Dear beautiful Lady, Develop a Positive Self-image (part A).
There are people most especially women that suffer from a poor
self-image especially negative body image because of the way they
perceive their body to be. In this age of slim fit and figure eight
obsession some are questioning God why he created them the way they
are. As a result of poor self-image so many ladies that gone to extra
mile to acquire what they feel is the ideal beautiful lady. Indecent
exposure of sensitive body parts and also plastic surgery for beauty
enhancement are all linked to poor self-image.
Dear beautiful lady do you see yourself as too short, too fat, too
tall, too dark, having small breasts, too dull, you know you are just
not the ideal beauty queen you fancy. Check your self, you might be
having a negative self-image.
Self-image refers to the idea one has of one's abilities, appearance,
and personality. Self image is how you see yourself. This may be how
you see yourself physically or your opinion of who and what you are.
There this movie I watched that I want to share with you. It's an
American movie forgive me for I do not know the name, I just watched a
part of it and that part really touched me.
The heroine of the movie went to a dry cleaner, while she was there a
man came in with his jacket that he wanted them to wash. The man
dropped his jacket with the owner and kept staring at her without
saying anything. After some time he said to her “you are attractive”
and left smiling. The lady was dumbfounded. She was shocked and at the
same time surprised. She just stood there looking lost. When she
recovered the man has gone. She then in disbelief asked the owner
“did he just say am attractive”.
The owner replied
“I do not know”.
She enquired if he knew the man or where he went to and he told her
no. This lady quickly ran out of the shop to look for the man that
told her she was attractive. But he was gone.
I know You might be wondering why the lady is behaving that way. This
lady is a divorcee, having seperated from her husband and with three
kids she felt she wasn't attractive anymore. So it was a big deal for
her that somebody told her she was attractive. Even her children
noticed the joy in her life simply because someone told her she is
attractive. The lady went and told her friends about the man who told
her she was attractive and they all went out looking for the man who
told her she was attractive. They browsed and searched for the mystery
man all to no avail.
This is what negative self image can do to someone. But this lady in
question is actually very beautiful and attractive. But her perception
of her self limited her. Now my dear attractive lady what is the
perception you have about yourself. What is the mental picture that
you have about yourself.
Are you a beautiful and attractive lady. Are you a good person.
Are you smart.
Are you in love with yourself.
Are you in love with your body.
Are you intelligent.
Self image includes:
*.What you think you look like
*.How you see your personality
*.What kind of person you think you are
*.What you believe others think of you
*.How much you like yourself or you think others like you
*.The status you feel you have
Before I go today I want to tell You that “You are Attractive”.
