I have so much advice, y'all. Like learn a second language. Try new things. Only engage in consensual sexual behavior. Visit Paris.
But I want to offer more general advice, for all people, at any age, in any stage of life.
What's so cool about literature is how open to interpretation it is. Shakespeare wrote "To thine own self be true" in Hamlet, through the voice of Polonius, speaking to his son Laertes. (Yes, I googled all of this).
My interpretation is this:
Be honest with yourself. Saving coitus for marriage is an arbitrary line along a sexual spectrum, but saving a sexual experience for only my husband is important to me.
Do your own thing. I blog about virginity.
Listen to the counsel of others, but then make your own decisions. My youth pastor in undergrad said masturbation is a sexual sin. I prayed about it. I disagree.
Don't compare yourself to others. Everyone has so many more readers than I do... It's hard to follow my own advice sometimes.
Celebrate your uniqueness. I haven't found another blog that focuses on sexy virginity.
Acknowledge your sameness. We all just want to change the world and connect with other people through our writing.
Never lose sight of who you are. According to Beau, I'm perfect. ♥
What advice do you have for me?
