There was a lot of talk about stress during the US elections. People felt polarized and unable to cope with potential results or with other people’s online behavior.
One of the suggestions for calming down was positive self-talk. Psychology Today gave this example:
“I care about you and am here with you. I’ll stay close to you every step of the way. No matter what happens, I’m right here with you, and we’ll get through election day together.”
We immediately saw the benefits of this when applied to ourselves sexually.
If you have been dumped by someone, or feel rejected by someone or if you are struggling with any sort of low self-esteem issue self-talk is a wonderful way to bring you back to you.
Other people can’t ever make you feel anything. Stand for yourself. Love yourself. Tell yourself you are worth it.
Then masturbate! Give yourself the gift of your own body.
