Don’t Ass…u…me those smarts!

Years ago before I stopped ultimately being friends with my now ex-friends. We had gotten into a argument that ultimately, for me, ended the friendship anyway. I just didn’t know how to let go. When you know people for more than half of your life, it’s kind of hard to just go “Bye, bye”.

My Regina George was an A+++ student who was so smart, she was a teachers pets, because she was a A+++ student. So the irony was of course, when I saw her get into relationship and after relationship, no matter how abusive, or how bad the guy was. It put me off wanting a relationship, because I figured if someone as smart as her could get into such horrible relationships. What chance was there for me?

So when she said those immortal words” I only told you all that stuff, because when I’m single, I’m miserable when you guys are all in relationships and happy. I’m only happy when you are miserable in your relationships.”

I started to realise that I may never be an A+++ student, but I always be A+++ when it comes to my heart, and my personal safety, and my self esteem.

It’s also a good reason to never judge yourself, with someone else’s place in life. We are not all on the same journey. Neither are we all the same. So we are not going to have the same “smarts” about life either. That’s alright. I don’t think my Regina George is a bad person because she has low self-esteem. I think her narcissism is what makes her a bad person.

Credit where Credit is due…

When I was in High School, I used to C+…B’s if I was lucky. It wasn’t until after high school that I discovered that I had dyslexia. Whereas my ex best friend used to get A+++. I always felt dumb.

Now I have realised that there are different kinds of “smart”. One thing about my ex friend, none of them want kids, they just want to be married. Which is fine and I have no problem with that. It’s a long life though and if you can’t grow ambition beyond that. I’ve noticed that people tend to get stuck. All three of them, no career ambition, not even any travel ambition…They just want to get married. Other people I know who don’t want children, have other things they want too. Ambitions and goals that take them every where! Which is why I started to realise that they’ve got three of the lowest self-esteems I’ve ever seen. Also why they have SO much time for gossiping. And it will never change. It was always funny to me how they’d brag about being better than people who have children, because they have all this money to do with things with…Only thing was…They don’t DO the things they brag they can do,lol

So even though not being friends with them anymore, I feel smarter than them. I started to realise that smarts aren’t always about getting A+++ at school.

Then Donald Trump came along, and now I genuinely believe that I could run a country.

So I do have to give credit, these people have all made me feel smart again.
