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.
