The Mean (and Fake) Girls
Ah, those High School girls. We’ve either known them or been them; the girls who jump from best friend to best friend, from one fake friendship to the next, spilling their inner-most secrets, only to dish them out on various social networks as soon as their relationship inevitably fades.
The truth is though, even as we get older, leave high school behind, go to college and move on with our lives, those type of girls will always be there.
Seriously; I am 23 years old and know girls, to this day, that cannot leave the high school drama behind when it comes to growing up, getting over the past and creating lasting bonds with people that are real, genuine and sincere. High school was 5 years ago!
When it comes to friends – and in various other aspects of my life – I believe in quality over quantity. My best girlfriends to this day are my girlfriends from when I was 14 years old. We’ve grown up together into adults who continue to treasure our friendship. The three of us have all experienced times where girls have latched onto us, gotten close, become our “friends” of sorts, then moved on when they felt the time was right.
It sucked at the time, but we don’t miss them now; we have eachother.
Being that I truly value my friends above all else, I just do not understand these conniving social climbers. These girls who love ‘em and leave ‘em on a monthly basis. How can someone be friends with someone else who said horrible things about them? How can they trust someone who slept with their then-boyfriend? How can anyone consider that a friendship?
I don’t do this; my friends are my friends. People change and move on, yes, but there’s a difference between growing apart and being fake. I almost feel bad for these girls for not understanding what true friendship – loyalty, trust, true connection – really feels like.
The truth is ladies and gents: those girls, that drama from high school, may never go away. My friends and I still see these girls when we go out and they walk by as if they are God’s gifts to creation. Unfortunately, what they don’t realize, is that we walk by already knowing they’re not. And knowing that, by next week, they probably won’t be seen together again.
