I’ll admit it. I, too, was once in denial. I remember witnessing a group of females create a fake Instagram account just to see if this random boy was cheating on his girlfriend and at that moment I refused to admit I was the same species as them. I would never be that girl who contacts her boyfriend’s high school girlfriend just to make sure there was nothing still between them. I would never be that girl who analyzed every text she got from a boy with eight different people. I would never be that girl who would burn her ex-boyfriend’s clothes. Hell no, that wasn’t me. I wasn’t crazy.
That was until one night I finally admitted to myself that I had a huge crush on this guy I was pretending not to like so that he would think I was chill and like that about me and in turn get a crush on me himself, that I determined, I was, in fact, crazy. I was putting so much effort into not being the crazy girl, that I became one. From that moment on I came to the conclusion that, in one way or another, every single girl is crazy, whether she admits it or not.
I’m sure there are some of you out there who are still doubtful. Sure, you’ve done some borderline deranged things, but you wouldn’t go as far as to call yourself “crazy.” It seems like such a bad word. You’d rather be called stuck-up, selfish, boring, dumb, dare I say… fat, than be called crazy. But the reality is, you’ve done something crazy in your life before, I know it. It might have been something as little as stalking your crush’s mom on Facebook or something as big as spilling a drink all over that girl who looked at your man for too long. Being a girl means having natural-born crazy tendencies. It’s time we all face the facts.
By this point I hope you’re finally realizing the truth. As with most things, the final step in overcoming your fear of being a crazy girl is acceptance. Once you’ve realized there’s nothing you can do about it, you’ve got to embrace it. Crazy girl powers are deeply bestowed in your brain and there’s no “un-learning” them now. Celebrate the fact that you can determine if two people are hooking up solely from a picture! Embrace that you know if a guy would be good in bed just from the way he talks! Cherish your ability to know what a guy is thinking before even he does! Your craziness is a gift to you and all those around you.
I think if we all just come together and admit that we’re a bunch of crazy bitches, then men will have nothing to use against us. It will no longer be a goal for men to avoid the insane girls, but rather to encourage our behavior. The girl who sends the most screenshots to the group text will be honored for her duties. The girl who admits she only slept with that guy to get back at her ex will be dignified with pride. Now that sounds like a world I’d be proud to live in..
