When You’re A Tough Girl With A Soft Heart

When you are a tough girl with a soft heart, you will have a public you and a private you.

When you are a tough girl with a soft heart, you will look like things don’t bother you and nothing can bring you down, but on the inside, you’ve got a turmoil of emotions you are trying to tame.

When you are a tough girl with a soft heart, people will think they can say whatever they want because you can take it on the chin, but they won’t know that words mean the world to you. They cut through you like a knife and leave you bleeding.

When you are a tough girl with a soft heart, people will say you are confident and determined, but they won’t see all your insecurities and the times you cry yourself to sleep because there is just another disappointment you have to deal with.

When you are a tough girl with a soft heart, your independence will define you, but when you are alone in your bed at night, you wish you had someone next to you who would softly touch you and whisper in your ear how amazing you are.

When you are a tough girl with a soft heart, you may not say much, but you will always show up for those you care about and offer your help even when you have not been asked to.

When you are a tough girl with a soft heart, people will think you don’t need anyone, but they won’t know how much you want and need to be reassured, supported, loved, and encouraged too.

When you are a tough girl with a soft heart, you won’t reveal it to many people because your heart is a matter to handle with care. You know very well that not everyone will be able to treat you the way you deserve.

Being a tough girl with a soft heart is difficult, but being soft is the most powerful way to show your toughness.
