Prompt taken from Submissive Guide : Submission is often described as the most precious gift a submissive can offer a Dominant. Others don’t believe that submission is a gift at all. What is your opinion about this? Once you have an opinion, then consider the other opinion and talk about how they could or could not be right as well. How would you describe your submission to your Dominant?

 

Let’s break apart this word in the first place, submission… to submit, the act of submitting. No one can force you to truly submit. In my opinion it is just as powerful as to replace the word submit with surrender. Sure anyone can be forced into submitting but then are you really giving your whole self to your Dominant? No. You have to want to submit to your Dominant.  So is submission a gift? In my opinion it is. It is something that I willingly offer to my Dominant.

It is confusing to me to not see submission as a gift and I haven’t met anyone who feels that it isn’t so I am going off of my own thoughts as to why someone would think that it is not and this is what I came up with: submission is not a gift because it has to be earned. Hmm. See’ this feels more like a compatibility issue than anything, I mean I can understand not fully submitting to someone you just met until there is a comfort level reached but once you are past that, again, if you are not willingly surrendering aka submitting then who is really in control here?

As to change things up and make this to where it is not just an essay type of posting, I have decided to describe my submission to my Dominant.. in a letter.

My Dearest Dominant,

If I were to describe my submission to you, I would say that it is the very life-force that keeps me going. I live to serve you and offer myself to you with love and trust that I do not even give to the two people in which created me. I am your pain slut, your cuddle slut, your slut, your drinking partner, your confidant, your foot stool, your pet, and anything else that you wish me to be as I know regardless of your sadistic ways, you would never harm me and do look out for my best interests. I am that loyal dog which regardless of what you do to me, I will still be there at your feet longing for your attention.

With love, submission, and service,

Your girl SehAnru
