Women And Confidence
Women And Confidence
When you think about yourself, does it make you proud? If somehow this question seems embarrassing, the chances are that you lack in self esteem and confidence. Why do so many women dislike themselves? Why have self esteem and confidence become enormous issues in today’s society? Self esteem is something that comes from within a person. This means that a woman does not have to be dependent on another to feel good. A woman has the confidence that she is perfect and is not defined by who she is with. This does not indicate that you are conceited; it just means that you are comfortable in your own skin despite having both strengths and weaknesses.
Self esteem is judged as a core issue related to one’s identity. It is a personal validation and the ability for a woman to experience contentment. This is easily achievable as self esteem comes from within. Now, if self esteem has been stunted, a woman will feel bad about herself and become engrossed with negativity in a variety of reasons ranging from relationships to culture and home life. The way society views beauty, youth and thinness is bound to doom low self esteem on every woman out there. Women’s magazines which are even available in the teenage market focus much on physical appearance. Many young girls learn to enjoy spending time at the gym instead of participating in simple and pleasurable activities of their young life. Too many women become fanatical about slimming diets. The latest trend seems to be the focus on plastic surgery adopted by several celebrities in society. Yet, women will never feel complete by engaging in such futile efforts.
All this can change as it is critical to remember that one’s worth is not in the way of physical appearance. Instead what is more important is taking control and leading fulfilling lives. Learn to set goals that are achievable and realistic. Having good self esteem helps you to accept yourself more fully and enjoy living life. Learn to aim for accomplishments instead of focusing on perfection. Perfection may make you hold yourself back, which serves no good purpose at the end.
