Girls, girls, girls. Some hate us, others love us. Regardless of your opinion, you can not live without us. We range from different types, sizes and personalities. Boys think we’re complicated, misunderstood and moody. Well, the truth is, they’re not wrong. However, we are also much more. Here are the basics of what you need to know about girls.UnmutePlayCurrent Time 3:16Loaded: 41.28%Duration 10:25Fullscreen
1. We overthink.
We’ve all been there before. You’re sitting up in your bed at 4 a.m. trying to figure out what he meant when he said he’ll text you later. As in tomorrow, next week, in a year? Or, did he say that I should text him later?
2. We are moody.
Yes, we do realize we can be rude from time to time. We know that we can go from zero to 100 real freaking quick. We have these things called hormones that we can’t really can’t control. Sorry. However, if we ever seem extra cranky chances are we just need food or a nap then we will be fine.
3. We’re confident, not cocky.
When you see multiple selfies all over your timeline you can’t help but think we are all full of ourselves. I guess, in a way, you’re not wrong. We are not necessarily full of ourselves, but we love for ourselves. We don’t think we’re better than anyone; we simply just feel good about ourselves.
4. We don’t dress to impress you; we do it for ourselves.
“You’re beautiful without makeup.” You’re right, we are; however, we rarely spend so much time doing our makeup because we feel like we have to in order to feel pretty. We do it because we enjoy the process. It’s like an art form. The makeup is the paint and our faces are our blank canvases. We dress up not to impress a boy, but because that is what we feel confident wearing.
5. We can be mean.
No one really knows why girls are so mean, especially to each other. No one enjoys being the one getting talked about, but we all find ourselves doing it from time to time. On the behalf of girls, I apologize. We’re working on it.
6. We are smart.
Look around, people, the world is changing. Women are stepping up and declaring that we can, in fact, accomplish whatever goal we set our minds to. We always have been smart and have ruled the world, but now we’re just proving it to our judgmental society.
7. We can make it on our own.
Contrary to popular belief, we do not need a man to constantly buy us everything. We can pay our bills, our food and treat ourselves when we feel it’s necessary. Sure, we love when a guy offers to buy us food, but it isn’t necessary. We aren’t all the gold diggers Kanye warned you about.
8. We are empowering.
If we see a girl walking down the street, we’re not afraid to stop her, and say, “I love your outfit. Work it, girl!” We stand up against body shaming, ignorant comments on the Internet and everything else in between. Like Beyoncé said herself, “I’m reppin’ for the girls who taking over the world.” At the end of the day, girls are pretty amazing, and everyone should know it.
