YOU’RE MORE THAN YOUR BODY

YOU’RE MORE THAN YOUR BODY

I’m writing this article for the ladies. “Why the ladies now”?, you may ask. Well, i don’t know; maybe because am a lady 🙂

Very unlike in the days of our forefathers when the size of a woman was a sign of the husband’s affluence, these days, people go to any length to achieve an hour glass shape, aside from the regular exercising, some use pills and some even go as far as surgery. It’s in our days that people almost kill themselves to have a perfect body.

It is important to be healthy, fit and have a great shape; but the context of this discussion is to remind the ladies of the need to give their minds and spirit a lot more attention that their bodies. I’ve met ladies who cannot sit to have an intelligent conversation because they’ve got close to nothing upstairs. Every spare time is spent in Idle gossip and reading soft sell magazines, nothing developmental at all. Not everybody goes to school, but nobody has the excuse of not being able to be good at something, and being versatile and knowledgable in today’s world is key. Men respect women who have something to say and can make meaningful contributions, such women are assets.

Women need to be empowered to see themselves in the right light. Some ladies don’t attend a function because they don’t have the aso ebi and people might make fun of them. Some buy on credit or borrow just to measure up, some lose their confidence because they feel they’re not as pretty or shapely as the next person, and so rob themselves of the potential to be the best. There’s so much value placed on the body at the detriment of the mind and spirit.

You don’t need to attend one to know that every party always has a lot more ladies than guys. I had to ask why? And i think because ladies get money there that help them maintain the lifestyle of living large and they keep coming back for more. Anything you get with your body and doesn’t require the constructive use of your mind will not last. Ladies have dumped guys with potential for “ready mades” all because of immediate gratification.

On the other hand, based on past abuse, some ladies have developed a low self esteem. They see every guy as wanting to have sex with them, and ultimately give their bodies as a means of keeping a man. NO WOMAN HAS EVER KEPT A MAN BY HAVING SEX WITH HIM, NONE! So, i’ll advise you increase the value you place on yourself, carry yourself gracefully and with dignity. Invest in yourself, acquire skills, get knowledge and use it, task yourself, stretch and grow, cultivate progressive associations until you become invaluable, because yes, you can!

We have too much to give, to our homes, places of work and society at large. We have capacity to take pressures and profer solutions, capacity to conceive ideas and bring to birth, capacity to nurture to adulthood. Lady, rise up, because you’re more than your body.var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);

    Preach it! Too much emphasis placed on the outer appearance at the detriment of the inner man…….The lengths some of us go to ‘meet up’ to man-made standards is quite saddening.

    Beautiful post.
