After a Women’s meeting I attended recently, I was forced to ask myself a very serious question: Why is it so difficult for Women to appreciate the beauty in each other?
Most of us girls know that if a guy says you look great, no big deal, all well and good, but if another girl goes “Wow! You look AMAZING!!” chin up girl cos it’s got to be true!!
I think one of the reasons why it’s so difficult for us is because we immediately feel self-conscious in the presence of another beautiful woman. So a lot of girls would immediately look for some way to put the other girl down. “Her head's too big”, “Her make-up looks tacky”, “I’m sure her bag is fake”, “See her flabs....she's soo fat!!"
We always find something, anything to pull the person down just so we can feel better about ourselves. Why do we fear so much if another girl is better than us? If we are giving the best of ourselves every day, it wouldn’t matter to us because we already feel great about ourselves.
Beauty as we all probably know, is beyond the superficial. It is that inherent quality in a woman, or any other of God’s creatures, that is pleasing to the senses or spirit of an observer.
I think my friend, Seun Opaleye, is beautiful. Her gentleness, pureness of heart, and smile make her one of the most beautiful women I know.
Toni Tones’ forceful determination to achieve all of her set objectives makes her beautiful to me.
Temilade Onabanjo’s humility and simplicity is not only beautiful, but disarming.
Aisha Ibrahim’s naturally helpful nature makes her so effortlessly beautiful.
Ton Ekiyor’s intelligence and willingness to see the good in others makes her exquisite.
Tosyn Bucknor’s unrelenting enthusiasm for life will light up any dark place from even a great distance.
There is not enough space to mention the attributes of every beautiful woman I know or have ever come across.
But we can start this girls!! From now, this very moment, look at another woman, your friend, a stranger, someone you haven’t spoken to in years, and see her beauty. Tell her she is beautiful.
I assure you that the easiest way to feel great about oneself, is simply by making another person feel good about themselves.
