How to Deal with Real Life Mean Girls

Oh yes, real life mean girls do exist and they can be found anywhere. In fact, I think that we’ll all have to deal with mean girls at least once in our lifetimes. However, high school and college seem to be more dominated by the phenomenon than anywhere else. I, myself, have encountered many mean girls throughout my school years. In light of this, I have a few comforting words to keep in mind when one of them strikes and you’re standing face-to-face with a mean girl yourself.

So what if they don't like you?

We’re all human beings at the end of the day. Sadly, that also means that not everyone will get along. As long as you love yourself and you are surrounded by people who love you, it really doesn’t matter what the mean girls think of you. Know that their perception of you does not define you. If they don’t like you, that’s on them. At the end of the day, we’re all different and have different taste in music, fashion, as well as having different perceptions of what's “normal.” For example, some people like to wear a chic minimal coat while others prefer to rock a loud metallic leather jacket. Just because you prefer one style of a jacket over another, doesn’t mean that the other style isn’t right for somebody else. This is basically the same when it comes to people, so think of yourself as a leather jacket or a chic coat.

Know when to take action

Tolerance and positive thoughts will only get you so far when you’re dealing with cattiness. There is a difference between mean girls and bullies. If you or a fellow student are being bullied then say something. Talk to someone about it; a parent, a university professor, or a guidance counselor. There's no shame in speaking up.

Don’t let them get to you

Lastly, and most importantly, don’t let them get to you. Avoid the drama if you can and remember that life goes on. Eventually, you’ll be done with school or move on from whatever you’re doing right now and you won’t have to deal with the mean girls anymore.
