Yeah I wouldn't be submissive to a manager at work. Now I have to do what they tell me to do because I don't want to be fired but doing what they tell me to do doesn't make me submissive to them right?
This Camp leader person you're talking about, I know he can send you home and that's like a normal consequence but would you submit to being spanked by him if that was allowed? That's a whole other level of submission that's way more deep than submitting by doing something he told you to do.
I need to change the title of this topic but I don't know how to 😉.
Pookie you really had me thinking about it being a gift we give to someone. Never thought of that but yes I see what you mean. It is a gift and should be appreciated by the person you give it to.
The way it is supposed to work out tis that you are submissive to anybody higher up the ladder (aka food chain) than you., and everybody below you does the same to you. Plus it is good manners to respect someone you just met for the first time. That doesnt mean everybody higher up the ladder is entitled to spank you!
Submitting is a very powerful gift, and only you can give that gift to somebody else. If it is taken, or forced, then its not submitting at all.
I've never felt like anyone has used my submissive nature against me but I suppose that's possible. It could happen and I might not even know it.
You said you wouldn't be submissive to a manager at work oh but you still have to do what she tells you to do. I guess it's not the same as submitting to a parent.
I guess I'm not really submissive to just anyone. At camp we have counselors and we have the camp leader. The Camp leader is the only one who can punish us by sending us home so I am submissive to him for that reason but also because he's super authoritative but in a nice way.
Maybe your mom is going on the bond that you and Jimdad had built going into the engagement/wedding? I know the two of you were talking over things and it seemed to help when the actual wedding day and "new" family came to be full-time. Seeing that y'all got along so well and seemed to be in a good place, she has let things go accordingly?
Mom accepts me for who I am for the most part. The honeymoon isn't over between her and Jimdad (dad #2) so she doesn't say anything about him spanking me. I know that's odd for a mother to not have anything to say about her new husband spanking her teen daughter but that's how it is. A couple of my friends asked me how mom felt about that and I told them what I told you.
You can be a strong woman and still be submissive. Being submissive doesn't mean you let people mistreat you.
