Are you a mean girl? Well, I’m going to convince you to stop being meanie! I know it is a great experience to feel like you are on top of the world and everybody admire you, but most people actually dislike you. Here are a few reasons why you should stop being a mean girl.
1. You are not satisfied with yourself
Most mean people are mean because they are not happy with themselves, and they think that life is unsatisfactory. Be kind to people and they will be kind to you too, and they will appreciate and love you for who you are. You will also become more self-confident and much happier.
2. No one likes mean people
Another reason to stop being a mean person is because no one really likes mean people. Even if you think you are the most likable person at school or work, you are not. Many mean girls are sure that people love them, but in reality people hate them. Be nice and it will certainly pay off!
3. Your actions can have a big effect on someone’s life
If you are constantly intentionally leaving others out of activities, spreading rumors, and breaking up friendships, you are considered a bully. And suicide due to bullying remains among the leading causes of death in children between age 12 and 14. Even if you are not 14, you are still among those who bully. Remember not everyone is good at dealing with meanness, and sometimes your actions can have a big effect on someone’s life.
4. Guys don’t like a mean girl for her personality
Most guys are attracted to a mean girl because of her look, confidence, social status, money, or anything, but they don’t like mean girl for her personality. Respectable and good men like classy and respectful women.
5. It’s difficult for a mean girl to get a job
Mean people have a hard time getting and keeping a job. All employers want positive people who are good with others, and a mean girl doesn’t fit that description. Even if you are lucky to get a job, you will not have it for long if you don’t stop being mean!
6. People will not always tolerate your meanness
If you are mean now and you are not going to stop being mean, keep in mind that it doesn’t last forever, because people around you will not always tolerate your meanness. So try to be an admirable and kind person before you lose people who really care for you. Be careful how you treat others, because one day you may need them.
7. You are setting a bad example
There are certainly people who are always watching what you say and how you say it, what you do and how you do it. When you do and say hurtful mean things, they will repeat it. The world doesn’t need more bullies.
Being a mean girl not only hurts someone’s feelings, it hurts you. So be respectful and kind to people around you. Do you think you will stop being mean any time soon? Do you know any other reasons to stop being mean? Share your thoughts, please.
