The Words of the Heart, Soul, and Mind.

I’ve never really known who I am – but who really does? However, I do know that I’m a 17-year-old girl who is in the midst of discovering just that. Maybe in the future I’ll be able to come up with a coherent string of words that manage to encompass who I am, but for right now I’m a girl with a heart, a soul, and a mind stuck in an endless daydream – trying to figure out just how this world works.

The heart. The soul. The mind. That’s me.

I hope you stop spending all this time telling yourself that nobody will ever love you because it’s easier than admitting someone might. It’s easier to believe you need no one than to cherish the hope that someday you will need someone. It’s so much easier to have a soul in shatters – cracked, than to believe you’re more than a pretty china doll with all her pieces intact. It’s so much easier to guard your heart from the start than to let someone in who leaves it cracked. So you tell yourself that nobody will ever love you and you tell yourself it’s because you guard your heart with so much pain your unlovable. However, you’re so lovable and someday someone will see that and I hope it’s you.

Sincerely,

The Heart

I want you to know that I’m sorry. To the mind: I’m sorry for causing you to overthink constantly. For saturating your fields of knowledge with dangerous, negative thoughts. For bullying you with words and questioning our sanity. To the heart: I’m sorry for bruising and blackening your core. For halting the flow of electric passion between your chambers and for preventing your ability to attach to the strings of others. For fueling your disappointment over and over again, yet you still exhaustively pump and beat for me. This is what the soul wants – apologies.

Sincerely,

The Soul 

I know that at seventeen-years-old, you feel alone and hated by the world, but the worst thing about hating yourself is that the person you used to be hurts the person you will be someday. It’s such a vicious and natural cycle that needs to happen for change to occur. So keep your head up, no matter how hard you gut yourself open, and after you open your mouth and more mistakes come out. It takes time to love yourself, but I promise you it’s worth the trouble. This I know.

Sincerely,

The Mind

  1. Dear Victoria,
    Wow – this piece is amazing. Your blogs never cease to amaze me, and this one is no exception. The approach you took with writing this piece was really refreshing and neat to read. I especially enjoyed reading about the soul. There is something really captivating about your writing and I think that it is the sincerity that you write with.

    In terms of improvement, I think the simplicity of your writing adds to the style and feeling of the piece. As a reader, I would have loved to have kept reading (maybe some elaboration on some of the topics), but, like I said before, your writing is incredible. I felt like I got to see who you were/are through this piece, and it is for this reason that I honestly would not recommend any major changes to it.

    Thank you for sharing this blog with us. As always, I can’t wait to read more 🙂

    1. Dearest Shyla,

      Thank you for your kind words! It means a lot to me. I didn’t want to make this post too long because I find that I am a very simple person which I wanted to represent by keeping the post to just above the minimum. Plus, I can be lazy too. Haha.

      Love,
      Vic

  3. Victoria,
    I haven’t really gotten the chance to take a close look at your writing, but I have to say that I’m highly impressed with this piece. Your writing style is rather eloquent and almost poetic-sounding in some respects with your diction and use of words. The approach you took to this assignment was very unique, writing everything in letters from the different parts of yourself. I was also surprised to see that you included something that no one else had done, with that being a portion of this dedicated to the mind. I actually found that part of this piece to be the most interesting, as no one has addressed this other aspect of themselves in their blog pieces and presentations (or at least as far as I’m aware).
    In terms of improvement, I would suggest that you perhaps make your pieces a little longer; they were extremely well written, however I wanted to hear more of what you had to say in your writing!

    1. Dear Genevieve,

      Thank you for taking the time to read my blog! I have a hard time visualizing things in my mind, which is why I often turn to poetic-like diction! Thank you for noticing!

      I haven’t presented yet, but I think my presentation will focus on the soul, heart, and mind like this blog post. In terms of the feedback you provided, I didn’t really know what else to write since I haven’t taken the time to delve into the dark crevices of my being. Hopefully, after I present I’ll be able to edit this post and make it longer!

      Kind Regards,

      Vic
