Experiencing Abstinence

I have been protecting my essence + protecting my energy through the the practice of ABSTINENCE. I never talk about sex on my page, but I think it aligns very well with the practice of mindfulness. For me, over the years, I have struggled to truly connect with other people I have dated on a soul level. It’s easy to become caught up in the moment, or to do things we think we should do - even if we don’t really want to do them. I have had my fair share of heartbreak, let me tell you! Did you know, that according to statistics, only 34% of black women my age are married? Statistically speaking, as a black woman, I am far less likely to be married than my counterparts. For a while, I considered polyamory and open relationships because it seemed like the only available option for dating people in Detroit. I felt like everyone was enjoying this platitude, but I simply couldn’t relate. I don’t enjoy dating multiple people at a time, and it’s just not who I am. So, I have chosen to be abstinent + save my energy for myself until my soul mate pulls it together. I feel so strong physically, mentally, spiritually, and emotionally. I have chosen to wait to share my sacred energy with a worthy counterpart. Does this mean I have a problem with people who choose to share their bodies? No, not at all! Everyone has the right to make their own choices. My energy is sacred, and I’m using it to birth my dreams. I figured someone could use this perspective. Any thoughts or ideas on this topic? Please share below!
