In lieu of the date I wanted to make a post that was about luck and being “lucky” in life. When I first began thinking about the work lucky I began typing things I felt I was fortunate enough to have in my life. I am absolutely spoiled and lucky to have the following in my life:
- Spouse – Even before I shared this part of myself with my amazing wife I knew how lucky I was. Her spirit and dedication to her family, her faith, and her profession is something that I admire and look up to. Upon sharing my “big three” with my wife she had her internal struggles and battles. It pains me to know what I put her through as she searched for meaning and understanding with what I had shared with her. With time, that felt like eternities, she found solace through music in who I was.
- ABDL Community – Most ABDLs start off their lives in isolation. We feel so weird, different, aberrant, and at times unacceptable. This is something that most of us are too afraid to share with anyone, and on top of that how could there possibly be anyone else in the world that would CHOOSE to wear a diaper. Eventually we all started searching the Internet, and found a version of what we were experiencing that was not the best representation of who we are. It is hard that the minority of a minority paints the public picture of what we are to the rest of the world. There is so much to what I am as an ABDL, and it wasn’t until the last few years that I truly found community amidst other Adult Babies. It is with these amazing people that I have found more self-acceptance than in the previous decades. Through them I continue to learn and grow.
Am I lucky that I want to wear diapers? No, I don’t think that I am. I don’t think any one of us wishes burdens like this on our lives. Do I think that I am lucky that I have found them and what they do for me? Absolutely.
I am lucky, and thankful, that I have found something that helps me balance. We run many, many different directions in my life and I have found that diapers help me balance in preparation, execution, and recovery from the various events that we either participate in or put on.
I am lucky to have the support of a spouse that is learning and seeing the benefit they do provide me. It wasn’t always like that, but time is helping her see there are positives sides to me wearing a diaper.
I am lucky for the friends that I am making along the way that see past the powder and the padding. The friends that see me for the whole person that I am.
