Whether it’s a desperate battle of the thinnest or most attractive – it’s no secret that women often engage in jealous competition with each other. Although such behavior may seem harmless, the nature of female competition is often envy ridden and endless. This negative behavior also attracts the inevitable outcome of hurt and disaster.
Women often endure daily, stressful situations, commonly involving husbands, boyfriends and men in general. The discovery of a cheating partner is a heartbreaking example, in which women too frequently blame the “other woman,” not the cheater. The situation sometimes escalates between women, possibly leading to verbal and physical altercations. Jealously and emotional pain are the transcendent causes for this grotesque behavior.
Females have been taught that it’s best to be conventionally attractive, from their hairstyle to bust size, all girls are given standards to live up to. Some women also allow themselves to become regulated by the cosmetic standards of every day society. This particular conformation is usually suggested by the constant alteration of their own look and is also done to please high exceptions. Although it’s completely healthy to beautify and maintain your personal look – this is a however, a common situation of unhealthy, media conformation.
Instead of maturely dealing with their own problems, insecure women may feel the urge to compete with each other. Such competition usually involves physical appearance, with intentions to gain false confidence and feelings of worth. These feelings are explainable, however, given one reoccurring message – the tired belief that a female’s outward appearance is dependent and related, to her personal worth.
Convinced women firmly believe they have to religiously keep a gorgeous appearance to live well and obtain desires. These females are of course “brainwashed,” into the mindset that their appearance will “manipulate” to their advantage, to receive a perfect promotion or attract a decent man. And sometimes even without realization, females still continue to honor the exhausted, disturbing message. Females often even display a jealous, hatred towards other beautiful women, as the attractive are presumed to “get what they want.”
With an attachment to false media messages, women may find it most difficult to break their habit and developed pattern of jealousy. Even posed difficulty however, is inferior to the degree of degradation that females put onto each other by mere envy. Jealous, spiteful girls should now realize that it’s essential to face personal issues, head on. Since we’re all just human and insecure in some way or another.
Women should also notice these similarities and then make the point by befriending or accepting other strong females. It is also crucial, to embrace whatever you’re hiding from through the managed facade of insecurity. Putting others down is a poor attempt at self empowerment which is currently practiced all too frequently among all women alike.
