“My heart is softening” – My wife’s growth

During family scripture study this year we have been discussing the Old Testament.  If your family is anything like mine we have historically focused less on these books in the Bible.  My wife has been doing a great job in helping the children stay consistent in their studies, and we’ve had some discussions outside the … Continue reading “My heart is softening” – My wife’s growth

Now what? – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 13

We did it!  We’ve made it through “You’re Not Broken” or you’ve at least made it through my hopefully coherent ramblings about self acceptance and growth as an Adult Baby Diaper Lover (or ABDL).   My question to both myself, and to you, is “where do we go from here?” What have you learned?  What have … Continue reading Now what? – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 13

Parents looking for answers – You’re Not Alone – Chapter 12

I didn't write near as many notes for this chapter as I read it as many of the others in this book.  For me, I struggled with what perspective and purpose I would take in sharing with those who end up reading.  I, like almost everyone else who will read this, was at one point … Continue reading Parents looking for answers – You’re Not Alone – Chapter 12

Looking at it a little differently – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 11

It was interesting to read this chapter because I was not the target audience.  I had to change the lens in which I saw and consumed the information.  Perhaps this is appropriate because when I shared this part of myself with my wife early on I’m sure she had to do the same.  This is … Continue reading Looking at it a little differently – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 11

Working through uncomfortable growth – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 10

Laying the foundation is essential for success in most of our lives.   Want to be good at the piano?  How often have you practiced your scales, learned to read music, and given the effort necessary for success?   Want to be promoted?  Are you laying the foundation of recognized (and unrecognized) effort to build into the … Continue reading Working through uncomfortable growth – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 10

Secrets, surprises, sharing, and shame – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 9

All ABDLs search for their reason or reasons for wanting to wear a diaper.  Early on in life we are siloed in our own minds, and often shame ourselves because we are so different from the norm that we see around us.  We proceed through childhood with many negative experiences because we don’t understand ourselves, … Continue reading Secrets, surprises, sharing, and shame – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 9

Standing alone, or feeling like we are

In a talk, Thomas S. Monson shares a story of while in the military he felt like he was standing alone. While in formation the leadership began to explain where the various denominations would worship on the military base on Sunday.  A list was ran through, and in time the group shrank.  President Monson came … Continue reading Standing alone, or feeling like we are

Emotions – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 7

We often struggle with our emotions (especially the men who are reading).  Even more interestingly, we struggle with the emotions of others as well.  On top of that fun fact we find that we also confuse emotions and feelings, or even the fact that they are different (a feeling is the acknowledgement of an emotion). … Continue reading Emotions – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 7
