Attention Addict!

My mother once told me that too much confidence is a sign of low self-esteem. She said confidence, beauty must be accompanied by humbleness and discretion. At that time, this did not make sense to me. How can I be confident and have low-self-esteem at the same time?

Have you ever met that woman who is so beautiful it’s hard not to watch; when she enters the room everyone turns? When she is quiet you swear is a misplaced angel. Everything about her is perfect, her hair, her face feature and her legs and her hips and bums are right where they are supposed to be?

But then when you get to know her, you realize that she is too much of the attention seeker and she will do ANYTHING to get it? She is always searching pursuing people to assure her that she is beautiful and she’s got it?
She gets herself in wrong relationships with older or married men just to prove to herself and everyone that she is beautiful and she can get whatever she wants? And above everything, she likes competition because if she ‘wins’ she feels good about herself – well for a bit.
That’s when realizing that even though she may look perfect, she doesn’t believe that about herself, she will not tell you but her actions will.
I must admit all women, including myself, love attention and it feels good you are given one. But confident women are happy most when they receive attention and from that one person who matters, it could be your partner, your mother, brother or just a friend.
The difference between one woman and another is that a confident woman will NOT do ANY stupid thing to get attention and because she is modest and discreet people are interested in just knowing her.
She might not look anything like Mrs Universe but she knows that she is beautiful and she believes the best about herself and that attitude keeps her in her place. She knows she is smart, she knows she is beautiful in her own rights. She might have things she is not comfortable with, but that doesn’t bother her because she knows that if God wanted her to look a certain way He would have made her that way.
She believes God when He says she is perfect, she believes God when He says she was made in His image and that’s the only assurance she needs. She will not neglect her outside appearance because it is the temple of God and the eventual reflection of who she is on the inside.
Just like all women, she wants attention but the right kind of attention. People must be drawn to her because she is easygoing, she is happy with herself and she is pleasant to be around. This is a woman filled with the Spirit of God and she walks in the fruit of the Spirit. She studies the word of God and she knows that’s the only effective way to challenge her inner negative voice that is constantly pulling her down.
This woman is not a perfect woman, but this is a woman whom her inside reflects the outside. She is full of light and it is impossible to light the candle and put it on the table – she won’t go for attention, she already has enough of it from God.

Ladies seek more of God’s attention because it is normal that people are drawn to light than darkness.

Stay blessed,
