All right, let's talk. Something is really bugging me and I want to get it off my chest. So do I have your full attention here? Okay.
Why is it that we women as a species are so brutally hard on each other? I seriously do not get it. I want someone to explain it to me. Why are we so threatened by one another? Why do we feel the need to be so critical of other women? I am surrounded by this on a daily basis. Women criticizing other women, behind their backs most of the time, for the way they eat, dress, behave professionally or otherwise, parent their kids, treat their husbands, clean their houses, etc.
I AM SO SICK OF IT!!
And I am taking a stand. Right here and right now. I will not be a part of this behavior anymore. (Unless it involves talking about celebrities, and then it is totally okay, wink wink.)
One thing I am so thankful for as a woman, is my ability to connect with other people, mostly women. I really think that women forge deeper friendships because we are naturally more emotional. And men, you are welcome to argue with me about this. I am not saying everyone, I am saying in general.
But at the same time, we women are so much more cruel than men. Women can be so good to each other, and also so very evil. Are you following me here, people??
Let's stop tearing each other down. Let's stop all the judging, the back biting, and all around bitchiness. Lets just get along. Let's break the cycle of Mean Girls for the sake of our daughters. Okay?? Because really, isn't it so much easier to be nice?
Because who really cares if the girl you work with dresses a little skanky? Maybe she thinks she looks good. Maybe she is comfortable. And what's it to you if your friend feeds her kid McDonald's twice a week. Maybe this is how she is getting by right now. And how is it any of your business if your cousin's neighbor's sister's daughter's teacher snaps at her husband too much. Maybe it will remind you to be nicer to your husband as an example to others. And how does it hurt you if a certain blogger you know really sucks at keeping up with the laundry folding and forgot to mop her floors for a month. Maybe her microwave is super clean and her families clothes are ironed and you didn't even know it.
Maybe those women we are talking about and turning our nose up at need our support, our encouragement, our understanding. And NOT our judgement.
Because we have all been there. We have all made bad choices. We have all yelled at our families in moments of frustration. We have all looked the other way when we were too exhausted to deal with something. We have all committed fashion faux pas. We have all eaten that second, third or fourth cookie. We have all had moments where we acted or reacted unprofessionally. Because guess what?? We are human and we all make mistakes.
So can we stop the madness please? Can we stop acting like such wretched hags and give each other a flipping break??
Are you with me?? Okay, come on. Group hug.
Oh I feel so much better.
Please note - before any of you ask - No, this had nothing to do with you or anything you said or did or anything I may have heard you said or did. This is a random and general observation about the behavior of women and how we can be so awesome, yet suck so much at the same time. Mmmmkay? Love you all!!
