She’s So Much More

She’s timid and she’s broken.

She’s the girl who cares too much.
Loves too much.
And hurts too much.

She’s the girl who over thinks.
Who over-analyzes every situation.

She’s the girl who fears what others think of her.
One who takes everything to heart.

She’s the girl who isn’t afraid of falling apart because it happens all too often.
She knows what it’s like to be alone.
To be different.
To be awkward.

She’s afraid to take a chance.
To put herself out there.
To be confident and succeed.

She’s the girl who isn’t much to look at, but there is so much to be seen.
The compassion she holds could heal an army, perhaps an entire nation.
She is silly, loves to laugh, and can make you smile.

She’s the girl whose heart is worn on her sleeve.
Bleeding and left open for all to see.

She’s the girl who is often overlooked.
Perhaps she is too open or too sensitive.
Maybe it is her inability to follow the crowd.
To participate in the small-talk about unimportant things.
She does not know..

She’s the girl whose skin is obviously anything but thick.
But she is real and she is true.

And she may just be the one to surprise you.

She is so much more…

  1. Heart warming and thought-provoking.
    She’s today’s woman whose destiny is written by everyone.
    She shouldn’t know any form of guilt,
    It’s her life.
    Let her live life on her own terms.

  2. Reblogged this on Always we begin again… and commented:
    The beauty of so much more.. I think this could apply to so many people developing and hurting, so when I came across it I just wanted to share it on my blog too

  3. Got your comment on my list, as seen on Phoenix’s blog. There’s a thing called WRAP, the Wellness Recovery Action Plan, which was developed by a group of folks trying to get & stay well while dealing with a variety of mental illnesses. The basic concept is to look at all the things you do for yourself and what you have in your life when things are going well. Then take regular stock of whether or not you’re keeping those things in your life. Lots of people have a list similar to mine, but you can also make your own, specific to what floats your own boat. So if I start canceling therapy appointments and stop taking my medications– whoops! start up again ASAP. Or if I meditate twice a day and I realize I haven’t done it in 3 days– you get the picture. Get well. Be well. Don’t watch the news.

  4. Thanks for the follow! I look forward to reading more of your writings, they are beautiful.
