Back to number 1-I was celibate a few years ago for a year and began dating someone. On our 2nd date, things happened. We lasted 6 months and he moved away with no concern or consideration for me or what we were doing.
So I became celibate again for another year and met someone. I thought with this person being 8 years older than I, that he'd be in a different space than the previous fella. Nope, not even.
AT this point, I realized it was me. We lasted 8 months and really 6 of those was just passing time waiting for him to call it quits.
Realizing that I've been making the same relationship mistakes and choosing the same "type" of person brought me to number 2-time to work on my self-development and my unresolved issues and past traumas. When I was 15, my mother let her boyfriend have sex with me. Any protest on my part was met with belts, curses and fists.
This lasted until I was It put me in the position of "my body is not my body" and saying "no" to a man brings me back to this place of why fight it, it will happen regardless. So I've entered into a lot of relationships like this as evidenced by my last two relationships.
Over 20 years later and I still have not figured out how to reclaim my power. So, I said, I have to take myself out of this game. So I said, I have to be celibate and really figure out me and what is best for me to heal. I have my good days and I have my bad days.

So, I said, I have to take myself out of this game. So I said, I have to be celibate and really figure out me and what is best for me to heal. I have my good days and I have my bad days. So reading this book was right on time for me. I marked so many great passages in the book but unfortunately I loaned it out which I never do, but she caught me at a moment when I was in my feels. Maybe I can come back and do an edit when I get my book back.
When you engage in a relationship with someone and you let that person know sex is off the table up front, it will let you see where that person is at mentally. They will either say, that is not how they are living and walk away or they will say they too are on that journey and continue to see you.
BUT there are always those that say, they understand, but then try their best to get you to cave. They enjoy the challenge and those are the ones you need to walk away from. I want a relationship built on a solid foundation of trust, respect, intellectual compatibility, emotional intimacy, with similar interests, morals and goals.
This book is great and offers a lot of tips to those who are curious about practicing the wait. It is also encouraging to those who are on the journey and just need a little motivation to know they are not alone.
For me the wait isn't about a husband but for me to find my purpose, love me and heal.
I think once I become a whole and healthy person then I can attract to me someone who on the same page as I.
