A girl or woman should be very cautious and discerning about who she chooses for her Role Models, as the choice shapes who you become yourself and what values you choose to live out.
A Princess of God living Biblical values needs to choose for her examples, heroic women, in the Bible and Saintly women in Church Tradition, and above all women of course, the Blessed Mother Mary, ever Virgin. These are the women worth emulating and the women that will lead you on the path to life.
Modern ‘role models’ are unfortunately all too often covered with the trappings of success yet lacking in the inner riches and interior life, mastery over self, that make someone worth being a ‘role model’.
“What does it matter if you can win a thousand battles if you cannot win against your own corrupt passions? It doesn’t matter. The real battle is with ourselves.” – Bl. Carlo Acutis
What does it matter, dear Princess of God, if a ‘role model’ is beautiful and has worldly success, but they are trapped in sin? These are not the women you want to follow as they are not the Beauty Standards in Jesus’ eyes. You too, were meant for real beauty and real success – and the kind of ‘role models’ that many mistakenly choose in their youth can define them for years to come, negatively. Choose instead to follow the path of the Saints, and of course, their ultimate role model, Jesus.
This will make you stand out and be different from the world and perhaps your friends and peer group, but it is better to be different and right, following the path of timeless value than to be incorrect with ‘the times’ or ‘society’ or ‘the crowd’.
Choose to be instead, a contemporary of Christ. Live each day as though it were still the time of the gospels and live by the values that do not change because Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
