Post-Release

... and now?

He released me.

I'm devastated.

I'm not coping. Or, I guess I am. I eat, sleep, go to work, try to interact normally with people. I walk around and everything is different.

I'm grieving for a relationship that was huge to me.

No one tells you how to do this in a Dom/sub context.

How to just be dumped by the guy who was my Dom, my Daddy, my Master. My friend. My lover. Who controlled so many things in my life.

I was honest. Open. I gave him all of me. That's what he demanded. And guess what? He decided he didn't want it.

It's...

My mind spirals. I'm out of control. I cry. I bargain. I overthink it. I spend hours, days, talking about him with my one friend who knows about him. I don't sleep. I alternate between binge eating and talking myself out of it.

And he... ? Is not the man I thought he would be if and when he released me.

  2. I am so sorry...i find this one of the scariest things about giving all of yourself. But, breathe, get through each day one long hour at a time, one small step at a time...not easy, but necessary. And know..I..and many others, are thinking about you and sending you good thoughts and healing whammies.
    Thank you for sharing this..

  3. I'm sorry you are in so much pain. I want to validate that you have figured out something important when you say "he's not the man I thought he would be if and when he released me". Responsible Dominants handle breakups very differently than what you are reporting. They understand the dependency involved in the dynamic, and they take steps to ensure the /s has support. Responsible relationship ending *does* get talked about in M/s circles, I encourage you to find a MAST chapter or come to Master slave Conference over Labor Day. I hope that coming into our circle would give you the context and skills to identify next time someone who is truly worthy of your submission and trust. At minimum, it would give you some support from others - on both sides of the slash - during this difficult time. It could help you heal.

    1. This really helped. It was actually the first time I had thought of what I was going through as kind of normal. So, I've been researching resources, and might look at finding a support chapter. Thank you very much.
