I love this video by Jenna Marbles about why girls hate each other. Granted she curses like crazy, she really has a great message here. Which is basically that girls hate each other because we’re raised to compete and compare ourselves with one another. As women this eventually crosses from sports and test taking to looks and status (social/financial etc).
In her own goofy way Jenna goes on about how to break the cursed cycle of mean girls, which is to accept that there will always be prettier, wealthier, more popular people in this world and that once it’s been accepted…FREEDOM.
“You don’t have to be better, you just have to be you!” she says. Something every girl kind of KNOWS but for whatever reason just can’t always LIVE.
It’s amazing how even as grown women we find ourselves comparing and hating other women who seem to have it all. Women with the perfect kids, perfect hair, nice cars, happy marriages, successful blog…whatever it is….it’s still in us. Even though we know better.
What do you think? Is it as simple as Jenna makes it?:
