I don't think I could be paid $1Million dollars to go back to junior high or high school. Those days are filled with gossip, backstabbing, lies, fakeness and insecurity. Sounds like a hit reality show!
My oldest daughters experience is the same. Each day when she gets in the car she cries and tells me how hard it is and no one likes her. Everyday there is some sort of drama. It all revolves around people talking about each other and worrying about what's going on in each others lives and loosing focus on our own.
Girls and grown women are drawn into negative gossip and chitter chatter. I'm guilty and I really struggle with this. When we talk badly of someone we can't ever take that back. I tell my daughter don't say anything about someone unless you would say it to their face. But, do I do this too? No, I'm just as guilty as her.
I don't care if your 13 or 34 it still hurts when you hear someone has said something bad about you. The best example I can make to my 13 year old is living by example. When I want to say something negative about someone I need to stop and think before I speak. It makes life simpler but not so interesting....I think boring can be good.
