I took back my body. I took back my time. I decided that if I did feel like sharing them again, I'd do it with people who didn't want exclusive rights. Owning people had become, to me, one of the stupidest ways to relate since, well, slavery. Coupledom shut people out, creating this insular world in which even feelings had to belong to the other person. ("Emotional infidelity"?!)
Love it. Absolutely how I feel too. It helps that I was raised by a hippie mom I think. But freedom is the way to treat yourself. And I think it's ok if you are good at sharing. That makes it balanced.
