Cheers for comment, bud. It’s something I wrote based off the perspective I had at the time, and in hindsight assess how much of a toll it had on me. Looking back, I can certainly say that as a guy; especially in 20s (you guessed the age right) — and with very little experience with other people (not just women), my whole perception was skewed. Watching porn, I guess that took a toll too. I’m not ashamed to admit that, but definitely did objectify women back then. I’m older now and quite frankly have found the ability to just own up to who I am; back then probably didn’t have much self esteem either.
I grew older and once I just took the whole introspective approach to life, not just with women, my interactions with people improved as a result.
Back then I couldn’t even look people in the eye ordering my morning coffee, now I feel like I can just go up to people and say ‘hello’ with a smile (as lousy as that sounds). Just needed a bit of a confidence boost and the realisation that I didn’t need all that virtual stimulation to fulfil me.
Certainly cleared my head and I find my life to be focused now, I’ve gone on to achieve better; focusing more on my family and making people that care about me proud.
Anyways, thank you so much for the comment bud. Much appreciated.
Good luck to you.
