Sometimes I get in over my head. I’m a committer. I volunteer for things left and right and I love it. I love them. But sometimes, I take on too much.

I’ve been this person for a long time.

I don’t mind it so much, really.

What I mind is when I’m overlooked.


It’s hard to feel like you’re busting your hump for someone or something and then it’s not even noticed that you’re there.

I can’t really explain it. Maybe it’s my emotional state right now.

And if I “work” with you in any way, know it’s not you. Or you. Or you, either.

I wouldn’t be putting it out there if it were related like that. Or would I? heh. I don’t know.

It’s just how I’m feeling.

I’m slightly emotional. Blame PMS. Blame the almost-start of the school year?

Blame nobody and just recognize that it is what it is.

Isn’t it?

Sometimes just a small smile. Virtual or otherwise. That’s all I need.

A reminder. Not public recognition. Not at all.

But when I talk to you? Ask you questions?

Answer me.


Answer me. That’s all I’m asking for.

Because I’m just as good as them. Maybe better. If you give me the chance you’ll know. I promise you that.

Just don’t forget that I’m here. Please.

Because I’m strong, and positive, and powerful. But even I need a reminder and some encouragement now and then.
