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.
