A current challenge I am wrestling with, especially since her sassiness has escalated in previous days, is to find that balance between letting her be herself (a part that I enjoy) but not allowing her to overstep her boundaries and act in a manner that is disrespectful to me. I don't have as much patience with that behavior as I used to; she is aware of that and knows that I won't let her get anyway with anything. I am quick to point things out and unwavering in my punishing for her. I am mindful to be exceptionally consistent as in the past, lack of consistency has led to issues, in particular, her acting out out of confusion over what is expected of her.
So I gave her a writing assignment as I wanted her to reflect on that boundary; how does SHE feel about being true to her smartass personality while not being disrespectful to me. This is what she came up with. As I told her, not her best work, and I am somewhat offended of her criticism of my writing topics. I suppose it gives you a sense of what I have on my hands! As she well knows, her being a smart ass can lead to her having...an ass that smarts.
Like I said yesterday, wild horses are the ones worth taming the most.
Offer some reflection on how you feel, as a woman who is very sassy and accustomed to being a smartass, you are adjusting to being my sub 24/7 and having to balance between your outspoken behavior and being respectful towards me at all times.
Word for word, this is what I was sent to write about. Jesus, please someone throw out a subject for me….S’s….well, they suck.
I have no clue where to even start. My first thought was to be a smartass and add a comma in a spot and just reflect on how I feel as a woman. Then again, I guess that is how this became the subject. For one thing, I am not as much as a smartass as I used to be. S is the type to take things to heart and will think into a joke way too much so I had already toned it down before becoming his.
My job is a very busy one. Clients coming in to see me, co-workers, phone calls, deadlines, etc. I think that is another reason I just can’t remember to text when I arrive or leave work. Once here I switch modes completely and become the take charge person that I am. Then at home things are a bit different of course. I have been adjusting fine and things seem to be going well. The respect part and showing it always has done nothing but help us.
