There is something so healing in touch! Endorphins released and that beautiful natural high you get when you feel loved. Medically speaking we all know it heals the mind and body it is a natural painkiller and it is good for the heart and soul ♥ its endless benefits are many and the opposite is harmful. Long time between touch can leave a heart empty and a mind in disarray! I came to a realization of how important touch is recently!
There is the touch of family when they hug you as in your children and grandchildren, parents and siblings that makes your heart rejoice and feel warm unlike any other! It’s that bond of love that is unconditional and rewarding as if to say, (we are always in this life together ❤ ) I know for me hugs from the above give such a warmth and comfort a feeling that is underscribable because it is that beautiful 😍 However, in that beauty there is still a human need and desire for a different touch one that only a spouse or significant other or lover can bring 💜 For the first time in my adult life I miss the power of that touch! Going through a divorce I asked for has left me for quite awhile missing that touch. For me as I transition it has been a very long time (well what I consider long some may differ) its been months and I never realized the effects it could leave you with. I mean as a medical assistant and in the field for years I am aware of the affects on the mind and body but never experienced it myself…until now! It is not easy and I can admit the craving and desire to be snuggled again is overwhelming example… when you have a sweet tooth and are craving sugar but can’t have the sweets at that moment in time..leaves you hungry, maybe a bit agitated but more then likely its a craving that won’t disappear as it is waiting to be fulfilled 💜
My point of this is many times the way our moods are affected can come from some basic needs we take for granted. Unfortunately, you can be in a marriage or relationship and still feel this way so its not about being with someone per say its more about being with the RIGHT one! I also implore it can not be with just anyone it also has to be( well at least for me) have some meaning and depth behind it. Hugging and kissing and holding are important and now I realize how much I miss it! You can not stay with someone for this reason nor can you find this with just anyone BUT if you are lucky enough to have this with someone, my advice.. embrace it! Also, if your needs are not met and your with someone DONT settle…there is someone better suited whom would love and can bring the touch you so need! I have learned many things as I have gotten older ..I realize life is not promised and I realize don’t take things for granted or wish for more..while I myself will never settle I also realize the beauty in life and look forward to TOUCH again…this time with the RIGHT one! 💖🤗😘❤💋
