What if you felt less guilty

I have been listening to the @audible_com audiobook of Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life by @enagoski. I have 29 minutes and 46 seconds left, and I can tell I am loving this book because I am delaying listening to that last bit. I just don’t want it to end. 📚⁣

I feel like reading it I have learned about sexuality but also about being a person who was raised and identifies as female in our culture. For instance, I am realizing how much I follow up experiences of pleasure with feelings of guilt. That chocolate was delicious. I shouldn’t have eaten it. It was so nice to have that time away from the kids. I’m horrible for wanting to be away from my kids. And on and on. Today, I am inviting the thought: What if I was less guilty about what gave me pleasure?⁣

feel less guilty about what gives you pleasure
