You may think this is an article about self breast exams and mammograms. And while those are important for breast cancer prevention, that’s not what I’m fired up about today.
I’m often stunned by girls feeling the need to share their girls with other people. It seems to scream, “Hey, look at me, I need attention. I need to be noticed.”
This trend is just as epidemic among married women as it is with singles. I don’t want to attempt to determine why we feel the need to play show and tell with our ta-ta’s. All I know is it’s not necessary to share with everyone to be sexy.
Men love them, I know.
So if you’re married, save yours for your man. The men at work, in the grocery store, walking down the street, or at church really do not need to sneak a peek at your cleavage.
If you’re single, may I suggest you will get more respectful interest from the type of guy you would probably want to keep, if you would cover yourself. You can still be sexy and cover the girls. For purity’s sake, save your ta-ta’s for your future husband. He deserves it.
The world says if we’ve got it, we should flaunt it. To choose to dress with some class and modesty goes completely against cultural norms. And if we do, we will face criticism for it.
I wrote an article a few months ago called, Girls and Their Girls: too much of a good thing. This article was posted by a website called Is This Modest? From this, I received a couple of the nastiest comments ever in all my years of writing. One angry reader at Is This Modest wrote…
Cleavage does NOT scream insecurity. Feeling your cheeks go hot with embarrassment upon seeing part of another woman’s breasts screams insecurity. Writing an article about the way OTHER women choose to dress themselves screams insecurity. Asserting that women who dress in a way of which you don’t approve are “hated by other women” screams insecurity. Assuming that your relationship with your god is contingent on the amount of skin you show and trying to convince other women of that absolutely screams insecurity.
I’m glad you happened on this article. Obviously what I’ve written has upset you. Though I was making no direct attack at you, apparently you felt I was. This is a bold statement you’re making about my security, or lack thereof, without knowing me personally:) I realize not everyone is going to agree or believe what I believe. I’m approving this comment, because we’ve all been given a right to choose what to believe and how we will treat people who believe differently. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Feel free to visit my website any time.
Respectfully and in all sincerity,
I share this to say, sometimes we have to decide where we stand and stand firm on it, regardless of what the world says.
Truth is, if you stand up for modesty and purity and the things of God, you WILL be attacked. You will be ridiculed and persecuted sometimes. And guess what! God sees it all! He understands. He’s been there. Do you think Jesus was never persecuted? Think again.
So save your ta-ta’s for your husband alone, even if the world tells you otherwise. God will honor your courage to take a stand!
