In my “former life”, I used to be an overthinker; I would always wonder why some certain things happened to me. I later realised that sometimes, bad things happen to us so we can achieve a higher purpose and attain a greater happiness and fulfilment in life. You have the power to say “No!” to negativity; to be the boss of yourself. Albert Einstein said, “The woman who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The woman who walks alone is likely to find herself in places no one has ever been before”.
Where has life taken you? How deep in the rut have you fallen? How bad are those wrongs you have done that you think it’s impossible to start over? Enough with the self-condemnation…… Mrs Accuser! Judge! and Jury! There is still room for you to begin anew and turn those frowns into permanent upturned smiles. You aspire for greatness, don’t you? So what is stopping you? Why join the bandwagon? These so-called norms of the society, who has it helped?
Be bold. Break free from the chains of fear of “what the world would say”. It is time we stopped listening to what the world thinks and concentrate more on what God thinks and what is good for us. Somebody said, “Whatever is good for your soul, do it”.
At the end of the day, it’s your life. If you turn out good, the world celebrates you and with you (not minding how you achieved it). If bad, they abandon you (even if they gave you the advice that led you to doom).
So you see, life in itself is complicated. Humans particularly women, naturally are intricate especially when it comes to emotions so don’t let yourself as a woman, be overly complicated. It really is sometimes annoying and bothersome.
Let your “Yes” be yes and your “No” be no, so the bible admonishes us. There is no in-between. There are times we want something or we love someone but we don’t say anything. We want it to come to us and when it doesn’t, we feel so terribly hurt and allow ourselves to be filled with rage. Now, I ask you – rage for what? You hear some women say, “He is my man. I loved him first. He belongs to me. If I can’t have him,
then no other would”.
How does this sound to you? What makes you think he belongs to you? Did he commit to you? Did he even as much as say a word to you? Just because you like him deeply and he just happens to smile in your direction, you feel he is yours and you go terrorizing the girl he actually does like. Get over yourself. You have no basis for anger, talk less of taking vengeance. Vengeance on whom? Doesn’t it seem irrational to you?
Never force yourself on another. If you do this, then, this is you trampling on your own dignity without the help of another. Don’t let pride ruin that thing of beauty that was first noticed about you. HUMILITY is the word and it is this quality that will get you to dine with kings and sovereigns. The bottom line is in all things, show courage and confidence. Be bold and do what you want so long as it is right by you and God.
Never forget how amazing, beautiful, interesting and special you are.
