    Really enjoyed this post. I’ll own up, i’m not perfect and I know I have proberly done something mentioned above more than once in my 28 years… It’s hard though, even when reading this I kept thinking what can we do to break this or not fall down the rabbit hole? Because I 100% agree it starts from such a young age…. Its hard to break down things ingrained from so young….. Great post xx

      Thank you girl! I don’t think anyone is perfect and I think most will read and secretly admit to being able to relate.
      I think being honest is the first step to breaking this. If more women came forward to either admitting this behavior, it would stop being so stigmatised. xx

    Ah love this! Girl, we have similar opinions 🙂 I’m so glad you posted this for more awareness since I’ve been wondering the same thing. I’ve had many experiences with girls and they love me at first and then there is just this dislike due to all of the envy and jealousy. Sometimes, I would rather be friends with a guy than a girl lol. It’s just so annoying and why cant girls just support each other and understand that not everyone is perfect. Women need to stop competing with each other for the stupidest things and need to encourage each other on their goals/ and being strong as a women, which is something I admire in this blogging community. Here on WP, no one is in competition with one another and am so glad that women can be genuine and kind and be good friends with other women on here. In the real world, this whole hatred needs to change.

      The online community is definitely more supportive and uplifting. I think because friends do not always have common ground. On here, everyone loves blogging and everyone can connect on the same thing.
      I think girls grow up not being told or shown how to love themselves. And so they gain skills in learning how to compete. I do think women are analysed more and pitted together.

I would love to read your thoughts!
