We weren’t born ‘not’ to be hurt (Narrated)…

Date: June 14, 2016

01) Inspired by this BoyChat thread…

This selection from “In Self Defense: The Life and Times of An Atheist BoyLover…Memoirs and Ethos”, has been narrated by Rocco White. Please enjoy the listen, or read along if you like…or need to.


One of the primary rules in life is…if you survive long enough, you will be hurt…maybe badly…maybe many times…and that’s just part of the whole experience…It’s what makes us evolve, and hopefully grow in better ways.

I never understood the desire to cocoon people, and to stop them from knowing what life is…or what it has in store…It just always seemed like a common sense thing to me…that if you expect anyone to be confident enough to thrive in this world…then you need to allow them to acclimate to this world…and grow from their experience.

…That includes a lot of crappy experiences…It does.

…And raising the bar so high, that nobody can reach the standards of “living a good life”…or “living an honorable life”, on account of the fact that…yes…sometimes, they wont be at their best…That is something I find so reprehensible…Because there is no such thing, as a relationship so perfect, that nobody hurts each other…short of the vaguest of associations.

While some people may fall all over themselves, rushing to define us in only the most negative of lights and degradation…

…I root for the underdogs, of all ages and social status…to eventually get a taste of life, and find a bit of happiness in this world before they die…after which, it’s just lost.

…One of the biggest tragedies in this world…is all the people who live life, never finding wholeness…never getting to realize what it means, to be at a true pinnacle in life…to never taste life, at it’s yummiest…

…Like many here [on BoyChat]…I’ve also expressed anger over these limited horizons, I live under…The anger has never been because of any sense, of self entitlement to sex…

…The anger, has always been rooted in never being afforded the honest opportunity…to even just prove myself worthy of the experience…

What’s going to hurt us more?…

…The normal dangers of living a life?…

…Or never learning how to navigate them?

You people out there, intending to “save us all” from the dangers of life…You so rarely understand, the damage you inflict on the lives, of even those who you love…

…Because, you are too wrapped up in your own obsession to “save us”…that you never figured out…what you are trying to shield us from…is exactly the thing we needed most, to attain wholeness for ourselves…
