All of us want to feel beautiful, and we all should believe that we are – no matter what we look like. I’m not talking about the airbrushed, magazine standard of beauty. I’m talking about the “comfortable in my own skin – inside out” type of beauty. However, this confidence shouldn’t be confused with arrogance or entitlement. Some of us have been told that we’re beautiful for as long as we can remember, thus our general vision of ourselves is based on what is reflected around us by other people. As flattering as that may be, some women may develop what has been called Pretty Girl Syndrome, which involves confusing your identity with your appearance – basing everything that you are on what you look like. After all, if EVERYONE says you’re beautiful, it MUST be true, right? There is nothing wrong with taking pride in your appearance, but at what point does this become an obsession to the point where you believe you have “pretty people problems”? Not sure? If the following is you, you may have Pretty Girl Syndrome.
I remember the first time I was called a “Daddy’s Girl.” The person who gave me that title told me that any girl referred to as “Princess” – a name my dad always calls me – has to be spoiled, which he equated with being a daddy’s girl.
However, my definition of a daddy’s girl is a woman whose sense of self has been greatly influenced by her relationship with her father, which is not necessarily a bad thing if she is the apple of his eye. Being adored and cherished by her father usually sets the stage for how a woman wants to be treated in her relationships. While some women can be a bit spoiled or self-absorbed, being a daddy’s girl could simply mean that she demands the attention, affection or respect from men that she deserves, and she won’t settle for less. If you’re not sure if you’re dating a daddy’s girl, pay attention to see if she displays any of these characteristics…and then see if you stand a chance. Good luck with that!
