Inhibitions aren’t all bad. For instance, just because a woman is blocking the WHOLE ice cream case, doesn’t mean you should run your cart into her. Repeatedly. Inhibitions serve a purpose.
Until they fucking don’t.
When I was, well, not old, my sister and I listened to the Purple Rain soundtrack a MILLION fucking times. Remember Apollonia 6? Yeah, we practiced the ‘Sex Shooter’ song until we had it down cold. There’s a part of the dance where they say ‘Come on, kiss the gun’ and they touch….well….they touch their crotch. I would NEVER touch my crotch. I would always just touch my upper leg. It used to piss Middle Sister OFF. She would TOTALLY touch her crotch and was actually kind of offended that I wouldn’t touch my own crotch.
Fast forward..well…decades and a few years..and I will touch my fucking crotch whenever I fucking want.
Losing some inhibitions is a good thing. Not that I’m suggesting playing with yourself in public or anything..I’m just saying..if the dance requires some crotch touching, just fucking do it.
Middle Sister will COMPLETELY kick my ass for saying this..but now? She has more inhibitions than I do.
One of the things I have enjoyed the very most about aging is losing my inhibitions. I like saying what is on my mind. I adore not having to put makeup on to go to the store. And I absolutely NEED to like myself the way I am right now. No inhibitions. Every sore muscle..every weak muscle..and all the bumps and bulges.
If I don’t love who I am right now and accept myself, then I am not going to move forward. In order to do that, I need to keep my inhibitions in check.
This is why I am writing this post. DO NOT WAIT until just before you turn the new 30 to figure this out.
Do it now.
You want to go to the gym but you are worried that the hot guy, or even worse, the very fit hot girl, will look down on you. Because, and I am talking to my gender, we all know it’s the scorn of other women that hurts more than anything.
Fuck them. So you have a few bulges. Or you have a ton of bulges…or you have ALL bulges. You are exactly who you are. You can love yourself right now..and if anyone has any judgement of you? Well then..fuck them right in the face.
You do what you need to do to move forward. Don’t worry about what anyone else thinks. And for fuck’s sake, don’t let your own thinking be your undoing.
Be WHO YOU ARE.
Like WHO YOU ARE.
It’s not the other people who hold us back.
Take my hand..shed your negative self-talk..
And touch your own damn crotch.
