A Confident Woman – Who Is She?  

 Women should not be competing with each other, but instead, they should learn how to empower and build one another.

Woman Of God 

The Bible describes her as someone who does not do malicious talks but is temperate and trustworthy of everything.   (1 Timothy 3:11)   

 

A confident woman is said to be the one who knows what she wants and knows her worth.  She is not just beautiful outside but on the inside as well.   Proverbs 11:16 describes her as kindhearted.

She is someone who dresses modestly, with decency and dignity, (1 Timothy 2:9) and adorns herself with good deeds. (1 Timothy 2:10) 

 

A confident woman of God, Ms. Joyce Meyer, says that a confident woman is she who has confidence in God because she believes that God loves her unconditionally.  God prepares her to be able to face any situation, may it be in a complicated relationship, a mother raising a problematic child, etc.  And she can recover from the setbacks life brings in her life and go on with confidence and without fear.  

 Regardless, it is a necessary part of life to be able to go from caterpillar to butterfly. To shed our current skin to allow for growth. — Emma K. Viglucci LMFT

Rules Over Rejection 

 

A woman who once suffered from domestic abuse said she has confidence in the power of hard work and rejection.  She has learned to embrace failure and channel it to have a grasp of success.   

Who would not know who J. K. Rowling is and her remarkable story?   She wrote Harry Potter that was rejected by publishers 12 times before someone gave it a chance and rose to fame.   From failure, she discovered her strong will and discipline that she was never aware she possessed.     

 

Failure gave her confidence and it taught her that it is impossible to live without failing at something.   

 

With her fame and success, she gives back by becoming a regular contributor to different charities together with her own called Lumos (a family-based care service).  Lumos aims to stop institutionalization of children all over the world.   

 The quote simply states that: “[t]he greatest happiness is curiosity”, and I know it to be true; the lack of curiosity often leads to a dull, unchallenging, and boring life for many of us, and if it’s not addressed, depression can often follow closely behind. — Suzanne St. John Smith Psy.D.

Knows Her Value As A Woman 

 

Women are valuable and powerful and are deserving of every chance and opportunity wherever she is.  Feel confident about yourself because you have a lot of amazing qualities that will enable you to live a life where you can have the respect of others and the happiness you just genuinely deserve.  Don’t deny yourself of that.   

 

Hermione in the “Harry Potter” movie, Emma Watson, inspires confidence in women of all ages.  She urges the women to go out, make mistakes, and learn from them because womanhood is a journey where you learn from experience.   

She gives emphasis to the idea that women can definitely do what they want to do and be who they want to be without letting anyone tell them what they can and can’t do.  That is because no one has the right to decide who you are – you can do that for yourself. 

 We feel confident about our appearance, our intelligence, personality, and our abilities and don’t worry about what other people think of us. It shows the degree to which we have self-respect and believe we deserve respect from others. — Darlene Lancer, JD, MFT

It may be hard and confusing to be confident yourself.   It’s a process where you can be treated harshly, but ultimately once you put your heart into it and believe in it, you will be amazed at how it can bring you places, how it can make your dreams come true.    

 

Confidence is having a firm trust in God that He empowers you so you can make it despite all the obstacles.   Learn to listen, but also try your best to confirm. You may not always want it, but if you think constructively, it is one great way to improve yourself.

It’s okay to admire and idolize a confident woman but just be your unique self, not a copycat because there’s no happiness in seeing a different person in your mirror.  It is your own uniqueness that will leave a mark – a uniqueness created by the confident woman in you.   

 

Are you that woman?
