What do I have to do to be considered woman enough?
Is it the way that I dress? I enjoy being comfortable. For me, comfortable is jeans, sneakers, and a tee but should I dress in such a way at my age. Im only 28 but it seems like I should dress differently. Why don’t I like heels, and dresses. Do I wear them occasionally? Yes. Most woman my age wouldn’t be caught without heels on. So to not turn people completely off I’ve swapped my sneakers for some flats. At least its not sneakers, right?
Is it the way I wear my hair? Give me two pigtails or a brush my hair into a Bun and I’m a happy camper. What 28 year old wears their hair like Rudy Huxtable all the darn time. I should be getting my hair done every 2 weeks along with a Mani/Pedi. These are things I should want to do but I don’t. Don’t get me wrong, who doesn’t like to be pampered, but it’s not a priority to me.
What do guys think about me? Should I be worried? The fact that I haven’t been in a relationship for…quite some time now…. would be worrisome to most. I honestly don’t mind it. Would I like to get married someday…yes. It is just not at the top of my to do list. I enjoy being by-myself and content with my life at the moment. I like hanging out with guys,I just don’t want anything serious. To clarify, when I say hanging out I mean hanging out ONLY. No Netflix and chill over here! I’ve made my commitments to God and plan on seeing it through. Have I become to comfortable with being Single? I think I may have, to where the possibility of a relationship is viewed as a potential Invasion of space.
Having contemplated all of the above, I have come to the conclusion that I am who I am. I will continue to do what makes me happy, and leave societies views as to where I should be financially, spiritually, and emotionally on a book shelf out of my reach. I know there is still much for me to learn and I will. I know the right guy will come into my life and he will make me feel comfortable enough to share my space with him. Until that day comes I will strive to be the best me that God wants me to be. I will share my love with the world, through my words and my daily interactions with people. I am enough for God therefore I am woman enough. Love yourself, stay humble and put God first.
