Masturbation can blind one to the reality of relating to others
IF it is used to get over loneliness, despair, fear of rejection, or boredom. I was seduced by my abusers with masturbation and pornography. I believe there is a healthy expression of masturbation, but its kida tough when its linked to my abuse. I'm working on it though. I don't think Masturbation is sinful, but it can become disordered.

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.
