Do you recognize this?
How to navigate not wanting to hurt the people we love, while staying aligned with what’s true for us…
And: the recognition that – even when it seems messy or challenging at the time – it’s always way more valuable to have an experience of true self-discovery, than a temporary moment of protected happiness.

    I truly resonated with the spirit of this video. I’ve been contemplating this concept for a while now and like I said on the Youtube clip, the honesty and truth that my Irish bestie feels free enough to share during our rambles allows ME to experience a whirlwind of new emotions, ways of thinking, insights and creativity I’ve never known before … I truly value his presence in my life, even though we live on opposite sides of the world and only converse sporadically.

    I spent the first 6 months of 2015 on a path to health and wellness by becoming vegetarian, exercising and working on loving my body/healing my past traumas. Then I came across my Irish bestie (who is an audio erotica author) and since then, we’ve talked about our worlds, our creative passions, our spiritual journeys etc. Through him, I started exploring avenues to my spirit and sexual self, which put me on a path that led to Layla and now to you :) Life is pretty exciting right now I gotta say xo
