“The world is divided into those who understand me and those who don’t. In the case of the latter, I simply leave them to torment themselves trying to gain my sympathy.” – Paulo Coelho
Women are generally such really nice people. In fact, we’re so nice by default, that when we break down and get mad, most people are inclined to mutter to themselves under their breath: “bitch“. This is so unfair!
Because here’s some news for you: EVERY WOMAN HAS A BITCH STREAK. Yes that’s right. Every woman has the potential to become a full on, cold-hearted, obnoxious, take no prisoners, shoot first, never ask questions, mother loving bitch – even the nicest most pleasant women you’ve met! Even if they don’t act that way most of the times, every woman becomes a bitch at least once every 28 days. In my opinion, a woman’s bitch mode is actually necessary for survival in a male dominated world.
It is a pretty potent defence mechanism – much like the deadly venom from the otherwise frail Australian brown snake. However, those who wear the bitch gene on their sleeves are just desperate for attention and should be categorically ignored. Most women are right brained and as such are more emotionally driven than men. Our hormones can seriously exacerbate that situation. When a woman becomes Ms. B*tch, shut up. You could be endangering yourself (warning to men more so). Sometimes a woman needs to vent. It doesn’t matter what she’s saying when she’s venting. That’s just the hormones talking. Just agree with her until she expends all the negative energy. It’s perfectly normal!
I know, I know, we all have complicated relationships with the word bitch, and with the idea of reclaiming it. It’s still so often used to make women feel like crap, after all. So don’t take this post to mean it is right to be using that word willy nilly, rather let’s take away that sometimes it’s ok to be a b*tch.
Be happy. x
