I AM DREW SIDORA. WORLD AIDS DAY WAS DECEMBER 1ST.. HIV/AIDS IS THE #1 KILLER OF AFRICAN AMERICAN AND LATINA WOMEN IN MY AGE GROUP. PLEASE GET TESTED, YOUR LIFE DEPENDS ON IT.
I wanted to write something that is relevant in my life so I decided to write about a choice that I have decided to make (which at times might not be the easiest). I recently touched upon it during a ustream posting that I made while in Charlotte (Hi my NC fam!! LOL :D)
So without further ado my topic is….Celibacy.
I have been celibate for about a year and a half. I decided to abstain not because i think that sex is bad or immoral. Sex is beautiful, fun and an overall intimate experience. I’ve made that decision with the intentions of having more substance in future relationships without its backbone and common ground being sex alone.
After heartbreak and all the pain from a good relationship gone bad, I had to make some groundbreaking changes. Through this time, I have gained more discipline in my life and strength I had no idea I embodied. Keeping myself as a priority and focusing on following my dreams and passions and really succeeding! I sport a promise ring on my left hand as symbolism (no it’s not an engagement ring! LOL!) I am still very single. So as I wait for my Mr. Right, let me ask you……What are you waiting for??
Mucho Love Always,
