Well, thanks to my ever so wise friends J & J, no, you know what, it isn't. I have confidence about my abilities in all other aspects of my life. My job, oh hell yea, I have confidence there. It is where I feel the most confident and comfortable. My family status, I love my crazy fucked up family more than ever, especially now that I am more accepting of everyone, including my own, flaws. My love life/relationship.....that is a work in progress, but being in therapy for two years, I have definitely made some improvements. But as Jodie said, Great relationships don't start out being sexual, they just don't. Regrettable situations certainly do. And that made me reexamine my past. All of my relationships have started out quickly in the sex area. Part of it is that I am comfortable with my sexuality and am older, but I KNOW I am not comfortable with my body image, so why rush things. If there is to be sex involved, let it be after I am comfortable with said person, because then I can be sure that it is me that they are attracted to and not just a couple of fucks. Because again, as I was wisely told, I am worth more than that.
I would rather be alone with my self respect. Honestly. And like I said the other day, if I don't believe it, well then practice and repetition. I will get there eventually. I am sure that she doesn't realize it, but Jodie is in my head, in a good way all the time. I don't know, truly what I would do without her (and several others that live no where near me) friendship. I am a better person today because of it.
