this very taboo topic. Stories that include being touched in ways we never asked to be nor ever granted permission. Stories about passion and lust that we had no business allowing into our one-bedroom apartments. Testimonies that unearth family members who should have protected us and didn’t. — The bad news is that the abuse of sex happens way more often than it should. The good news is that a small circle exists where you can share your ‘shameful’ story in a shameless way. We allow our bodies to be exposed in all sorts of ways, but when it comes to our hearts, we are afraid. God wants to heal your heart. It’s your turn to heal!
