I don't have a DD relationship despite having advocated it since before I knew what to call it. I don't seem to have much to offer but maybe that's just me and I need to own that.
I just wanted to say thank you to Lauren and Sassyclouds and to the founders of this forum. I really appreciate being here, despite my doubts about it all.
I have not had the opportunity to get to know you however one thing I have come to learn about this community is that everyone belongs... no matter what stage your relationship is at or how you practice the lifestyle or desire to practice you definitely belong within this community.
What I have learned is that those that belong to this community are accepting of people who are in various stages
You don’t have to be spanked to be able to share relational concerns. You have something to contribute 🥰
Please do not feel as though you have nothing to help with
I hope that you feel welcome here
The thing is I do feel welcome here. I know I'm welcome here. But my life experience always has that stinking demon on my shoulder telling me the opposite and it's relentless, sometimes getting the better of me.
I had a particularly rough couple of days and stayed away from here. And I come back to this kindness!
So having soundly been put in my place , thank you, thank you, thank you!
