Ciara Wilson hit back at critics who dragged her for attempting to share her knowledge of being content with Self Love on Instagram.com.
The retired singer-turned-housewife took to Instagram.com on Saturday to share her intimate knowledge on finding love -- within yourself.
The Dopamine has faded, and now Ciara realizes that -- married or not -- the Love she so eagerly craved all her life was within her all this time.
What's wrong with that message? It's a beautiful come to Jesus moment. Too bad CiCi's IG followers are too immature (or dense) to grasp what she was trying to say.
The "Goodies" singer, who wed American football star Russell Wilson in 2016, took to Instagram on Saturday evening to share a clip from South Carolina-based preacher John Gray's 2016 sermon, in which he listed the things women can do to find a man.
Many of Ciara's followers criticized the mother-of-2 for oversimplifying their search for a husband, and for implying that they will never be happy until they learned to Love themselves first.
Many of her followers took issue with what they claim is Ciara's patronizing attitude.
One Twitter.com user, @CiCiAdams, tweeted:
"Ciara, honey, no. We rooted for you when you were going through your mess. I’m so disappointed that you would share something so silly. What pastor John Gray is saying here is intellectually lazy and a twisting of scripture. That’s not what Prov. 18:22 meant at all."
The Twitter user added: "Ciara is doing what many women do when they overcome trials and get married. She’s using her marital status as a weapon against women who are not married."
"Ciara’s playing a dangerous game. You should never, no matter how perfect your relationship/marriage appears to be, sit on a throne and tell people why they’re not romantically successful. You can be the queen of the ball today and have cake in your face tomorrow!"
Ciara hit back at her critics with a post insisting she was only trying to encourage her young followers to love themselves rather than look outwardly for a Love that exists internally.
"I was once that girl wanting to be loved a certain way but was making the wrong choices. I found myself at my lowest moment. I was a single mom sitting at home, and then I realized that the perfect love I was looking for was how God loves me, how He wants me to be loved, and who He was calling me to be as a mom and a woman. That’s when I realized married or not married… I needed to love myself. #LevelUp."
(bold emphasis mine)
It's heartwarming to see young women like Ciara finally get it. This is a lesson that takes some women 50 years to learn. Kudos to Ciara for figuring it out at the tender age of 32!
