Do not HATE on my CONFIDENCE
As women, we are told to walk with our heads high, know that we are beautiful and love ourselves. However, as soon as we build that confidence in ourselves, and strut in a room with our heads high we are bashed by OTHER WOMEN. You see the stares, and hear the murmurs, "oh who she think she is," "what she got on," "she think she's better than us," and all you want to say is, DON'T HATE ON MY CONFIDENCE!
You do not know how long it took someone to build confidence in themselves, it does not happen over night, it could take weeks, months, even years. We have to stop tearing each other down, and encourage, and uplift one another. Usually when a woman is tearing another woman down it is because she has low self-esteem, and is unhappy with herself. So I'm writing this blog hoping to help someone walk in their confidence!
First, it's extremely important to know that your confidence is in God! Knowing who He is, that you are loved by Him, that you are uniquely and wonderfully made by Him, and He did not make any mistakes!
Second, there is a big difference between being confident and being conceited. Being conceited, is thinking you are better than everyone else. Having confidence in yourself, is knowing your worth. You should always stay humble and help other women get to where you are.
Finally, do not compare yourself to anyone else, or women you see on social media, like Jonathon McReynolds stated in his song, COMPARISON KILLS! You are your own person, all you can do is be the best you! Do not let society pressure you into believing you have to look a certain way. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL AND SET APART FROM EVERYONE ELSE!
Here are a couple of scriptures that will help you know your worth and build your self-esteem. I encourage you to read the scriptures and look in the mirror everyday and uplift yourself! Nobody can help you better than you can help yourself! Let God show you how wonderful and beautiful you are!
Psalms: 139:13-14 CSB "For it was you who created my inward parts; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I will praise you because I have been remarkably and wondrously made." HE UNIQUELY STITICHED YOU TOGETHER! HE DID NOT MAKE ANY MISTAKES WHEN HE CREATED YOU! YOU ARE ONE OF A KIND!
Genesis 1:26-27 CSB "Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, according to our likeness. They will rule the fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the livestock, the whole earth, and the creatures that crawl on the earth.”So God created man in his own image; he created him in the image of God; he created them male and female. YOU ARE A REFLECTION OF GOD'S GLORY!
1 Peter 2:9 KJV But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.
YOU ARE ROYALTY, WALK WITH YOUR HEAD HIGH, YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE KING!
