Mean Girls

My sisterhood award got me thinking because I'm currently dealing with some mean girls!

Why are women (in general) so caddy and downright mean?

I know, not ALL women, but a good population of them. And even some that are not naturally like that, seem to get sucked into the drama. I know that it is hard not to sometimes.

Friends gossiping and talking behind each others back is so hurtful, sad and annoying. It doesn't matter the age, it's always as if they're in junior high!

We should be forming "packs" and making friends, not competing and trying to cause emotional pain to one another.

Is it in our nature? Or is it learned?

Also, does anyone know of any good quotes that go along the lines of any of this?

girls are just awful, that's all there is too it! ;-)

i have had two best friends for 10 years now and it is SO hard for me to make new *good* friends because women can just be so competitive and hard to get along with. so sad, but often true!

anyway, i recognize the rosanna stuff now! i've been wanting the "12 days of christmas" stuff for awhile now. i just can't give in and purchase it - maybe next christmas???!!!

I always preferred to hang out with guys in high school because it was more relaxed...no cattiness, jealousy, rumors, etc. We should all be nicer! lol

I think it all stems down to Fear or Rejection. I know for a fact that there have been times when I have felt insecure about parts of myself, and I think that pulling down other people is a way that we can build ourselves up and not feel so bad, or so alone in our faults. I hate cattiness and all that drama, but I have to confess, that I have been part of it in the past.

I agree...women can be nasty! I think that's why most of my friends have always been males. I'd really like a good group of girlfriends, but it's so difficult meeting new ones. Many don't seem to want to make new friends...it's like they have enough already.

I know I already told you I was burned by a close girlfriend recently. It stinks. :(

And I think reality tv these days just perpetuates this problem! Look at all of the crap shows like Bad Girls Club, etc....sick.

i agree. and it's sad. but i do know lots of incredible women out there who are drama free and such dears.

it's hard to sift through the mean ones, but once you do, life is lovely!!!

I think it's learned behavior. Insecurities...etc. There are a lot of great strong women out there, who are true friends. Those you can cry to (snot running down included) and they would really be there. Then those who can't wait to hash out your dirty laundry to whoever will listen. It's better to have one true friend then 10 fake friends. Now that we live in a more superficial society I think it's gotten tougher to find those amazing people! But I totally believe they're out there!
