Am I this Beautiful?
Have you ever experienced a situation whereby people, especially men pass you a compliment that you are so beautiful?
I am certain that you must have received such a compliment at one time or the other. But wait! If a man tells you that you are beautiful, did he say it as a mere compliment or because he just want to play on your heart, sleep with you and later dump you? You need to be careful. Let me quickly share a little story with you.
Some years back, I was sitting at the front of my work place then, enjoying the fresh air in the cool of the day, when a very pretty lady strolled by and greeted everyone seated on the verandah of the shopping complex.
After she had walked past, some group of men taking soft drinks at the next shop started talking about her to the point that for the first time in my life, I felt so ashamed to be a woman.
They analyzed all her private parts and cracked jokes about her reaction whenever she was having sex. The worst part of it was that they likened her private parts to that of a Sixty year old woman. What! Where did that come from?
As in? I didn’t understand… could it be true? A pretty lady of let’s say 23 years or thereabouts. I was angered. Not because of the situation of the lady but because of the way the men were discussing her in public.
According to those men, almost everyone of them has had sex with her at least once. The same men who must have once told her how beautiful she was just to make them succeed in getting in between her legs. I concluded that it wasn’t their fault but that of the Lady. She sold her self and her destiny to those men on a platter of rubbish. So shameful.
Dear Lady, have you always been told that you are beautiful? Of course you are, that is no News! Once you realize that yourself, one player cannot just surface out of no where to start telling you what you know.
When a man says : ‘Wow! You are such a beauty!’ Do not let that get into your head. So what? You are not the first to be beautiful and certainly not going to be the last. “THANK YOU” is the only response you owe him. Any other thing? You zoom off!
Remember the story I just shared with you. If you give in foolishly to him, he will one day discuss how useless you are with his friends. A man who wants to marry you will not be busy cajoling you with your physical characteristics until you lose your memory.
‘You are beautiful!’ is a statement that has gotten into the heads of so many ladies and has destroyed their destinies, please do not be a victim. Do not be deceived, when most of those men are ready to get married, they look for godly ladies that are chaste, they won’t go for any of the ladies they have used and dumped. From today, determine to be wise. I wish you all the best. I care for you
