What going without sex has taught me (by Almaz Ohene)
Morning all. I’ve got a guest writer for you today. Almaz Ohene responded to my recent call-out for LGBTQ+ people who are single, which some of you may have seen on Twitter. I was looking for good people to interview but when I saw Almaz’s work I asked if I could commission her to write something instead. I’m thrilled she agreed.
I found what she has written for us so interesting, especially how by embracing temporary celibacy for want of a better word, she has seen her creativity, connection to loved ones and self-compassion flourish. This is one of my favourite parts:
By practising intentional communication, setting and keeping boundaries in place, and showing up for myself, I’ve been able to heal and grow in way I hadn’t dreamed possible.
Love that so much. I hope you all enjoy reading!
Have a good week,
