It is not always that women are empowered and they feel confident about themselves. The truth is, they are most of the times insecure with a lot of things. Some of them are not comfortable with their physical appearance. Some are having problems with their personality development. Some are struggling with family and relationship issues. And some are not at all happy with their lives. Those are only a few of the reasons why women are vulnerable to emotional and mental conditions.
With the toxicity that surrounds the life of most women, their best option is to stay true to themselves. However, a lot of them find it difficult because there are factors that won’t allow it. These include judgment from people who never care to understand. There is a societal portrayal that women should stay only on a particular purpose. There is this other people’s mentality that females are born incapable of doing a lot of things. With that, most of them are having problems identifying themselves.
The Reality Of Uniqueness
“The world ‘normal’ suggests there is a right and wrong way to be a person,” said Pandora L. MacLean-Hoover, LICSW. “There isn’t. There is a spectrum of acceptable behavior in lawful societies like ours. It’s vast and varies greatly.”
In today’s era, everyone wants to fit in. There is this urge to become one of the crowds. That is the problem. You see, a lot of women are afraid of showing the world their genuine personality because no one wants uniqueness. Not everyone accepts the fact that some people stand out from the rest. That is because everybody is insecure and selfish that they do not want others to become different. It is a depressing reality that nearly all people have this crab-mentality. Yes, some are aware that their personality is their best asset. But not all understand its use and purpose.
Some women could not care less. They believe that being true to themselves is the most significant type of acceptance they can offer to everyone. These women are happy with who they are, and they do not care about the imperfections they have. Yes, these women also have a negative personality that needs improvement. But regardless of that, they keep fighting the battles of becoming a better version of themselves. These women are open to necessary change and are more than willing to improve instead of sticking to the norm.
“It’s easy to stay focused on the negative aspects of being different. Thinking of the negatives about your situation is the natural response,” wrote Nathaniel Lambert, PhD. “However, dwelling on the negative is usually harmful to your mental health and well-being. Instead, try to see the positives of being different and focus on these things; you’ll notice a drastic difference in your outlook on life.”
People can do nothing to please everybody. There are still some people who will have to say something whether you do and offer good things to them. So if you think you are not perfect enough, stop worrying about it because it is useless. If you believe that the only way for people to accept you is to blend in, quit trying so hard. People will still hate you, and they will always find fault in you. You can never stop them, so never feel sorry for being you. As a woman, it is your duty and responsibility to love yourself no matter what.
“Loving ourselves means experiencing our feelings just as they are. Oftentimes, we try to push away unpleasant experiences and cling to pleasant ones,” wrote John Amodeo PhD, MFT. You are entitled to show the world that regardless of the harsh judgment, an unfortunate event can never stop you from believing in yourself.
