At the end of our meal, we each choose a fortune for the other. The fortune he chose for me turned out to be very apropos. It read as follows:
A leader is a person you will follow to a place you wouldn't go by yourself.
How fitting for our D/s life. I count on Sir to be my leader in as many ways as possible. And yet, without him, I'd make no progress.
Being a submissive, how far can you go without a Dominant? You can try to behave in a submissive fashion. You can do things for others. You can anticipate one's needs. Yet I believe that without a Dominant to be your guide, there's only so far you can take yourself. I prefer to submit to one person. If he did not exist in my life, I wouldn't wish to lead myself. I wish to go with him, together.
To submit, you give yourself over to another. And without that person, to who or what are you actually submitting?
