I’m a big woman. It’s not all I am.
I’m also an intelligent woman. I am often a funny lady, with a lot of sarcasm. At times I am a sweet, caring, and patient woman. And at other times I am a strong-willed, bossy, and impatient woman. I laugh a lot…I love to laugh. Sometimes I cry. I can be easy-going most of the time, but at times I can be demanding. I am tolerant of individuality . . . people with different ideas, opinions, beliefs, and backgrounds. I am intolerant of stupidity, incompetence, vulgarity, and abuse. I try to do the right thing, but sometimes I make mistakes. I love children. Adults who act like children on a regular basis annoy me. At times I feel attractive and sexy. At other times I feel unattractive and lonely. Most of the time I feel confident and fearless. Sometimes I feel shy and helpless. I have a forgiving nature, but some things are hard to forget. I believe that what others think of me is not important, but I am sometimes hurt by others’ words.
When you look at me, you see a big woman. If you take the time, you will see I am so much more. I’m not asking you to see beyond this outer shell, or even accept it. I’m asking that you see ALL of me, inside and out. You don’t have to approve of me, or even like me. But please acknowledge that I am a woman, complicated and still learning.
