Mean Girls

Have you ever met a mean girl? If not come to Midland Texas and hook-up with a few 6th grade girls. Yes 12 year old girls they are beyond MEAN. Not all of them but a few. They are not the scum of the earth, but those from middle class to upper middle class families. The ones you have known since birth. Something has taken over their souls & ruined reputations. Their lies are bizarre and their purposes are evil.
This year my daughter learned a hard lesson. That a true friend is few and far between.

Even the girls that maintain their virginity are called sluts, whores and ho's. Even the girls that finished the semester with a 3.71 GPA are accussed of dealing crack. These lies hurt, but what hurts even more is the parents and children who will not own up to the rumors and take responsibility. They spin out of control ruining lives and crushing a beautiful girls spirit.

Is it jealousy? Possibly because she is naturally beautiful (yes she had alot to do with her genes). Is it because she makes good grades without cracking a book, is it because she exudes loyalty and will not cave to shallow judgements you bestow on those less fortunate?

Lies, gossip, rumors and innuendo's will one day be forgotten and the TRUTH will prevail, but to those MEAN GIRLS a friendship that once was is forever destroyed. You maliciousness will follow you and your karma will haunt you.

I feel your pain.
I, too, have witnessed the horrible suffering caused by the Mean Girl Syndrome....I'm sorry to say, that having grown up here, it has never been easy, but to watch the cruelty placed on my own flesh and blood, literally makes my skin crawl.
My daughter chose not to drink when it was offered at an early age, and she was shunned by most of the kids she had gone to school with and had considered her friends. She spent her entire sophomore year of high school pretty much home with us on Friday and Saturday nights.....But, just as a new butterfly emerges from the cocoon, our beautiful loving daughter, became the leader, rather than the follower, that she was meant to be. At this writing, she has graduated from high school with honors, has tons of great friends, was elected to school court, and above all - she's got her self-respect. She is preparing to go to college, and I will sleep at night knowing that all the meanness in the world can't stop her from being the best she can be!
Take heart.....Your young daughter will survive what seems impossible, and the best is yet to come, when (surprisingly) "what goes around, comes around".
