Some Things Should Remain a Mystery

 
Dictionary.com defines “modesty” as:
–noun
1.  the quality of being modest; freedom from vanity, boastfulness, etc.
2.  regard for decency of behavior, speech, dress, etc.
3.  simplicity; moderation.
 
Today, I want to focus on the second definition, and a bit on the third.
A lot of girls I see today are not too concerned with modesty.  They wear low cut, skin tight shirts and low rise, skin tight jeans that often let a lot of things “hang loose” if you know what I mean.  They put themselves on display for the whole world to see, and sadly, this also puts them on display to be judged.
These girls often think that by putting their bodies on display they will get attention. They usually do get attention, but none of it is healthy.  The attention they get is all negative, and instead of feeling better about themselves, they end up feeling a lot worse.
I know a girl who could be described perfectly by what I just wrote.  She is beautiful, curvy girl with an awesome personality and a great smile.  However, she was feeling really insecure about never having a boyfriend.  She began to dress in a way she thought would “attract” a boyfriend: low cut shirt, skin tight jeans, short skirts and dresses.  Instead of getting a boyfriend, boys began to treat her as an “object”: they didn’t care about her, they just liked how she looked.  Girls began to dislike her as well, calling her names behind her back about her body and gossiping relentlessly about the nasty attention she was getting from boys.  This girl ended up even more unhappy than she was originally before starting to dress immodestly.  After realizing that what she was doing wasn’t working, she started to wear clothes that fit and flattered her figure, and most importantly, were modest.  She felt a lot better about herself after that.

 

In short, the clothes you wear and the way you dress is not what determines your worth.  Most often the most beautiful girl in the room is the one who respects her body and herself.
