Noble: A princess is a noble young lady who carries herself with poise and dignity. She listens attentively. And when she speaks, she carefully chooses her words. She exercises control over her emotions and makes choices based on what’s right rather than how she feels.
A woman who acts like a princess is attractive, isn’t she?
- A woman who’s secure, confident, and powerful.
- A woman that challenges us to become a better man.
I grew up watching Disney movies and Lord of the Rings as a kid, so the idea of being a hero and winning the heart of a princess has always been on my mind.
But, the “princess mentality” is also something that we’re warned of, often considered a major red flag in dating. Two different kinds of princess mindsets exist: one being gracious, the other being entitled. What are the characteristics of a woman with a healthy princess mentality?
10 Qualities of Healthy Princess Mentality: The Kind You Date and Marry
1. She is humble.
A woman with a healthy princess mentality doesn’t overtly call attention to herself. Her poise and confidence may draw attention, but she doesn’t go out of her way to get people to notice her.
2. She knows her self worth.
She sets boundaries and doesn’t let others walk all over her. She puts her personal requirements before the demands of others.
3. She is selfless.
After she’s taken care of her personal needs, she helps those around her. She cares about her people.
4. She demands respect and honor.
Not in an obnoxious way, but in a firm and unwavering way. She expects respect and honor she is due as a human being. She isn’t demanding in superficial aspects of her life.
5. She’s wise.
She has an opinion and can voice it on a subject with both strength and tact, not with judgment and force.
6. She’s a leader.
She might not be queen, but she can assume the role of leadership at any given moment. She carries herself with authority.
7. She stands up for her faith.
If you pick up a pound coin in England, you’ll see a picture of Queen Elizabeth II with the surrounding words, ELIZABETH II D.G.REG.F.D. “It stands for: ‘Elizabeth II Dei Gratia Regina Fidei Defensor.’ These words are in Latin and they mean: ‘Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, Queen, Defender of the Faith.’”
8. She challenges her man.
Not in a confrontational way, but rather in an evocative way. Women have the unique ability to draw out a man’s desire to be a better man. Women who have a healthy princess mentality naturally call their man to a higher standard, often without realizing it.
9. She doesn’t need a man.
Having a man in her life is no doubt a great source of joy, but a woman with the right mindset sees a relationship as a partnership as well. The man is not her “other half,” he is the “other whole” that makes up the healthy relationship.
10. She knows she’s the daughter of the King.
A woman with a healthy princess mentality is a woman who knows her worth. A princess is a daughter of a king. When women embrace the fact that they, too, have that kind of value, the rest falls into place. And this, men, is the kind of princess you want to pursue.
