Five Things That Girls Should Never, Ever Do (Even If Your Life's At Stake)

STATUTORY WARNING: I KNOW I AM NO EXPERT IN PSYCHOLOGY OR THE FACT THAT I AM NOT A DICTATOR WHOSE RULES PEOPLE HAVE NO CHOICE BUT TO FOLLOW. 

BUT AS I AM A HUMAN BEING WITH COMMON SENSE, I THOUGHT I'D BETTER WRITE THIS POST, SO THAT THE INDIVIDUALS OF MY FELLOW GENDER DO NOT DO SUCH DUMB THINGS. 

Well then, that's settled.

Hello, dear reader! It's been quite some time, eh?

But now, I am back with my neurotic rambling!

It has come to my attention, that a lot of girls have a tendency to behave a bit...

How do we put this gently?

Stupid.

Now, don't get me wrong. Don't you go ahead and accuse me, "Oh Archie, how dare you! It's so anti-feministic of you to criticize girls! Girls are not stupid, okay?"

To which, I will reply: Dear reader, I am not bashing girls or suddenly transforming into a misogynist. All I'm trying to do is a post to warn my fellow gender's beings to NOT TO DO THE FOLLOWING THINGS. 

So, without further ado, allow me to enlist the five utterly important things that girls must never, ever do, even if someone's pressing a gun against their foreheads.

1. DUMB THEMSELVES DOWN FOR A GUY (OR ANYBODY, FOR THAT MATTER)

This is the most stupidest that I have ever seen. 

Most girls, in a quest to attract a boyfriend, often dumb themselves down just so that the guy's huge ego inflates and he feels important (not to mention intelligent).

Now tell me, what guy would like to be around a girl who shows that she has the IQ of a freaking sloth? 

Yep, a guy who has the ego as fragile as glass. 

Most guys, trust me, are often disgusted by the dumbness that some girls portray. The ones who aren't disgusted are the ones who are crying for attention and need someone to pamper their narrow mindset.

So girls, never ever EVER DUMB YOURSELF DOWN FOR ANYBODY. Because not only are you disrespecting your own abilities, you're also downgrading yourself. In today's world, you simply cannot degrade yourself, especially because there is so much negativity as it is.

2. DO THINGS FOR THE SAKE OF IT

It's often deemed as cool to do things which the rest of our peers do. You know, it's really exciting to ape the way our peers dress, talk and associate themselves with others. It makes us feel belonged and feel... cool. 

So that's why, a lot of girls end up aping their peers, wear skimpy clothes, get boyfriends, do tamer Fifty-Shades-Of-Grey stuff with the said boyfriends and all. 

(Just because I'm 18 years old doesn't mean that I should mention the dirty three-letter-word because what if you, dear reader, are underage? I don't want to negatively impact your brains, okay!) 

But just don't go ahead and jump off the top of a skyscraper just because your peers are doing it. That's plain dumb. That's plain, plain dumb. 

3. SURROUND THEMSELVES WITH PEOPLE WHO DON'T RESPECT THEM

This is something everybody - regardless of your gender - must not do. 

Never, ever, ever surround yourself with people who disrespect you. Never, ever, ever surround yourself with people who make you feel less about yourself. Never, ever, ever surround yourself with people who degrade your self worth. 

I have seen so many classmates of mine clinging to people who often bitch about them. I have seen so many friends of mine having boyfriends who treat them (the girls) as if they are worthless. I have seen all these friends and classmates showing a fake facade of happiness and I have seen them crumble from inside. 

This year, the first lesson I've learnt is to never surround myself with people who don't respect me as an individual. 

This might sound a bit personal, but I thought I'd talk about it because this incidence has had a very grave impact upon me, although everyone says it is really trivial. 

Okay, so I had a major fight with one of my newly-made friends this January, wherein she accused me of being a horrible person and as a person who was trying to sabotage her reputation. I tried asking her what really was wrong by texting long messages to which she didn't reply. 

All this - and talking to my close friends about it - made me realize one thing: this person wasn't worth the friendship if she's not even taking the initiative to sort things out like any mature person too. 

