It is very difficult to be a woman today if you do not know who you are.
We live in a society that dangerously tricks women into thinking that simply existing, and keeping a good appearance “being pretty”, is all that matters, and is our purpose. We live in a society with some women believing and digesting that lie, unaware that there were created for so much more. It is a society which gives women their identities, through information on television, magazines, radio, and everyday life, by telling them WHO they are, WHAT they are supposed to be, WHY they exist, and HOW they’re supposed to look like. As a woman, I beg [with no beg-ging] to completely differ. Every woman alive in the world today, is born to be more than just being a pretty face. Just like how men are naturally enrolled or accepted to become visionaries, with goals and purpose, as women, we too, are supposed to have visions, goals and purpose. Not simply have them, but achieve them.
Don’t get tricked into thinking your values is in how you look, these are all temporary stuff. A time will come when you will have to be more than body.And you will wonder ” What have I actually achieved with my talents, and my gifts?” How are people going to remember you?? A woman of substance is what stands.
In this world, there is also a full misinterpretation as to what it means to be strong and independent. Being a strong and independent woman does not in any way mean to have men as the standards and wanting to be like them, or having a “what a man can do, i can do also”, or “i don’t need any man in my life, i’m independent” attitude. Far from that. These are sad and childish mindsets. Set yourself free, here’s my own definition:
” A confident woman knows how to work with other people, she does not feel threatened to have people work with her, as a matter of fact, a confident woman is willing to work together with the other gender. She does not see anyone as her competition because of the confidence she has in herself and her worth, while still going on and loving people. That’s a confident woman. ” Being independent as a woman has nothing to do with a woman’s relationship with the men or one not needing any man in her life. It is about being free in who you are, and knowing that you can achieve anything that you put your mind to. That’s what being independent means. Being independent from yourself. Setting yourself free.
Though these are all positive stuff. It is sad to say that the biggest enemy against our progress are sometimes us, women.
We want respect, RESPECT! But then how many women go around with their male best friends criticising other women and spying on other girls’ Facebook page criticising along with the males, all due to insecurity? And then you want people to respect you, and you go around advocating women’s empowerment?
It starts with you bringing on that change.
For us to go forward, we need to support one another. Yes, we want support from other people, the other gender maybe, but the reality is we don’t even help ourselves due to some of our attitudes. Until we realise that we are meant to work together, we’ll never move forward! It’s seriously time to wake up!
As a woman, know who you are, fully know that your beauty goes deeper than your looks, physical beauty does not last, it’s what’s on the inside that lasts, your gifts and talents, what you can bring to the world is what matters. It is what you should focus on.
And another truth is, until you use your gifts for the good of humanity you will never feel satisfied, you will live with no purpose!
How could you dare just existing??
Remember, you don’t have to walk over people to become truly successful. An arrogant woman is the opposite of a confident woman. Know who you are and STAND up!
[And of course there are amazing women out there, and some who have contributed to the change that we see today, but here i’m addressing those who still does not fully know the potential within them!]
