I am MORE than

Ron and Judee's daughter

Greg's wife

Jack and Jeannie's daughter-in-law

Jakob and Sofia's mother

My relationship to anyone

The boys in third grade that said I needed liposuction

The boys that liked my body as it is

The years I spent worrying about what my body looked like to boys

The years I still spend worrying about what my body looks like, even as I make it stronger and stronger, but it still doesn't look how I want it to look, while trying not to care

My job

My religion

My faith

The razor scars

The blue pills I used to take

The other pills I took too much of

The therapist that didn't believe me

The therapist that did, and saved my life

All these things make me ME, but I am more than any one thing on its own.

I own my experiences, try to learn and grow, try to keep moving forward.

There is always more to me.

We are always looking for that one perfect picture, but the true perfect picture is the one that makes it seem as if that moment in time is happening all over again.
