A Woman’s Self Esteem

17 Nov

I was commenting on another blogger’s post last night and the conversation got me thinking and coming to the conclusion:

That a woman’s self-esteem is over rated.

High self esteem leaves for no improvement, especially of character. Low self esteem leads to self pity. Both are terrible and annoying. 

So, to all women, I would say throw the concept of self esteem out the door. I learned last night that a woman should stay away from any comments about herself and her view of her physical attractiveness. One woman says she is “ugly”–No you’re not! One woman says she is “average”–No you’re not! One woman says she is “pretty”–No you’re not! …wait, that is not socially acceptable…

I would argue that self esteem in general, for both genders, is over rated, but right now, I’m just attacking the woman! 😛

The reason I feel it is particular bad for a woman is because this leads to her thoughts being consumed about herself. We already live in a self-centered society and all we need is more women thinking about themselves. 

“Before destruction a man’s heart is haughty, but humility comes before honor.” (Proverbs 18:12) 

With that topic, what are you all going to do for somebody else today? or this week? 

Thanksgiving is coming up and I know this sounds cliche, but seriously think about what you are thankful for and think about that one thing you cannot live without…

For me, it is God and my family. 🙂 

You’re free to share yours in the comments!

    Sound wisdom from a lady as young as yourself. Self-esteem is a trap of modernity, a snare meant to preoccupy our attention on how we feel about ourselves. Instead of focusing on ourselves, we should be focusing on how to serve the Lord, and one another.

    When you said this, “We already live in a self-centered society and all we need is more women thinking about themselves.” I am assuming that is sarcasim, or a typo? I’ve reached the same conclusion too. We live in a society that is very shallow, and what is valued is fame and wealth, and physical beauty. Because our society is that way, a beauticul woman really is more likely to be more popular making friends and also with men. That’s reality, so if a woman cares about being accepted and loved by the world, she will care too much about her appearance. But if she is a Christian and loves God, she will value what he values. A woman with a quiet and gentle spirit is of great worth in His sight (1 Peter 3:4.) Be modest, wise, and humble. These are the things I am constantly measuring myself against.
