HERE IS SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT...
There comes a time in every woman's life when she has to take a close
look at herself. Not at her circumstance, not at what he did, not how
unfair life is, not who made you do it, just at herself in all her
glory and imperfection.
For many women this is a scary thing because often times they don't
to know the truth about themselves. Real women know what I mean.
As women, we have a tendency to water one another down. Maybe it makes
us feel good or look better than the next woman. Or maybe we just don't
know how to tell that woman how we admire her.
Have you ever admired a woman who has been through changes in her life?
Or have you made up in your mind that she is just messed up. Before you
make this mistake, take a close look. A woman who has endured the most
unusual life is someone of wisdom. Someone who has been chosen by God
to go through. Think of all the great women in the bible, Mary
Magdalene and Esther to name a few.
Mary was a prostitute. A very uneasy woman. But by the time God was
done with her, she was his closest follower. Esther was unfortunate in
marrying an abusive man. By the time God was done with her, she married
one of the wealthiest men in the land.
Have you ever admired the strength of a single mother? Or have you made
up your mind that it's too bad she had children on her own. A single
mother knows no bounds when it comes to her children. She is strong and
durable. Single mothers are strong. Not because she has to be, but
because it comes natural for her to protect the extensions of her very
being. Her love for her children is like that of fuel to a car. Most
mothers keep their tanks full because they understand if it runs low
could jeopardize the car and have problems in the long run. Other
only fill it when it is needed. Their cars usually break down.
Have you ever wondered why some women are not approachable? Or have you
made up your mind that she is just mean. A quiet woman is a smart
She is valuable. She doesn't go off half-cocked and she won't be the
one to argue with you over nothing. She just may even let you go on in
your "setting her straight" and politely back out without a fight. She
doesn't let many in her world.
After all, she has probably been through the fire and had to rebuild.
So why let just anyone in? This is usually the woman that only gives
"small talk" and knows her place, which is away from all the
things in life.
Have you ever wondered why that woman is so loud? Well, hey she has a
lot to say. These are usually our younger women who have to learn
refrain. They are eager and unsettled. They do before they think and
they do not think before they talk. They just go.
Have you ever wondered about that woman who appears to have everything,
yet is still very unhappy? Well, she doesn't have everything. She
doesn't have personal validation. This is something that cannot be
bought. This is something developed over many mistakes and challenges
that have taught lessons of the unbearable.
Women are so quick to beat the next one down instead of trying to hold
her up. Before you wonder, "What's up with her?" Ask yourself, "What's
up with me?"
