That Mean Girls are insecure and they meaner they are, the more insecure they feel. The more people gossip and say mean things, the less good they feel about themselves.

I knew this, but hearing it in different ways, in the context of my life, with Mean Girls all around me sometimes... weirdo clients, bizarre midwives, neighbors who throw eggs or puncture tires... it helps to be reminded.

I feel stronger.