Another thing I realized was the fact that I was losing my self-respect by texting her and demanding what's wrong. Why should I be the only one to pick up the pieces and sort the mess? Why shouldn't the other person take the initiative too?

Moreover, why should that other person accuse me of being a horrible person for the wrong reasons and NOT EVEN HEAR MY SIDE OF THE STORY ABOUT IT? 

This incident made me realize that my self-respect is a lot more important than salvaging a friendship with someone who doesn't respect me as an individual to be heard out and who fails to understand me as a person. 

I am not even sorry about the fact that I wrote about this thing on my blog. I'm not trying to sound like an immature individual crying for sympathy and I'm not trying to sabotage my dear old ex-friend's reputation. What I'm trying to express is the fact that I learnt something really important from this incident, something which most people fail to understand throughout their lives. 

4. DEGRADE SOMEONE JUST BECAUSE THEY ARE DIFFERENT

Individuality is a trait often scorned upon. 

People want each other to function in the norms and diktats created aeons ago. Anybody who steps out of the line is deemed as an outcast who doesn't deserve to be within your presence. 

I have seen countless girls scorning others just because they aren't as hip as them. They make fun of others and call them 'dumb', 'ugly', 'slutty', 'nerdy' and whatnot! 

Now tell me, why are we girls spreading so much negativity? Why are we hurting the ones who are different from us by saying such horrible words? Why are we targeting them just because they dress differently, talk differently from us and think differently? 

Why don't we all spread positivity, spread #GirlLove like iiSuperwomanii said? 

5. STOP DOING THINGS  THAT MAKE THEM FEEL HAPPY 

I know I said this before, and I'm saying this now. 

Never stop doing things that make you feel genuinely happy.

It could be anything - dressing up the way you want, walking the way you want and taking up literature/music that you like. 

Never stop doing that. 

Because you know what? Those are the things that you enjoy doing. Those are the things that make you feel the best about yourself. Those are the things that bring out the best in you. 

(Okay, if killing people makes you happy. Then please STOP DOING THAT BECAUSE IT'S FREAKING TWISTED AND IT IS HORRIBLE AND YOU DESERVE TO BE LOCKED IN THE RESTRICTED SECTION OF A MENTAL WARD) 

****

With this, I'm done with yet another post of 2016. 

I know I've walked around in circles and stressed on the same point. But I felt it was needed because you know what, after seeing the girls around me behave so idiotically, I realized that this was needed. 

I hope your 2016 is going smoothly. 

Stay awesome as ever,

Much love,

Archie <3

  1. I think everything here just goes for all people in general. Numbers 3 and 4 really hit home because with the whole idea of reputations and where you stand in particular areas of society being so important to so many people, sometimes we're all just mean or disrespectful, and although it's hard to let go of your supposed image or the idea of it, we need to start realising that it's actually not that important.

    1. Well, I saw a lot of girls doing these things more than boys. I tell you, M, I've actually seen some of my girl friends and acquaintances do these things. Heck, I've almost done one of these things too.
      Stay awesome as ever,

  2. Hi Archie,
    Yet again, another super blog that I enjoyed reading. One aspect that I like about your blogs is that it has an undertone of individualism. You preach it in your own way, through your own experiences and musings,which I find interesting. Naturally, you love Fountainhead.
    If I had to sum the five points you have elucidated into one, I would say that you are advising "girls" to stay true to their own self. (One thing which they should always do, eh?).
    However, I agree with M's point that these things apply for humans in general. These mistakes are not particular to girls only. I am simply assuming that you may have seen it more in girls, or that you lack the perspective to map the general idea that you have laid out to concrete example for boys.

    Loved reading it, and enjoyed clumsily nodding my head while associating all the points with instances in my life.

    Godspeed

    1. Ah! Thank you for your views, HK! :D
      Like I told M, I saw a lot of these things being done mostly by girls. The guys I've been around are actually individuals who don't do these things because I guess they are pretty content in their own skins.
      Stay awesome as ever,
      Much love,
