Knowing Your Worth As A Woman!

Have you ever felt like you don’t belong? Like being someone else because you felt like being you just wasn’t good enough? At some point in every woman’s life there comes a time when you have to bank on your self-esteem to help your feelings of poor self-worth. For some women, self-esteem is shaped by beauty and even more commonly, the way we think men view us or respond to us. It’s not uncommon for women to define their worth by the level of interest from the opposite sex. Emotionally and physically, females of every specie have been known to seek the attention of males – it not only makes life more interesting but it is necessary for procreation and protection.

So if it is a given that most women need men to exist, how then does one define or establish your self-worth independent of a man’s attention? Although it’s never at the forefront of our minds, but the society constantly reminds us how important it is to have a man on your arm in order to feel complete. As soon as a girl is a certain age, she is required by the society to become a woman and to play the role of a woman. Marriage and the responsibilities that come with it become her main focus – without even knowing it, it becomes her reason for existing.

It’s great to be a woman and it’s even more amazing to feel needed or wanted. However, your worth as a woman should exceed desire or attraction from the opposite sex. One of the best ways to really establish your worth as a woman is to live for something bigger than you – it all starts with knowing who are, why you were created, understanding what your purpose is, identifying what your dreams are and creating goals which you can look forward to achieving.

This is never easy! Although, placing your worth in the reason for your existence ensures that you would hardly feel rejected. Change is the only constant thing in life, so what happens when the guy who used to tell you, you were beautiful starts to talk negatively about your features or ignore you? Automatically, you would feel like you’re not good enough. However, when you work hard at being a successful and purpose driven woman, you would be confident enough to know that any guy who wants to win your heart would have to step up because you deserve nothing but the best things in life!
