Submission? We all have that luxury that distracts us from all the events of the world. I have to connect with some of my friends and even people I don’t know about this. They all rush to work, which is a relief to them.
Well, I have mine too. I like knitting. In addition, I see knitting as a profession that I would love to do whenever I was upset or angry with someone or something to keep my mind active. The fact is, I always feel better after hours of knitting. Sometimes, it is all the fun I needed, and it doesn’t mean I was submissive.
My daughter has coloring books like hers. At first, I did not pay attention because I always thought the drawings were coming as a school assignment. I started to notice when I saw the brightness of the smile on his face whenever he painted. I also discovered that I had to change my paint several times so that she could do the job.
Having found some cool relief, I decided to find him some literature that would emphasize this point in his life. Well, I have to plan to get another one soon because he has almost finished all the books I got for him a few months ago.
