The Underlying Issue Of Most Bad Girls
Notice that I say "most," meaning not all, most notably myself. I’m the bitter girl reading these blanketed articles, angry that us females are generalized as a population, when really everyone has their own story and there is a distinct difference between those who fit the following qualifications and those who don't.
So try to remember this as I write about some road blocks woman run into throughout their lives that turn them into the bad girls they are.
Chances are, she grew up as a Jones. She was born into a family filled with genius cousins and parents who worked hard to make the boatloads of money they now have. Grades always came first, as they should, but she was held at a ridiculous standard. If she missed one homework she was grounded and if she so much as said anything but "yes, please" and "no, please," she was punished.
Now she’s being sent off to a great school and all hell breaks loose. Being suffocated and put on a pedestal is only good for an animal. Once a girl has no one to prove anything to, she goes absolutely wild. Mom and dad would die if she got a tattoo, so of course she’ll go out and get one.
They want her to be a lawyer so she will most definitely get bad grades and go down the opposite path. Maybe she’ll even really grow a pair and decide to take a year off. Eventually the “you’re our daughter and we love you anyway” speech will kick in but by then it’s too late, and she will love the new person she’s created that mommy and daddy will resent until she's dead.
We all know the reason women are crazy is because of men but the reason this girl can’t seem to settle down and is in turn labeled as a whore is because the first guy she ever fell for really screwed her up. He probably cheated on her leading her to believe that none of them can be trusted.
Being that he was probably a raging whore, she now thinks doing just the same will really “show him”, which it won’t. She will bounce around from guy to guy with not a care in the world about what anyone else is saying. She will be a lot of guy’s wildest dreams because she is the ultimate level of hard to get.
By the time she grows out of it, the issue will now be that no one wants to be with the girl covered in tattoos, who doesn’t speak to her family and slept with every guy on your college’s baseball team.
This one is kind of serious. Sometimes we like to joke around and say “she has daddy issues," and this girl actually might. Obviously she can’t be stricken with both the strict parents problem and this particular issue, so it’s really one or the other.
Her parents may have divorced and she hasn’t seen her father since but she always receives a card on her birthday and a check for the holidays. This is acting out for the attention of daddy or whoever has left her in their lives. In Gossip Girl, Serena’s dad straight up disappears so the girl goes on a rampage of doing stupid things in public just so she won't feel ignored. Although that is just a TV show, that’s exactly what is happening in this case.
Dreams are Crushed
Her childhood dream is probably to be a dancer or a musician, and then someone gives her a harsh reality check. Someone tells her that her voice sucks and she will never be a good singer. So rather than finding something she is good at, she’ll just become a bad seed and not worry about a career again.
She’ll drop out of school, take up a random job, and piss off everyone she knows in her life until she finds herself and grows out of this phase.
Closing note; If you’re reading this and hating it, it’s probably because it’s spot on about you and you really shouldn’t care. This is who you are, embrace it and love yourself.
