A submissive’s heart is not built out of bricks and stone. Rather, it’s made of glass and feelings and a desire to serve. With care and direction, that heart can soar and achieve great things for their caring Dom. But with neglect and mistreatment, it can shatter and cut the submissive very deeply, leaving them hurt and wounded.
If you truly understand the heart of a submissive, then you’ll do what needs to be done to protect it if they have entrusted you with it.
