Today’s introspective question is reflecting upon how I came to learn that I’m a Little. Everyone comes into the “discovery” that they are a Little in different ways. This is simply my story.
A few years ago, I met a man who would open my eyes to the world of BDSM in a way I had never known before. If you had asked me about BDSM up until that point, I would have likely described bondage and masochism. I knew absolutely nothing about the Cg/l lifestyle or that it even existed. I came from a “vanilla” background and my previous partners had all been vanilla as well. Suddenly I met a man who told me that he was a dom. He didn’t come right out and say that he was a Dom. He simply began to teach me about the world of domination and submission. I’ll never forget those words that he said to me one night: “I think you’re more of a submissive then you realize”.
I felt the breath in my throat pause and constrict. I was a submissive? Me?? But I’m a fiery Irish-Italian girl who has always spoken her mind! And yet…. I found myself wanting to submit. I found that the way he commanded me, made me yearn to obey. It was a sensation that was thrilling and altogether different. A difference in beliefs and how a dominant should treat a sub, led to the end of the relationship. But like a person starving for water, I began to devour every book on BDSM and Domination/submission (D/s) that I could find. It was through research that I discovered the various paths of submission. A submissive is as varying and different from one person to the next. And then I began to read about DDLG.
“I’m a Little….” I remember thinking. Every part of me that had been dormant for most of my life came rushing to the surface. The way that I normally thought, behaved, and the things I enjoy suddenly made sense. There was a name for people like me: I’m a Little! I had found my tribe. 🙂
As I moved into a deeply satisfying and fulfilling D/s relationship with my Daddy (and husband) I began to explore every aspect of myself. I could wear onesies freely and without fear of judgment. I had met my match in a person who, being the way I am as a playful, joyful, and silly person with a huge “inner child”, actually wanted me to be that way! He wanted to guide me, teach me things, and help shape me to who I am today. He wanted to be my dominant. And together, we bonded and became one. ❤
So that is the story of how I discovered that I’m a Little. It is my hope that through this blog and resources, that you learn more about the Cg/l lifestyle and how us, Littles, think and operate. I hope you gain a deeper appreciation and understanding for the Little lifestyle so that we can pay it forward and lift each other up! 🙂 Have a beautiful day everyone and I’ll see you back here tomorrow!
