For my Birthday this week HisLordship gave me these socks, as well as few other items which will help to embrace my middle side. I feel like this is the encouragement I need to make more of this part of me and, in talking about it with him today, I realise that it is something that he really wants too. Although I have accepted this part of me, it is still not something that I am entirely comfortable with and I have tended to keep it as a pretty private thing, especially where I thought it may not be well accepted. I am definitely cautious on this one, despite encouragement and acceptance from some very good friends. Sometimes new things can feel like they don’t quite fit but these socks feel good. In them I am cute and carefree and girly and I don’t worry what anyone else thinks.
