No More Playing Princess
There, in bright pinks, yellows, and purples were all her princess costumes, worn and tattered from years of love. At that moment I was faced with the reality that I hadn’t seen her wear one in a while... a long while. Another milestone had passed without me even recognizing it: my girl had exchanged her pretend dresses and jewelry for the real ones.
If I’m honest, I haven’t completely quit playing dress-up...
I put on a sheer covering of joy, in an attempt to hide the depression underneath.
I smear superficial admiration on my lips to hide my secret jealousy.
I don too-tight shoes I was never meant to fill to boast my capacity.
I try so hard to be the princess I feel like God wants me to be.
I don’t think I’m the only one who struggles in this area. Do you, too, feel like an imposter sometimes?
