Rooted; (Verb) To cause something (or someone) to grow roots.
There are those among us who have been rendered to the most. The most intellect, the most socioculturally accepted beauty, most wealth, most friends, most family goodness. It led for what only appears to be an easy life. Many of us girls, through insecure lenses put girls with most on an invisible pedestal of what they should be or for those even more contrary may have said things like, “well I will never be that way,” or “I would hate to be like that because…” riddled with jealousy these comments were spilled out in an equally foolish manner as the invisible pedestal. As if their worth wasn’t enough just by being them. No, dyed hair, diets, and changed personalities to become more like the most popular girl in their world has become more important than any personal value they once had. There are still others of us who have have lofty ideas and are happily grimacing at perfect teeth and glamorously appointed lifestyles. Through a sarcastically clothed demeanor, some of us have drawn deep and dividing lines, to keep themselves from anything but those like themselves. These of us no longer have the aptitude to compare but have given up all together in putting their worth in anything other than being anti everything. Are we truly only worth the value of our popularity, or for some of us, the value of not being popular?
Unbeknownst to all of us despite our good (or bad) intentions, worldly (un)success, or (im)perfected beauty we hold influence in our own world of other girls attempting to be like us. That statement of course brings the word, ‘but’, and a million excuses quickly following, however that statement holds truth it’s only the matter of you believing it or not. So what do you, my dear, do with the importance given to only you? Firstly, may you trust me, when I say that you are perfectly created just the way you are despite that mole, birth mark, or ‘unbecoming’ scar? Leap past the limiting value of popular or not and enter into a girlhood of simplicity leaned into the perfection of Christ. He brings all comparisons down to a silenced mute and reassures you of His blood-bought value given to you enriched with princess-ed royalty. Beloved daisies and empowered warrior princesses, remember who you are and eliminate the before drawn lines in your world between one another. Begin a revolutionary force of rooted, confident, and united love.
Would you join me, dear ones?
