Meant to send anon: I have a hard time justifying intimacy with my boyfriend because of religious beliefs. I feel a certain type of guilt/shame attached to anything physical. I don't want that, but I also don't want to disobey the morals of my faith
This is tough. In high school, I wasn’t going to have sex until I was married let alone kiss anyone that was not my boyfriend. Regardless of how I felt about it, guilt masked and without question, I was promiscuous for even thinking those thoughts. I was living in a cage but also interpreted things differently then. I look back scared at myself a little. You shouldn’t have to justify or feel guilt for it- that’s all I’m certain of. It’s okay to have the hots for someone. Intimacy is one of the most beautiful things, goodness. Sharing. Do whatever you’re comfortable with though, without pressure. On your own accord, when you feel okay. As long as you’re not hurting anyone. Perhaps you should talk to someone you’re close with because I probably don’t have adequate advice from the religious spectrum. Don’t ignore your feelings though, hear yourself, and strive for your peace. Hope this helps some?
Things are brilliant. Take a chance.
Of course things are brilliant, life is most brilliant. Taking chances are my favourite. Thank you.
I’d love to go out with you but then we’d end up really liking each other and it would turn into a whole thing and you know how things are
i really like the ring you wear. does it have a special meaning?
I wear three. I don’t take them off,ever. They were my grandmother’s rings. She’s one of my heroes. I wish she was alive. A badass in an apron who knew all of importance I would like to acquire or grow into. I’m there, with her.
