I’ve told my girls on a number of occasions “Don’t be a victim!” I really mean that in every sense of the word. Obviously stay out of danger, but also, don’t buy into the mental and emotional victimhood club so many people have decided to join these days. It grates on the nerves and gets you nowhere. If you run into an obstacle, overcome it, get around it, or smash through it.
In case you missed the news, there’s a bunch of stupid women having a pout-out (thanks, Laura Ingraham, for the term that explains it perfectly!) and crying about how they’re being hurt by this world. GET OVER IT and GET OVER YOURSELVES. True women don’t whine, and they especially don’t whine incessantly like you! True women have a valor you have yet to remotely grasp. They don’t seek glory for themselves, they’re sacrificial, they’re strong, they surmount impossible obstacles, and they don’t whine about being treated unfairly. They look like this:
The problem with a more-than-tolerable amount of women is that they are in it for themselves and they blindly follow women who are the antithesis of the above women. They choose to follow divas who haven’t worked for much of their entire lives and who are now trying to revive their waning “careers” by playing the victim activist role. Do the women who follow these types think they’ll achieve the same decadent lifestyle if they just emulate them or what? Sadly, they’re going to end up leading the same, sad, pathetic, meaningless lives these idiots lead, just with a whole lot less money because they’re soooooooo stupid. Ladies, please note that the Madonnas, Ashleys, and Mileys had success before they embraced vulgarity. (Well, maybe not Madonna.) So, you have a few women who waited until they made money before coming out as idiots and another who peddled flesh to get hers. Yeah, these are your role models and they’re not going to pay your rent or buy your food when you’ve followed their actions and lost your jobs by making yourselves obnoxious beyond belief! Erma Bombeck nailed it with this quote: “Don’t confuse fame with success. Madonna is one; Helen Keller is the other.” Why is this so painfully obvious to sane women?
So, ladies, let me explain this to you one more time. Becoming a victim doesn’t help women achieve greatness. Whining doesn’t help women achieve greatness. Taking the day off to throw a temper tantrum doesn’t help women achieve greatness. Your grand plan just makes you annoying. Leaving jobs, responsibilities, etc., undone to rant only shows us who the real women are. Real women show up even when it’s hard and they do their jobs. They’ll achieve greatness because greatness is not their goal. Nine times out of ten, they do it for others, not themselves. #weshowup #notmyprotest
