  • I think we're raised in a culture that pits women against eachother rather then teaches them to work together. Everything in the media we're exposed to from an early age pushes us to be the prettiest girl in the group, the smartest girl in the group, the most popular one.

    Rather then measuring ourselves against ourselves and our own achievements we are taught to measure ourselves against eachother in a very antagonistic way.

  • yeah, regardless of how we are raised there is pressure which I know makes me feel like- if she has it then I can't get it- so I'd better beat her down...

    it's a "not enough happiness to go around" mentality.

    I try to be respectful of others all the time and pride myself on my ability to see all sides of a given situation- but I am also guilty of having those feelings beneath the surface.
