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.
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. 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.
