"Sometimes being a bitch is all a woman's got to hold onto." -Stephen King, Dolores Claiborne
(If you don't know who this is, figure it out.)
Being a bitch is useful on the mountain, and when I refer to mountains I don't mean it literally. We are all on some mountain: An actual mountain or the mountain of life. Getting through life's situations by being a bitch is sometimes the best and most helpful way to do it.
In the past few years, it has been a struggle for me to "Be The Bitch." I have a big heart and care about people which gets me in trouble when they walk over me. I also have been learning to care less about what others think of me. Sensitive, yes it's true, and remembering to work that bitch just makes you grow stronger. We need more strong women in our society. Where have they all gone? Are they hiding in the mountains?
Let's begin to dissect how you can start walking on your own bitch path. These are 5 good ways you can begin:
It's Okay To Say FUCK: Fuck you, fuck off, fuckface and the list goes on and on. It's true it can be considered crass and "unbecoming of a lady" to use this magic word. It's also true it's best not to use it while in certain situations, like to your boss at work (unless you are perhaps fucking each other). Words are power. Fuck it.
Stand Up For Yourself: This is less about being a bitch and more about claiming your power, which a bitch has -- POWER. Don't let people run over you. There are so many people who would be better off if they just claimed their power. Say what you think and don't be scared. People will respect you more. They may also become scared and that will only help your bitch path.
Don't Hang Around Stupid People: Bitches are smart and they don't need stupid people bringing them down, making them stupid and doing stupid things. You know who these people are, and the worse ones are those who don't know they're stupid. It's your choice to clue them in to their stupidity, but it may just be easier to phase them out.
Put Your Sensitivity On Hold: It's good to be sensitive, but not all the time. Giving yourself some separation from sensitivity is exercising your independence. Interestingly, the noun definition is: A person who is believed to respond to occult influences. Hence, don't get influenced by anything. Once you get influenced, then you start loosing yourself and that is what sensitivity thrives on. The Weak.
Get Crazy: Do you remember that song by Seal? The lyrics are: "Oh, you're never going to survive unless you get a little crazy." I believe he was singing to all bitches. Perhaps this should be THE Bitch Anthem. It's simple, really. Being a little crazy is a good thing, just don't get TOO crazy. If you can't figure out what the difference is between getting crazy and getting too crazy, then you are a stupid person and I don't know how to help you with that. I'm not supposed to hang out with stupid people. You should probably stop reading this...oops to late.
Did I forget to include something? Too bad. Fuck you.
