Have you noticed how when we are trying to convey empathy and compassion in a message or comment, we end the post with ‘soft hugs’ or ‘gentle hugs’?
Well, I don’t want a bloody gentle hug – I want an all-encompassing, totally warm, every-part-of-the body-involved hug!
The type which lasted long enough that your heartbeat began to match the other person’s heartbeat?
The hug from your partner, where you step into loving arms and your chest meets theirs, your tummy meets theirs, your pelvis meets theirs, where it’s not sex but still so warm and loving and encircling?
The hug from your best-friend that just says ‘I’m here. I understand. I wish I could take away some of your pain’?
Which kind of hugs do you miss the most?
