Good girls are always taught to be on point and polite everytime. They are taught to swallow their pride and sugarcoat their anger. They need to bend over backwards while others trespass their boundaries and act compliment. From a very young age, we are taught to keep our mouths shut and our legs closed. To apologize profusely for simply existing. It’s exhausting. I just want to tell everyone to shut the hell up most of the time. We always seem to have to wait our turn or need a valid reason to even speak what’s on our minds in the first place. Am I a feminist? No. However, I was labeled “the good girl”, “the geeky girl”, the weird girl”, and even “the ugly girl”.
I rather be the bad girl. The one with dreams and desires but can still what what I set my mind to. Being able to accept that I am a nerd and like the deviate from society and from the norm. I’m acquainted with my “dark side”, my more expressive side. This doesn’t mean I am a cruel person. It just means I am embracing all the things society tells me I am not “allowed” to do. This doesn’t mean you cannot be kind. There should be more genuine kindness in the world. I didn’t stop being kind. I stopped letting people and society think I had to be “like” them.
