Honestly, I had absolutely no idea what I was going to write about for today’s post. But after recent events on Twitter (I’ll not bore you with the details), I was suddenly inspired. It may be short and ‘ranty’, but it’s a blog post all the same.
Girls hating on other girls. I see it everywhere. Whether it’s on a reply to a photo on Instagram or a bitchy remark on Twitter. Whether it’s about their makeup or clothes or boys or the amount of money they have, some girls just can’t be nice to other girls.
Maybe it’s in our DNA? I don’t know. But for one, I know that I don’t get anything from putting other girls down. It’s such an unattractive trait and extremely unnecessary. So why do some of us still do it?
Throughout my entire childhood I was bullied by other girls, for the way I look (you can find more here) and because my family couldn’t afford things others could. It made me feel horrible. I know that not everyone has been the victim of bullying (thankfully), but everyone has had at least one nasty comment directed at them, right? If you have, you will never forget that feeling in the pit of your stomach. So why would you want to make someone else feel the way you did?
To all you girls out there, who insist on putting others down,
We should make each other feel good. We should compliment that lip shade or eye makeup, even if it’s not our style. We should celebrate our similarities and our differences. We should be proud of what all women have achieved and how far we have come. Not constantly make each other feel shit, simply because of who we are. Stop competing. Stop the bitching.
