afraid to be girly

I enjoy shopping.

There I said it. 

I didn't want to admit to it because it seemed like such a girly thing to like. And you know what? It is! It is girly. And that's *okay*. Because I am a girl. 

I pretend I am not a girl most of the time. I am not sure what I attempt to be when I am being "not a girl", but it certainly isn't based in reality. 

I am so afraid of being needy that I have gone to the other extreme. I am aloof. I am above people. I don't need them. I can get along just fine without others. 

That is a lie. 

I do need people.

I do have emotions. 

I am a girl.

God made me to be a woman. A warm, generous, loving, genuine woman. 

I need to embrace that and give thanks to Him who created me.
