body hair/body care
Got my whole torso waxed, front & back, plus arms, in addition to my usual legs. I just love having my arms bare. Not quite sold on chest but loving my belly a lot more now. And not to mention the fun stuff I can give myself permission to wear now..
My spouse has been quite understanding, which is a much-welcome surprise.
discussing childhood trauma
I am slowly unpacking childhood trauma from being compelled to absolutely obey everything my parents, counselors, and social workers told me to do, under threat of being sent to foster care and juvenile detention.
I didn't listen to my parents, they were no longer credible authorities after having broken the marriage. Then the state stepped in and the pressure was on.
Today this looks like me dismissing my wants because "I wont die if I dont get them" and "I wont be difficult, dont reject me."
