This Girl


I don’t want to be this girl: the girl who hears, “I’m not ready for a relationship,” and her first instinct is to say, “What if we take it slow?”, as if, if she’s just patient enough, he’ll come around.

I don’t want to be this girl: the girl who knows deep down that people really do exactly what they want, but tells herself that maybe this person wants something different from what he’s doing. 

I don’t want to be this girl: the girl who sends a simple, “How are you?” text, doesn’t get an answer, and then rationalizes all the reasons why this could be, when she knows that really it takes about 3 seconds to send a polite response.

I don’t want to be this girl: the girl who agonizes over why he didn’t respond, when the answer is quite clear: he didn't want to.

I don’t want to be this girl: the girl who feels so sad over a lost opportunity with a man (boy?) she barely knew.

I don’t want to be this girl: the girl who the rest of the world calls “strong” and “brave,” but who hates hearing those words because she feels like she never lives up to them.

I don’t want to be this girl: the girl who feels so fragile and lonely inside.

I don’t want to be this girl.
