Tuesdays with Nina: Attitudes, Beliefs and Intentions

Victoria Victoria
Did you watch this week's Tuesdays with Nina? It was my favorite one yet!

I think Nina really struck a chord with this one. Attitude definitely affects the way we see everything, the way we react, the way we even hear others. Similarly, intentions color everything that we do. I am big believer in sincerity and can tell when someone is not sincere - so that leads me to deduce that they do not have the best intentions....see where I'm going here? There are many many cliche sayings about intentions, but they do inform our behavior - far more than we are usually conscious of.

I know when I was younger, I hid my feelings, my intentions because of intimacy concerns - I was a guarded girl! Have you or do you sometimes keep your intentions to yourself? Are you having sex for reasons other than what your partner knows? Do you have to struggle against attitudes that conflict with what you know you really want?

I dunno about all the intentions stuff but I definitely appreciated that she mentioned how we often have to go against what we've been taught by parents and community to do what makes US happy.

Nina rocks. Seriously. I just want to spend days talking to her!

This is such a great series! We do often have to go against what we've been taught.

Even though the poly mantra is communication, communication, communication sometimes it is hard to communicate my sexual needs to my partners. I'ts hard to overcome the lessons my parent's taught about what makes a "good girl" and it's hard to overcome the prolems I have had in the past when I asked for what I wanted or needed. It's been such a long bumpy road with Sigel that sometimes we just have to sit back and reiterate how important it is that we don't make assumptions about what the other person is thinking or feeling. Sometimes I fond myself keeping m6y intentions to myself and then resenting the fact that my needs are not being met! I just have to take a moment and pep talk myself before approaching the person, or issue, who I am avoiding and just coming out with it. *Sigh* Sometimes it's all just very complicated...
