“What is a good woman?” believe me, this question has boggled my mind for many years. I have met thousands of people, and everyone has had a different idea of what a good woman is. We are our beliefs, our experiences, our environment, and importantly, what we think. Our culture and basic upbringing have a lot to add to what we see as a good woman.
Our perceptions, our deep-rooted beliefs, and society’s values determine who we see as a good or a bad woman. For instance, if a woman is adventurous, puts herself first, smokes, or parties, we tend to label them as bad women based on their bad habits. However, once we remain fixated on these bad habits, we tend to overlook and say kindness or any other good personality trait we look for. We should try to focus on the personality traits and find those we are compatible with. Because at the end of the day, we will resonate and like those who match us or have the values we value.
Kindness and caring go a long way towards goodness though. People who are not mean-spirited are usually pretty good too. Honesty helps because people who lie a lot are generally not great. I personally like bold, fierce, and strong-minded women. Thoughtful and intelligent helps but I also know a woman who Doesn’t have a high IQ who is one of the kindest women I have ever met. And I know some super-smart ladies who are some of the nastiest people I know.
