The predisposition of humans as social beings has somewhat made it a difficulty for most of us to isolate ourselves from others for the right reasons. This is seen in the craving to roll with the majority or crowd and gain a nod of approval from either friends or relations. With little sense of individual peculiarity, such people in particular women wallow in inauthenticity and tend to settle for mediocrity which is usually commonplace. A lot of women fall victim to this way of life and seem to bask in the notion that much is not really expected from them after all. To some extent, this throws light on little or no premium placed on daring to be different and tendency to prioritise wrongly. It is no breaking news that this misunderstanding of what a lady or woman should feed her attention on is a thorn in the skin. This explains the craze for fashion, relationship/marriage, and money that is widespread among most ladies today. Although all the aforementioned are worth having, problem creeps in when they become the ultimate of most females' consideration and dominate their scale of preference. The distance between what truly matters and themselves is so wide, and yet they remain unaware. The nucleus of this discourse is a contention that women should dare to be different in order to make a difference.
Indeed, it is quite rare to find zealous women today that are practically willing to break free from such care-free trends, enhance the society via their talents, and envision to leave their footprints in the sand of time; ladies that are committed to touching lives and unoriginal virtues. Making your existence count is a product of re-prioritising your priorities. It entails calling yourself to order, re-evaluating your interests reflective in your actions, and weighing them on the scale of difference-making/purposefulness. Brandishing your body shape or figure, clothes, relationship status, or material acquisition puts a very big question mark on your person, values, and inevitably the female agitation to be taken seriously summarised in feminism.
Furthermore, don’t be afraid of being different; be afraid of being the same as everyone else. Don’t be a sheep, dare to be different, the world is full of ordinary, be extraordinary! Jane Goodall, a revered UN ambassador, said "You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide the kind of difference you want to make." What are you waiting for?
So, become a lady or woman that her worth transcends her physique or ring on the finger; one that is appreciated due to the impact of her talents and not primarily the beauty of her body; a lady that growing kids, guys and ladies, men and women would look up to and come to value her values; a woman of substance and societal relevance that resonates hope to all. Would you become one? Yes? Make it happen.
