Real Reasons to Dress Up for Your Husband
By Megan Wyatt, Founder of Wives of Jannah
I don’t buy into the idea of having to dress up because other women are doing it outside, on T.V, the internet or at your husband’s job.
I spent so much of my life wrapped up in that insecure world, going all the way back to middle school. That’s where it all begins, and for some women, it never ever ends.
I do not change the way I dress for my husband due to the insecure belief that I have to give him something to look at that is as good or better than women out there in the world.
I dress for him, or because of him, because it is part of how I honor him.
When your husband knows that you did something just for him, whether it’s touching up your make-up before dinner, wearing a pretty dress, or applying your favorite lotion before crawling into bed, it increases his love and appreciation for you.
He thinks, “she did that all for me?” and appreciates the time, effort, and care you went through to put your best foot forward.
It’s about the fact that you went out of your way, and did something beyond the everyday that warms his heart. (And be nice ladies. Some of you may master this every day but not everyone can or does!)
It’s celebrating a moment where he is the only man in the whole world who get’s this version of you.
A man values those words, “only him."
Contrary to popular belief, if you are trying to win his approval from an insecure place, neither will he be satisfied with you in the long run, or will you feel loved and appreciated for all of your efforts.
Doing any action out of desperation, insecurity, competition, or to become worthy of love will leave you feeling empty, lonely, and eventually bitter.
Dress up, dress less, dress however you want to honor your husband, to pamper yourself, and to feel truly beautiful externally.
Just remember that your neeyah and being a sensual, strong, and secure woman is what makes your beauty radiate.
With that breath of fresh air, reevaluate where your beliefs about beauty and how you dress are in your mind and see if your actions leave you feeling wholesome, loved, and filled with a positive energy for life.
If not, it's time to make some shifts!
