14 Things Only Girls Who Are Stuck in A “Girl’s World” Can Understand

14 Things Only Girls Who Are Stuck in A “Girl’s World” Can Understand

Beyond the kind of things you see in “Mean Girls,” every girl wants to feel great about being a girl. Being in the right group or being associated with the right people solidifies your position as the ideal girl. But the strain that comes with wanting to be the “it” girl is cumbersome. It’s nothing scary though. You just have to learn to deal with being stuck in that world for a while. And, as you already know, there are some things you understand that no ordinary girl would. Here are 13 things only girls who are stuck in a “girl’s world” would understand.

1. You don’t have enough time for yourself.

Your friends take a lot of your time. There is always something to gossip or talk about. It is not as if you cannot make time for something else; it’s just that you are constantly engaged by your friends whether positively or negatively.

2. You will have to make tough decisions.

Certainly you will have to make tough decisions, especially when a boyfriend comes into the picture.

3. You will have a lot of “girl evenings.”

Yes, you will have a lot of hanging out to do with your girlfriends who need you as a companion.

4. You don’t have a small group of close friends.

You will need some space. You may need a friend or two, but when you are stuck in a “girl’s world,” you have a bunch of friends. You wish you didn’t have so many, but the girl’s code is all about having enough girlfriends to have your back.

5. You will get stabbed in the back every now and then.

Well you have to face it: the more friends you have, the higher the chance that at least one of them will stab you in the back and make you look stupid.

6. You will need to attend a lot of functions.

There are always functions for you to attend: birthdays, weddings, festivals—the list is endless.

7. You have to do a lot of shopping.

Shopping means a lot in the girl’s world—if you are not well dressed or made up, you will have a lot of problems with your girlfriends. So spend that money and be great at shopping tactics!

8. You have to know what “popular” means.

You may not be good enough if you are not popular enough. You just have to set your own trends and fight for the spotlight. The goal is to have as many other girls follow or emulate your successes.

9. You will have competition.

It is not just about you and your friends. There will be others who want to take you down when they see a weakness on your part. You have to always be on top of your game.

10. You have to know how to use social media to your gains.

Well, you probably already know this, but to be in the center of attention you have to attract attention. And what better way to get the business done than by using social media.

11. You have to stick to looking good.

You can’t afford to look awful. Put on a smart face, visit the gym often, buy the most expensive beauty products, work hard, and be attractive enough to attract the attention of males and/or females.

12. You can become addicted to colors.

Is teal your favorite color this month? Pink? Cobalt blue? Make sure you are great at selecting and wearing the right colors.

13. You should always smell nice.

Living in a “girl’s world” means regular showering, teeth-brushing and whitening, and other types of hygiene maintenance.

14. You have to protect yourself.

You can’t afford to be nonchalant. Living in a “girl’s world” means you are strong enough to hold your own and capable enough to defend your own turfs. And this could mean that you become mean in the process of showing how tough you are.

10 Things Happy People Do Differently

10 Things Happy People Do Differently

Think being happy is something that happens as a result of luck, circumstance, having money, etc.? Think again.

Happiness is a mindset. And if you’re looking to improve your ability to find happiness, then check out these 10 things happy people do differently.

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. -Dalai Lama

1. Happy people find balance in their lives.

Folks who are happy have this in common: they’re content with what they have, and don’t waste a whole lot of time worrying and stressing over things they don’t. Unhappy people do the opposite: they spend too much time thinking about what they don’t have. Happy people lead balanced lives. This means they make time for all the things that are important to them, whether it’s family, friends, career, health, religion, etc.

2. Happy people abide by the golden rule.

You know that saying you heard when you were a kid, “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” Well, happy people truly embody this principle. They treat others with respect. They’re sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of other people. They’re compassionate. And they get treated this way (most of the time) in return.

3. Happy people don’t sweat the small stuff.

One of the biggest things happy people do differently compared to unhappy people is they let stuff go. Bad things happen to good people sometimes. Happy people realize this, are able to take things in stride, and move on. Unhappy people tend to dwell on minor inconveniences and issues, which can perpetuate feelings of sadness, guilt, resentment, greed, and anger.

4. Happy people take responsibility for their actions.

Happy people aren’t perfect, and they’re well aware of that. When they screw up, they admit it. They recognize their faults and work to improve on them. Unhappy people tend to blame others and always find an excuse why things aren’t going their way. Happy people, on the other hand, live by the mantra:

“There are two types of people in the world: those that do and those that make excuses why they don’t.”

5. Happy people surround themselves with other happy people.

    One defining characteristic of happy people is they tend to hang out with other happy people. Misery loves company, and unhappy people gravitate toward others who share their negative sentiments. If you’re struggling with a bout of sadness, depression, worry, or anger, spend more time with your happiest friends or family members. Chances are, you’ll find that their positive attitude rubs off on you.

    6. Happy people are honest with themselves and others.

    People who are happy often exhibit the virtues of honesty and trustworthiness. They would rather give you candid feedback, even when the truth hurts, and they expect the same in return. Happy people respect people who give them an honest opinion.

    7. Happy people show signs of happiness.

      This one may sound obvious but it’s a key differentiator between happy and unhappy people. Think about your happiest friends. Chances are, the mental image you form is of them smiling, laughing, and appearing genuinely happy. On the flip side, those who aren’t happy tend to look the part. Their posture may be slouched and you may perceive a lack of confidence.

      8. Happy people are passionate.

      Another thing happy people have in common is their ability to find their passions in life and pursue those passions to the fullest. Happy people have found what they’re looking for, and they spend their time doing what they love.

      9. Happy people see challenges as opportunities.

      Folks who are happy accept challenges and use them as opportunities to learn and grow. They turn negatives into positives and make the best out of seemingly bad situations. They don’t dwell on things that are out of their control; rather, they seek solutions and creative ways of overcoming obstacles.

      10. Happy people live in the present.

      While unhappy people tend to dwell on the past and worry about the future, happy people live in the moment. They are grateful for “the now” and focus their efforts on living life to the fullest in the present. Their philosophy is:

      There’s a reason it’s called “the present.” Because life is a gift.

      So if you’d like to bring a little more happiness into your life, think about the 10 principles above and how you can use them to make yourself better.
