Sometimes I miss the old her. The girl that felt confident. The girl with no stress. The girl that hardly had any body fat. The girl with so many friends. The girl who did anything she wanted. The girl that had thousands in her bank account. Sometimes I really miss that girl.
She’s changed. She second guesses herself. She almost wants to cry because she’s overwhelmed at times. She’s not happy with what she sees in the mirror. Only a select few friends talk to her now. She doesn’t really go out anymore. She barely has enough for this months bills. Sometimes this girl doesn’t even like herself.
Even though this may sound like a sad story, she has many good things in her life too. Even though she may second guess herself, she does what she thinks is best. She has a beautiful family that she loves. She is taken care of by a wonderful man so she can stay at home with her baby. Even though she doesn’t like her body right now, she embraces it because she gave life to her beautiful son. Even though she may not have many friends, she knows who the real ones are. Even though she has no money, every need is met.
So sometimes I miss the old her, but I think she has better things ahead. She’s still got growing to do, and a great life to live. She’s going to be just fine.
