The 2 Hour Rule

Last year, i learned a wonderful lesson about self control, self awareness and personal responsibility.  A very wise Dom friend taught it to a very powerful sub friend and she passed it on to me.  It is called The Two Hour Rule.

The Two Hour Rule is very simple.  If you are upset, you do NOT post anything about it on social media right away.  Instead, wait two hours and allow yourself to calm down before inviting the world into your drama.  

For one thing, most people don’t really care and for another, the ones that do care only care because it gives them ammunition to use against you.  

If after two hours you still want to post it, wait another two hours.  If after four hours you STILL want to post it, find a trusted friend with whom you can speak in confidence. 

In short, don’t blast yourself, your friends, family and dynamic all over the internet.

The 2 Hour Rule has been INVALUABLE to me as i am learning to become a more self aware and obedient submissive.  What do you think about this rule?  What are your thoughts about airing your personal business on social media in general?

Are You Devoted To Your Submission?

Let’s talk about devotion to our submission…

What does that sentence mean to you?  And no, you don’t have to have a D-type to be devoted to your submission.  You need drive and dedication…in whatever form that takes for you at any given time.

Some people think an s-type isn’t even an s-type without the D-type counterpart.  I think that’s bullshit.  I am not a “natural submissive”, bowing & scraping to anyone who calls themselves a D-type.  I am a caregiver, both professionally & personally…but even without that aspect, i am still a submissive because it’s a basic part of who i am.

I think this is an important distinction because how can i devote myself fully to my Daddy if i can’t even devote myself to myself?  How can i stand, afraid and seemingly alone, in the dark times at His side, if i can’t even stand up for myself?  My D-type doesn’t define or complete me, He compliments me, enhances me.  

Are you able to stand secure in your own submission, on your own?  If not, how can you think you will be able to stand by Another, forsaking your will for Theirs?

Thoughts…?
