Make you Free

Make you free

“No might make them angry but it will make you free.” Nayyirah Waheed

Have you been raised to say yes to everything to please others or maintain a certain image of yourself? This is what my upbringing has been like. Sexually, I didn’t even realize until I was in my 20s that I could actually experience and ask for pleasure. I was socially conditioned to derive satisfaction from satisfying a partner. It took me a while to understand who I was inside, what my needs were and start communicating them. It’s still an on-going learning journey for me. To speak my truth, negotiate what I need and find a balance between giving and receiving.

Keeping in mind we have multiple boundaries to become aware of and feel into – physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, sexual… Are you good at saying No?
