I have conducted a lot of interviews professionally and one of the easiest questions to answer is what are your weaknesses, but it’s a farce – the question should be ‘what are you hiding?’ There are other ways to get to this answer, and the toughest question is asking, ‘what is the one question you don’t want me to ask you?’
When an interview is going south and there’s no reconciling it, i whip this bad boy out. I use it to illustrate a point to the candidate, what we look for in others is authenticity and we want to know what the limitations are. Trying to pretend you have none is a recipe for failure.
So an open ended question i pose to you dearest reader is the same: What is the one question you don’t want to answer?
Should i tell you mine? Ok i will tell you, i don’t want you to ask me if i am happy. I don’t really want you to know, similarly i don’t want you to know if i am sad. The reason is that i believe we are responsible for our own happiness, how we view the world, how we view ourselves is entirely within our control. No amount of D/s intervention can change how we feel inside.
Why this is important is that protocols, rules, roles, and to a very large degree safety depend on maintaining a positive state of mind. Once we allow ourselves to evaluate happiness in terms outside of positives and negatives, we remove our ability to regain control over our mindset, our emotions and our reactions.
Even though i feel happy and sad at times, i am committed not to slip – not to allow myself to let my actions and my words be impacted. The amazing thing about protocols is that they enforce exactly this positive affirmation, maintaining your headspace through maintaining your rules.
These panties are held together by two precarious slip knots. I could tie them another way i suppose, but this is how they came and i am positive that no matter what the slip knots will produce a positive outcome.
That’s what makes these panties special 😉
