My name is Kelly and I am a hard worker. I have high standards for myself and I strive to live up to them every day. If I don’t get it right then it really bothers me. There are no excuses, no reasons why something cannot be done correctly. I will always be on time, I will always be properly turned out. I will be prepared for every situation and I will do everything perfectly. I want your praise, I want you to be surprised and pleased at how well I have done something. I want recognition for a job well done. I do not suffer fools gladly, I have no time for people who do not care about the task at hand. I want to be the best.
My name is Kelly and I am a artist. I want to spend my time writing and making and planning. I surround myself by pretty things that make me happy. I want to day dream. I want to walk and walk. I love taking pictures, writing in cafes, people watching. I want to buy beautiful things and fill my house with them. I want to be inspired. I want to forget about day to day things and just create. I want to let my imagination run wild.
My name is Kelly and I am a mum. I have a beautiful baby boy who I love more than I ever thought possible. I am constantly amazed by his smile and his laugh. My heart feels like it will burst every time he looks at me with love and trust in his eyes. I want to cuddle all day long. I want to teach him, I want to watch him grow. I want to look after him and keep him safe. I want to teach him manners and values. I want to be proud of him. I want to be the best mother in the world. I understand that it is not easy, and that some days I will fail. I hope that he will never hold that against me.
My name is Kelly and I am tired. I am cold and fed up. I am twisted and sad. I want you to go away, I want you to shut up. You cannot understand my pain and I don’t want you to. Who are you to offer advice? I cry. There is a lump in my chest and it will not go away. I am scared. I am agoraphobic, claustrophobic, xenophobic. I am angry. I rage inside. I am swept away by the sadness and injustice in this world. I want to crawl under the duvet and never come out.
My name is Kelly and I am a wife. I love my husband so much and I am grateful every day that I met him and that things worked out for us. I want to be with him all the time. I want to be close to him. I want to provide for him and look after him. I want him to be proud of me. I love being in a relationship like ours, full of understanding, trust, love and respect. I want to scream sometimes when he does things to annoy me. I want to make him laugh, I want him to cheer me up when I am sad. I want to be with him forever, I want to grow old with him and watch our children grow up. I gave my heart to him and I am looking after his.
My name is Kelly and I am an introvert. I like to be alone. I like to read, to think, to worry in silence. I don’t want to talk about it. I want to think about it. I want to spend time with myself. I want quiet. I don’t like telephone calls, text messages are my lifeline. I don’t want to go out in the evening, I prefer a film or a book. I don’t like crowds, I don’t really like most people. I don’t make friends. I make a terrible first impression. I am shy. I want to potter without interruption. My own company is the best I know.
My name is Kelly and I am funny. I like to mess about. I love a belly laugh, I find my own giggles infectious. I love being with my oldest friends and laughing until my sides split and I cry silent tears of joy. I love to do my impression of Dory speaking Whale. I do comedy tap dancing when friends need cheering up. I love to dance, wherever I am. I love to do silly dances to make Mr C laugh. I dressed up as a ladybird when 41 weeks pregnant to cheer myself up. I love humour and language. I love the relationships that I have with certain people that means that I can rip the piss out of them with no fear of misunderstanding or upset. I am quick witted and sharp. I can’t wait to share laughter with my own children.
Who are you?
