    I'm also a contradiction in myself.

    I rant about being tough and taking care of myself, but then talk about being a submissive. Let me explain. When I'm on my own, I do take care of myself and I'm damn proud of that. Submission is a gift, in my opinion. And when I find a man worthy of that gift from me, I give...

    Every time I can accurately say something about myself it surprises me. There are so many things about me that contradict, I don't think I truly know myself in my entirety. As the title suggests, I am a pugnacious pacifist. There are many times I'm readily disposed to fight, but...

    I just am because my emotions dictates my

    perception. One second I'd think everyone is better than me and I'm the pest. Then I'd get angry and think they're so close minded for not accepting me and they deserve to perish they're mean and cruel.
