10 Signs You Went to a Girls’ School

10 Signs You Went to a Girls’ School

Going to an all girl’s school has its benefits and disadvantages. If you went to an all girls’ school, you really know what it was like. While it wasn’t all perfect, it wasn’t all bad either. So what’s it like going to an all girls’ school? Find out here:

1. You experienced twice the amount of drama

Girls in high school can be downright mean and having an all-female student body, doubles the drama. There is more room for cliques and mean girl behavior in this environment and it can be torture if you happen to be excluded from the in-crowd.

2. You didn’t have to worry about boys

One benefit of an girls’ school is that you don’t have the distraction of boys in any of your classes. This makes it easier to focus and contribute in class without worrying about embarrassing yourself in front of your crush in history class. It is scientifically proven that girls performed better in this environment than if they were at a co-ed environment.

3. You did miss having guys friends at school

Sometimes it is ice to have a couple of guy friends to hang out and escape the drama that is common within your group of girlfriends. In a school backed with other girls you did not have the chance to hang out with guys until after school. Finding a solid group of guy friends may have taken some time because you had to look for them outside of school.

4. You didn’t have to put as much effort into your appearance

Getting ready for school wass a breeze because you know that there is no cute guy in history to impress. Your everyday uniform does not vary from t-shirts, jeans and minimal make-up. Dressing more casually, allows you to focus on other things, like studying an extra half an hour for your AP English exam.

5. You felt awkward in encounters with males outside of school

When you are attending an all-girl’s school, interaction with males is often slim and reserved for weekends and dances. When you go to a co-ed school it is a reflection of the real world and allows you to practice interacting with males in varying types of situations that a female-only school does not provide.

6. You weren’t feel embarrassed to excel

In co-ed schools girls often feel embarrassed to show their skill in math or science due to an unspoken rule that this is a male-dominated area. When boys are not present in the classroom, girls often do not feel as intimidated and learn that they can really shine in these areas as much as their male-counterparts.

7. You had a crush on the young cute male teacher

When there is a lack of testosterone in your school and a young male teacher is present, there is bound to be at least a few crushes on him. Although this situation many seem innocent, this can create a great amount of distraction and competition during class among students vying for his attention.

8. You easily found feminine products when it is your time of the month

When your period unexpectedly happens and you need a tampon, you know you are bound to find at least one girl that has an extra one. You also know that all your classmates can be empathetic towards your situation, because they know the inconvenience firsthand. There is nothing like having a student body full of girls that understood your issues just as much as you understood theirs.

9. You had to play your fair share of male characters in the school play

Being the avid theater enthusiast that you are, you have learned to be versatile in not only the type of characters, but also learning to play the opposite sex. Time in girls’ schools may lead to numerous awkward moments on stage, but it likely made you a better actor in the end.

10. You weren’t limited to certain sports

In a co-ed school, boys’ sports teams can often outshine girls’ ones and provide more variety for males. In an all-girl’s school this is never an issue and you are free to try out for any team you want or if it does not exist you can petition to create one.

8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

8 Powerful Reasons to Love Your Enemies

We’ve all got our enemies; people who take pleasure in causing us pain and misery. Sometimes, the development of an enemy is due to certain differences in your characters and events have led to that. Other times, some people end up hating you for apparently no reason at all.

Regardless of how you got this enemy, as opposed to the paradigm of fighting fire with fire, consider the following reasons and see why you should actually appreciate your enemies. This article will show you not only how to not be bothered by your enemies, but how to actually foster love for them.

Read on to learn the secret.

1. It’s a practical lesson in anger management

To be honest, your enemies are the best people to help you understand your sense of anger management. When it might be true that your enemies have a way of bringing out the worst in you as regards anger, it is also true that they can help you in your quest to have that anger managed. You can’t get truly angry at someone you love and it is only in that time when you get truly annoyed that you learn how to manage it.

Anger management is more effective when it is in practice and not in theory

Your enemies are like the therapists who you need, but actually don’t want. Inasmuch as you might want to hate them, they provide you an opportunity to control the anger impulse that you have.

2. It’s an opportunity for healthy competition

You might not know it, but your enemies make for great rivals as they help harness the competitor in you (sometimes, you might not even know or bee conversant with this competitive side until you come across an adversary). You get the right motivation to compete and this can go a long way to spur you to victory.

However, while doing so, it is also essential that you remember not to become a worse version of yourself while competing. Working against an adversary is tricky, and you need to ensure that you don’t cause harm to yourself or your morals in the process. Healthy competition is all you need to get out of this.

3. Their negative comments can help you make a breakthrough

It is true that your enemies never really have much good to say about you. However, in as much as they might be talking out of a place of hate, there might be some truth to what they’re saying.

To wit, whenever you hear something mean or nasty from an enemy, you might want to take a step back and evaluate yourself. There is a chance that what this enemy is saying is true and coming to face that fact is a major step in helping you to become a better person overall. This is another testament to the fact that enemies can be therapists in their own way.

4. Enemies can also be powerful allies

Loving your enemies can also mean making an effort to interact and make peace with them. In the end, if you are able to establish some common ground and patch things up, you’ll have succeeded in making another friend. And who doesn’t need friends?

This can also help you in working with people in the long run. You get to hone your inter-personal skills, and that can be a big plus to your ledger.

5. It gives you the ability to realize positivity

In a multitude of negativity, a speck of positivity always seems to find its way through.

Sometimes, a knowledge of the fact that you have enemies will also help you to focus on the many positives and good things that are in your life. A lot of times, we neglect what really matters in life. This can be due to being overly concerned with the enemies we have.

However, it is also possible for this acknowledgement to spur you to take a step back and appreciate the goo things (and people who surround you).

6. There might just be a misunderstanding

Sometimes, the reason why you have an enemy might be something very innocuous. You might not have known the cause of this fractured relationship and your enemy will help complete the picture.

Simply approaching them will help you to understand the reason for the fracture. This, in turn, can help you to work towards healing your relationship moving forward. Misunderstandings happen, and you need to be able to work around them.

7. You learn to appreciate love as well

A constant reminder of the fact that there are enemies will also help you not to take those who love you for granted. Love and hate are two opposing emotions and it is possible for one to momentarily overshadow the other.

However, while you’ll always have enemies, there will also always be people who love you. These people need to be appreciated for what they do for you. Never let the hate projected to you from your enemies take the place of that.

8. Do you really need the hate?

The truth is that enemies bring only toxic emotions and generate bad reactions from you. If you’re truly to live a prosperous life, you can’t really be carrying all this baggage around.

Hate is bad and you should try all you can to get rid of it. It is a well-known fact that nobody can get really far in life while carrying a lot of emotional baggage. Well, hate is the biggest form of emotional baggage there is.
