Turning Red

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdKzUbAiswE In the middle of a movie that talks about a girl finding her place and owning her own truth I found connection in the way ABDLs search for acceptance and understanding with ourselves and those around us.  While no story or relationship can be completely apples to apples I feel there are some common … Continue reading Turning Red

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

Not really a book review.. The Midnight Library – The choices we make

Audible recommended a book to me recently after finishing up Project Hail Mary with my kiddos called “The Midnight Library.”  It sounded interesting enough so I downloaded it and began giving it a listen.  It is a shorter book so I figured it would be fairly easy to get through, and not lose track of … Continue reading Not really a book review..

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

Loving myself – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 8

Life is hard.  One of the ah-ha moments I’ve had as a parent is that my parents were in the same boat as I was.  The boat of unpreparedness and sometimes complete inability to be ready for a situation that life presents.  Life is something that we learn in the moment, and sometimes it is … Continue reading Loving myself – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 8
