It's consensual as long as you yell surprise first, right?
If that makes you feel better, i'll yell surprise.
“I made you take time to look at what I saw and when you took time to really notice my flower, you hung all your associations with flowers on my flower and you write about my flower as if I think and see what you think and see—and I don't.”

Well if you're content being dependent on others, I guess that makes you the masochist. Anyway...
A masochist is someone who takes pleasure in pain, while many of these people enjoy subjugation it is not necessarily a defining trait of a masochist . Also, everyone is dependant on others in one form or another. If we loose contact with people, become disconnected our mental health suffers.
-Withdrawal from everyone: Usually my first defense, I'll go read a book, watch a movie or play video games. But I shut the world out.
-Go Ballroom Dancing if the option is available. *ALWAYS* makes me feel good
-Go my ravish and cuddle with my SO (if applicable)
-Listen to video game music or STP. Strictly speaking or both, both of those things I associate with good times in my life (video game music reminds me of my childhood and STP reminds me of that really warm and awesome period of my life when I got out of the hospital and everything felt possible). Si-dom though so YMMV

Its feels restricting, and somewhat self caging. During these times, if you experience irritation, how do you bring yourself back to your happy place?
Sometimes, I try to identify one actual, specific source of irritation and inconvenience in my life, and figure out a way to eliminate or reduce it. More generally, though, I will spend some time doing something I enjoy doing and am good at.
Hope is the denial of reality. It is the carrot dangled before the draft horse to keep him plodding along in a vain attempt to reach it. We should remove the carrot and walk forward with our eyes open. -- Raistlin Majere
I find a hobby that makes me happy and immerse myself till I forget my troubles. That could be photography, violin, travel, illustration or watching continuous Big Bang Theory till the world turns the right way up again.
