Happy Wednesday, All!
This past weekend my friend pulled out a book entitled, "Why Men Love B*thches." She had pulled it off her roomates shelf thinking it was going to be a comical romance novel. Nope, turns out it was exactly what the title said.
We read a couple pages and the ideas became challenging for me.
Why do women have to be considered b*tches to get the guy?
I am a self-proclaimed nice girl. I always have been. It's been a blessing and a curse. I love that I don't have a mean bone in my body, but I also have been walked all over because of it.
However, I believe nice girls get a bad rap (which is ronic, don't ya think?)
We are called pushovers. We are told we aren't acting like strong women. We are told we don't have a backbone. We are made fun of for NOT making fun of others.
You know what I say?
Nice girls are awesome and we do have backbones- tough ones. We are strong women. I have learned to get my point accross without being mean. It's taken me time to find that voice, but I finally have it. And I've learned I don't have to sacrifice being nice to express my point.
And I didn't have to stop being a nice girl to get the guy.
So, this is my ode to the nice girls:
Keep being nice-you'll find a guy that loves you for it.
Keep using your backbone without being mean.
Keep loving yourself for who you are.
And all the people who say you have to be a b*tch?
Smile and wave at them like the nice girl you are.
You rock on, Nice Girl.
