Do you accept and/or expect discipline or punishments as a part of your submission? How do you feel about it?I both accept and expect discipline and correction. Daddy dislikes the term punishment because it is negative, he prefers correction. Correction speaks to a positive change, resetting, clearing the air and wiping the slate clean. I personally do not understand how you can have this kind of relationship without discipline and correction. For me that would not work. But I need that.
I am grateful that Daddy loves me enough to provide guidance, and even when it is difficult for him, to provide correction. Aside from play, I need what some call maintenance/submission spankings to keep me grounded. I need to feel Daddy's authority, and I need to feel and express my submission. In times of high stress I need stress-relief/submission spankings. And if I have done something which is harmful to myself or our relationship, something disrespectful, I need to be corrected, or it will eat at me. I need to pay across Daddy's lap and I need the forgiveness it brings.
It seems incongruous, but I have seen it expressed on other blogs. The fact that he does this for me, the fact that he willingly leads our relationship and provides structure, discipline and correction makes me feel incredibly loved, cherished and safe.
