Desperation is Folly: A reflection on a failed relationship

By Damien Knight

(Written 2012)

I was insecure, desperate, uncertain and conflicted, I was many terrible things t strong man who “masters” himself is not. I have grown in the past few months learned don’t need a girl to justify my manhood. I need me to justify my manhood.

Maybe my failure was due to a lack of healthy romantic relations in the past (both with men and women), or perhaps it was my high expectations and thinking I would get it right the first try. Either way, I am sure I reeked of my insecurity and that is the biggest turnoff to anyone.

I should have reacted with strength and not pity myself. I have a long way to go before I feel comfortable being called “Master” of anything. At least I will keep learning.
