Sometimes my mouth or mind doesn’t have filters and being a blogger, it isn’t necessarily a good thing, because you get so tempted to say what you see or feel – well, I do anyway. What I’m going to say now, comes from a good place and with all due respect. I guess you could say in a way, this is me thinking out loud! So be warned as I am going to be judgemental. Here goes…why is it that you look at someone and think, “she didn’t get any?” Have you ever felt that about anyone?
I recently spent a few hours at my local salon doing my hair and nails. Whilst I was there, another patron walked in. I noticed the whispers from the staff and the body language changed – it was not a warm welcome.
After an hour of being in her midst, I understood the reaction from the staff. They feared her. She was extremely unfriendly, stubborn, non-responsive and had that look on her face that appeared as a superiority complex to me. Some people enter a room and you feel so excited by their presence! With her, there was an evident sigh of relief when she left. Quite honestly, she looked to me as if she was sexually frustrated.
This reminded me of a few people that I used to work with, they used to come to work having that same look and I used to wish that they got some! Seriously, when they did, they came bouncing into the office, which was such a pleasant feeling opposed to that frustrated look. Even I got excited for them!
Guys and girls, sexual frustration is a real thing! Not only is it a real thing but also a serious thing! If you’ve been or are sexually active and on the days that you don’t get some…I’m sure you will agree that you feel frustrated, even without realising it. Then when it happens…crash…. boom….bang! You feel alive again! It can be seen on your face and you walk with a spring in your step! You have a sigh (or many more) of relief and you wonder why you didn’t do that sooner, right?
Housework. Day job. Working after hours. Stress at the office. Raising kids stress. Cold weather. Financial stress. Weight gain. Low self-esteem. I could go on…these are just some of the things that get in the way and distract us from that much needed physical bonding time.
If you’ve been following my blog for a while now, you will know that I am a huge fan of the Five Love Languages book by Gary Chapman. You’re probably also tired of me referring to it…and I can’t at all promise that I’m not going to refer to it again.
One of the love languages is “Physical touch” – some people respond more to physical touch and as a result, they have a deep desire to express themselves by being intimate with each other. Whilst you may love a gift, they will love the physical touch more – if their love language is physical touch.
It is therefore important that this area of your life doesn’t take a back seat. Being married or having children isn’t an excuse as to why you don’t do it as often as you used to. IF this is the case, something needs to change because chances are that either you or your partner or both of you are sexually frustrated!
No one likes to or wants to admit that; but we are human beings and as such we have desires, sexual desires. If these desires are not met, we feel, we become, and we look frustrated. This frustration can even cause us to be impatient, moody and all sorts of negative things. It can eat you up on the inside. It can make you bitter, to the point you feel oppressed. Relationships and marriages end because of a lack of intimacy/physical touch.
Don’t become that sexually frustrated parent who takes their frustration out on their kids. Don’t also become that frustrated colleague that no one enjoys having around in the office. Don’t also be that frustrated customer that makes everyone else feel miserable. I know this almost sounds like a joke, but I am not joking and if you are reading this and going through this, you are probably in tears because you know this reality. You CAN change that.
