It’s easy to say “embrace your fantasies and desires,” as though the only obstacles that exist are within ourselves. In many cases, that’s true. But what do you do when those desires are in conflict with relationships, lifestyles, conscience?
*Accepting* desires and fantasies, acknowledging them, understanding the specifics about them, where they might come from, what you *need* vs what you merely *want* – hard as that may be, it’s still the easy part, because it’s all in your head. You don’t have to risk anything.
*Embracing* those desires, though – seeking ways to fulfill what you’ve worked so hard to admit about yourself; *doing* rather than just thinking – that’s when you start to wonder whether your desires will destroy you or the ones you love.
