Yeah, the divorced witch thang is some realness. It's surprised me, but this whole process has been surprising. Also, it's worth noting that the vibe of the evening definitely wasn't ceremonial… we were drinking whiskey from jam jars and cracking jokes half the time.
I mean, I'm all for taking a deep breath and getting quiet for a minute, but the tone of the evening was FAR from "let's do a ritual, here let's get very spiritual and serious and holy and stuff. I just want to thank you for the word "prayerformance. At hippie raves and music festivals here in my corner of the world, it was not uncommon for the dance floor to be cleared around midnight so that a group of people almost always slender, beautifully-dressed young women could come out and do "Prayerformances" involving lighting candles, wiggling fire fingers, holding geodes, etc while everyone else stood around and watched.
The goal was to create a sense of focus and intention for what were essentially dance parties… and that sentiment here is lovely! It always rubbed me the wrong way. If you're spiritual, you Doop (Re-Washed) (Chris Cute Radio) - Beat BangerZ - Doop (Re-Washed) (File) need to show it off. If you need to show it off, the motivation might not be spiritual. No shame on social validation as a primary motivator!! Born This Way (Chew Fu Born To Fix Remix) - Lady Gaga - Born This Way own it and don't try to pretend it's something else.
In both cases, it feels like someone being like, "Lookit how spiritual I am! Home schooling is another place where far-Christian and far-Hippie overlaps. Totally fascinating. Isn't that totally fascinating. There are aspects of my hippie upbringing that are so similar to the ultra-christian world- not just homeschooling. Do what you will but be Early In The Morning - Various - Jazz In Chicago 2 - Les Clubs De Jazz about what it is, especially with yourself.
Being a willing tool of the universe, a catalyst in the life of a stranger, is to me Waterman (Original Mix) - Klangwerk - Waterman most sacred and holy experience one can have. It comes from a place of instinct and intuition, transcends personal agenda, and reminds everyone about the ductile threads joining us all. It's, yes, also fucking exhausting and usually unexpectedly healing.
Sleep, drink water, eat grounding foods, indulge in self-care hair brushing and massage are my two favsand know that you just made a beacon of pure positivity in the universe. And thank you.
This was the most beautiful post I've read from Offbeat. Your actions were so strong, so thoughtful and loving. Thank you so much for this compliment. This is the kind of writing I'm doing a LOT of right now, y'all just have to wait for a bit to read it…. Yep, done that a couple of times. My agenda was wanting to get laid, but theirs ended up not matching mine. In one experience, on our second date he told me he missed his ex and suddenly our time was spent discussing what went wrong, life lessons, and making plans to get them back together.
They did get back together and he thanked me for the honest conversation that night a while later. Ariel, as shocking as your divorce was to longtime readers like me, I have to say that reading this was so inspiring. I've never read anything like this before, and I feel like we're getting to see a side of you and hear a voice that we never would have otherwise, and it's pretty fucking cool.
I Pink Floyd - The Secret Valley begin to imagine what you've been going through, and I hope you're doing okay. But if you're able to give your readers a story like this in your new journey, I for one am really grateful and really fucking impressed. Thanks for this, Bee. I have like 20 things I want to say at once, and the first thing is just: thank you.
This means a ton to me. Then, in no particular order:. I have an almost unfair amount of support in my life friends, family, extended community, therapist, etcso I really am doing fine. I mean, I still cry almost daily but it's good for me! Especially compared to a year ago, I'm pretty solid! Before divorce, infertility was the worst thing I'd ever been through — and let's just pause and say wow, what a life of privilege I've had that "can't make baby" and "marriage ending" are the worst things that have ever happened to me.
I was finally able to make my baby Tavi is 7 now! He's awesome! My body could barrrrely New Day - The Seer - Arrival that one baby, but I have an almost overwhelming amount of creative energy, and so stories have always been my babies.
Then, some of those stories grow up and become websites and books and businesses. If I go on a date, and it's not going to result in what I was originally looking for, I'm compelled to find a value-add to get out of it anyway. This might make me an emotional entrepreneur? As an added Mrs. Vandebilt - La Brigada - La Brigada, if sharing my story helps other people? I feel like I win all the trophies.
Helpy selfy, helpy world? That's my mission and my purpose. Ariel, you made my day. What an amazing gift you have him. I too am sorry to hear of your divorce. I am a long Doop (Re-Washed) (Chris Cute Radio) - Beat BangerZ - Doop (Re-Washed) (File) reader as well.
When my relationship ended I felt like it broke a piece of my soul off. I am so glad you have support. I often felt alone and misunderstood Doop (Re-Washed) (Chris Cute Radio) - Beat BangerZ - Doop (Re-Washed) (File) I had worn out my welcome to cry and process with friends.
Sending you so much love and getting laid by someone super hot! Same here! The end of my relationship felt like a part of my body was physically ripped from me, and brought the end of many friendships i thought were big and important. So I know what feeling alone means, and how hard it is.
I have a cat now. More 40 than 30! No children! And a cat? As stereotypical as it sounds, I think that's part of my "go back to being a witch" path.
Plus, she's fluffy and sweet, and useless humans can seriously go fuck themselves. Nope, but we keep in touch and I'm sure we'll see each other again at some point.
In fact, look: he totally just left a comment on this thread! After being in such a dark place for so long the "disposable dating culture" of Tinder Doop (Re-Washed) (Chris Cute Radio) - Beat BangerZ - Doop (Re-Washed) (File) just Doop (Re-Washed) (Chris Cute Radio) - Beat BangerZ - Doop (Re-Washed) (File) thing.
Just matching with someone on the app lifted my spirits. Especially when that Tim Maia - Racional Vol. 2 is a successful, intelligent and very intuitive person. She was a fox! Strong features quick wit, I told her my secrets and was rewarded with that warm flood of relief when someone accepts you for who you are.
Of course I wanted to see her again! When I found out that this second Tinder date was actually a surprise spa day I was impressed.
I'm all for challenging situations and enjoy a good tub. Technically I wasn't really naked, I had a glass of whiskey in my hand the whole time. Her plan worked. She scrubbed Doop (Re-Washed) (Chris Cute Radio) - Beat BangerZ - Doop (Re-Washed) (File) up against my intimacy, vulnerability, and scarcity issues.
She exfoliated my grief, betrayal, and addictions. She revealed a new layer in my healing process. A layer I had yet put words to.
She correctly identified this feeling I was experiencing as shame. I spent the following day rather dazed, quietly processing the evenings events. I wanted to contact her and tell her everything! I wanted to be near the person who accepted me, cared for me and scrubbed the fuck out of me. But it was clear these feelings are my feelings and part of my process. The shame is there. The realization that my supportive community was low key judging me and my questionable decisions.
This experience was a brave gift from a stranger who risked her home to my demons and created a healing space for me. I don't know why she did it, it was really special. Thank you for chiming in to share your perspective! So neat that we readers got to see both sides of this unique date.
Ariel, thank you for sharing this. There's something about it that was exactly what I needed to read George Harrison - The Best Of George Harrison this moment.
