“DUUUUU MAAAAAA! FUCKING SHIT”
Those were my words as a needle was going through my penis. You read right. I pierced my penis. People think I’m crazy for going through the pain. It’s been about two months and it still hurts.
Probably because I keep on snagging my barbell on my jeans NUMEROUS times. Believe it or not, there was a time when I wouldn’t even consider getting any piercings. I wasn’t always this crazy.
Let’s rewind 4 years ago. I’ve always been attracted to piercings, even though I’ve never had any. My girlfriend and I were lying in bed… then the piercing agreement came up. If I pierced my penis, she would get a tongue ring.
Win-win situation right?
Except I was NEVER serious about getting one. Fuck. Why would I ever do that?
Four months later my girlfriend broke up with me. My world came crashing down. Although I was emotionally traumatized, I wanted to live a more spontaneous lifestyle.
Getting a penis piercing would represent the NEW person I wanted to be… an alpha personality, who didn’t let their fears control them. No lie, some of it was out of spite. I always joked about getting it… up until now.
So what happened? I kept on pushing it back. Every time I was about to do it, I made an excuse.
Do any of these excuses sound familiar?
“It’s too much money”
“I’ll do it when the time is right”
“I’m too busy… I don’t have enough time”
“Logically, it doesn’t make sense… Why would I do this?”
Honestly, I could have picked up an extra shift at the pharmacy or give up porn for a day. That’s when I realized that money and time were just SURFACE level barriers. My actual fear was tainting my self image.
At the time, I never had any piercings or tattoos. I’ve never drank alcohol or snorted cocaine. Things like that would ruin my image…or so I thought. I was SCARED of what people would think of me.
Although my fears had the best intentions, it was draining mentally. I spent 4 years battling and contemplating about my penis piercing. My indecisiveness costed me time and piece of mind.
Think about it, it was JUST a piercing. I should of gotten it done and moved on. My fear of judgement was holding me back from enjoying life to its fullest potential. Fuck… That was hours of porn I missed out on.
The right time is NOW, not later
Instead of just thinking about the consequences, look at what you’re missing out from doing NOTHING.
Even though my penis was bleeding like a fountain, I still felt a sigh of relief. I didn’t have to worry anymore. The voices in my head were gone.
In the future, I’ll talk about HOW I got over my fear, but I wanted to ask you guys a few questions. What is one thing that has been on your mind for years that you haven’t done? What are you missing out on from doing nothing? What is your real reason for not doing it?
