What if girls lifted girls?
Might everything be different?
This simple question has plagued me for a long, long time.
In high school, I was badly bullied by other girls. In repeat instances. I was threatened, physically harmed and slut-shamed before I'd ever even "lost" my virginity. For two years of high school, I lived in daily terror.
To this day, I honestly don't know why.
Were they jealous?
Did I appear too self-confident or aloof?*
Was I unwittingly cruel to them first?
Did I play a role in my own torture? Did they, too, play a role in their own simultaneous pain?
You can read more about that if you'd like to know the specifics HERE.
**I'm also making the original Google Doc I drafted for that feature public with this link and invite you or your readers to have a conversation with me about all of this any time with me there. **
For sure, I am the better for it.
