One of the most beautiful and incredible things God gave woman is their intuition to see to the heart of a man, and know whether or not he is someone to be respected. If you are uneasy, trust yourself. And if you are sure, be extravagant.
Those who refuse to give you grace have never experienced it themselves. Have compassion for those who judge you. They are hurting.
Loving yourself is not self-centered, or unChristian. It is agreeing to see the value Jesus already assigned to you, & begs you to see.
Think of a girl you really love and admire. Picture her in your mind. Would you love and admire her more if she lost 10 pounds? No? Then stop treating yourself that way. No one else does.
