Jealousy monger

I invoke a lot of jealousy. I have no idea why. I assume people are taken aback by a confident, pretty girl, who knows what she wants in life and is not going to let anyone in her way. Men like a woman who is naive, gullible, wallflower. They do not take too kindly to a woman who is strong, has a head on her shoulder, is not coy, is not available. Women too get shocked of such independent and confident creature. Why can't a woman be strong, kick- ass and intelligent, without being objectified? Why should a woman find ways to find herself acceptable to men? Why are men afraid of women's strengths?
Jealousy is a tribute the mediocrity pays. A competent person is incapable of jealousy. Bigotry leads to insecurity. There is a jumble of secret worship and ostensible aversion. What do I do to handle neurotic insecurity? I shrug it off and be myself. Guruji says, "Do not be a football of other people's opinions."
I am no bakery. I do not sugar coat anything. If you ask for my opinion, then that is what you will get. Do not be mad when it is not what you want to hear. I may not be perfect but at least I am not fake.
