There I am on the dance floor. With a blindfold. The man who dances me holds me in a way that I find unpleasant … and I feel a ‘no’ welling up.
It is time that I stand up for this, and show him with my hands that I don’t want to be touched.
All kinds of fears shoot through me. Like a previous experience, will this man startle and run away?
Shall I now stand alone?
But no, this man is staying. He continues to hold my space and can receive my ‘no’. He respects it and leaves me for a while, but does not leave me.
When I feel how healing it is that this man stays with my no, I am filled with love.
My body is blooming again and my hands are opening. Now we can really make in-depth contact.
