Feelings of Inferiority

I play in an athletic sport.

I have athletic friends.

I struggle with certain aspects of my chosen sport.

One of the biggest things I struggle with is my size, my weight, my jugga-butt.

It’s hard – when you’re bigger than everyone else – to feel *as good as* the rest.

The stupid thing is I *know* that it’s mostly in my head.  I say mostly because no one has said anything, in fact, everyone is very encouraging and supportive, but I don’t know what really goes on in anyone’s heads.

But I feel less than.  I feel not as good as.  I feel like the size of my ass sometimes defines whether or not someone will hang out with me, be my friend, or otherwise interact with me.

And it’s a very uncomfortable place to be.  It’s so much not fun.  (say that one 5 times fast)

Its a weird place to be in… the knowing logically vs feeling it in my heart.

I miss my friends.  I miss my circle.  I miss my Kathy. I miss my Michelle.  I miss my Sirens.

I don’t yet feel like I fit in anywhere in Quesnel – but it will come – I know it will.  It just takes time and I’m not the most patient of people…

But I’ll get there… eventually.

    It’s so hard to tell the difference between the voices and reality. I struggle with it, too. It’s taken me a long time to find where I fit in Houston Roller Derby, and I still question it. Hope you figure out a way to shut those voices up.
