What I do not understand is why women are so mean to one another. This is unacceptable. When you speak poorly about someone to anyone, it says much more about you. The person you are bashing or voicing your opinion about, they usually always find out but may be too hurt to say anything.
So when you use social media to make subtle jabs to get at your friends rather than speaking TO them, that is not okay. When you have a conflict and say nothing but use insults to cope, it is not okay. It is mean and it can really do a lot of damage to people.
I recently had to draw a few “lines”, not end friendships, but create boundaries because I am sensitive and I have been faced with unnecessary cruelness.
We will never agree with everyone we meet, that is okay.
We will have differences in opinions about simple things like hairstyles and differences about more complex issues like same sex marriage and the way we parent, this is also okay!
Being different is a great thing. Being different does not mean we have to talk bad about one another. Be kind, its free and it is easy. If you find it is hard … dig deep down and fix what is broken in you.
