"Too much" woman
Thursday, September 24, 2020
There she is. . . the “too much” woman. The one who loves too hard, feels too deeply, asks too often, desires too much.
She is dangerous.
Oh, that “too much” woman. . . too loud, too vibrant, too honest, too emotional, too smart, too intense, too pretty, too difficult, too sensitive, too wild, too intimidating, too successful, too fat, too strong, too political, too joyous, too needy - too much.
Here I am. . . a Too Much Woman, with my too-tender heart and my too-much emotions.
A hedonist, feminist, pleasure seeker, empath. I want a lot - justice, sincerity, spaciousness, ease, intimacy, actualization, respect, to be seen, to be understood, your undivided attention, and all of your promises to be kept.
We’ve been trying to stifle the Too Much Woman for eons — in our sisters, in our wives, in our daughters.
And still. . . she thrives.
If you’ve ever been called “too much,” or “overly emotional,” or “bitchy,” or “stuck up,” you are likely a Too Much Woman.
And if you are. . . I implore you to embrace all that you are - all of your depth, all of your vastness; to not hold yourself in, and to never abandon yourself, your bigness, your radiance.
Do not be afraid of this gift, and let no one shy you away from it. Your too much-ness is magic, is medicine.
It can change the world.
So please, Too Much Woman:
Ask. Seek. Desire. Expand. Move. Feel. Be.
Make your waves, fan your flames, give us chills.
We need you.
