If you were raised as a naked child, playing in sand &
sea, you may not realize the extent to which your libido may have become
magnetized. As an adult, this could be a problem. Your body is filled
with beauty and exhilaration, yet on the street you often encounter catcalls
and stalking. The way out is to let your mind be your bodyguard.
You can be ready to respond to verbal assault without sacrificing the
beauty inside you. Practice crying out, RUBBISH!
or I'm not buying that ticket!
Or you can simply scream, BUSHWA!
You may find yourself laughing and crying out, I'm not buying
that ticLet! The main thing to understand (and it's deep!) is
that Nature doesn't have a partner. You don't have to participate
in some random mating dance. Your mind is your friend, and with a
certain amount of pride, practice and understanding, you can keep random
strangers from stealing your attention or turning you into a frightened
stick figure. Don't let anger build up, turn you into a cast-iron marionette,
or destroy your inner beauty. You have to learn specific ways to CLEAR
YOUR PIPES! Get angry like a bodyguard!
Aren't you happy your family didn't manufacture a stiff wooden liar? Didn't
Pinocchio long to become a boy? You can escape further harassment by learning
to say, I must be going! Look it up!
