Ladies, Your 'Psycho Girl' Aesthetic Is The MOST Cringe-Worthy Trend Yet

Ladies, Your 'Psycho Girl' Aesthetic Is The MOST Cringe-Worthy Trend Yet

Being a spoiled princess is a little embarrassing for girls over the age of 9.

Ladies, Your 'Psycho Girl' Aesthetic Is The MOST Cringe-Worthy Trend Yet

Everybody went to school with a girl, or maybe several girls, who proudly claim to be a crazy girlfriend on social media. Being bratty has become a really popular but extremely cringe-worthy aesthetic. We are normalizing irrational behaviors and romanticizing mental illness simultaneously.

The idea that it's cute for girls to be emotionally abusive to their significant other and mean to other girls is so sad.

Many girls have shared posts bragging about throwing a fit until they're fed like a child.

Nobody benefits from this behavior. Being the "crazy girl" will only complicate relationships and attract drama. Eliminating drama is a part of growing up, and in the real world, people won't accept the "crazy." For the sake of relationships and friendships, it's best to drop the "cute but psycho" aesthetic.

Instead, be rational and respect other people. As a person with an adult life, it is toxic to get wrapped up in another person's life. Before making a negative comment, it is important to internally reflect on whether what is about to be said is useful, positive or purposeful.

Creeping on an ex's new girlfriend is a waste of energy that could be used in a more positive and useful way.

Acting out of spite for attention is senseless. People generally like positive people, so negative energy won't attract people or earn respect. Life isn't like the movie "Mean Girls." It is a lot easier to be kind to people. Why not use platforms to spread positivity or inspire others instead of using it to spread negativity and tear others down?

Let's stop using social media to normalize problematic behavior.

Not only does the "crazy girl" stereotype make women seem emotionally unstable, but it also causes men to write off emotions as acting crazy.

There is a lot more to life than investing a lot of energy into being "that girl." It feels much better being that girl who doesn't demand a passcode, get angry about his female friends or get an attitude with him over food. That is the girl he will have peace with rather than having the feeling of walking on eggshells.

Before sharing that post about psycho girlfriends with the upside-down smile emoji, think about the toxic behavior that promotes. I know if a man were to tell me he is a little bit crazy thinking that it was a cute character trait, I would lace up my running shoes as many women would.

It is not any more acceptable for a woman to behave this way than it would be for a man.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
