One of the things I love about my relationship with June is the opportunities that we have to grow together. I think growth is one of the more understated and under-appreciated elements in a D/s relationship. Sometimes the journey towards the growth of a healthy relationship is not an easy one, and I am almost certain that this fact scares some folk.
Being in a leadership position means so much more than having the final say, and holding myself accountable for the growth and direction of the relationship is something that I continuously challenge myself with. When my work schedule evens out in several months (seriously it's been murderous!!!! 36 hour shifts*) I hope to go into more detail with frequent post for the fellas on leadership, dominance, and the lost art of being a gentleman.
I value June's feedback so much, and I would never dream of smothering her or being too overbearing, but the health of our relationship has to come first and I strive to keep that at the forefront of our lives. Ultimately though, I think that is also something that is under-addressed sometimes is that in a D/s relationship that both parties must serve each other and both must sometimes put aside their own desire for the benefit of the relationship as a whole... I love June, and everything about our relationship is a beautiful blessing.
I could probably go on like this forever, but I won't. With the schedule I have, rest comes at a premium, but I promise you that you will all be hearing more from me soon!
