8 Things You Shouldn’t Do When You Hate Another Girl

Back in high school, I had a few female enemies who I seriously disliked. My mom tells me to never use the word “hate” about another person, but there was one girl who I particularly could not stand. The girl, Sam, was rude, very conceited, patronizing, and basically thought she was better than everyone else. To make matters worse, she had a not-so-secret crush on my boyfriend, and hated me simply because I was dating him. She had a lot of people fooled, but I knew what she was really like.

One year, she had a huge party and invited almost our entire class… except for one person. Yup, you guessed it – me. When my loyal best friend asked if I could come along, Sam gave her a flat-out no as an answer. One time, she IMed me on AIM just to tell me that no one in our high school liked me (when I asked who did like me, she said “the shorter answer would be, who does?”), for no reason whatsoever. Another time, she spent over a year anonymously commenting on my online Deadjournal, leaving nasty comments that made fun of everything about me (I later found out it was her all along). There are many more things that Sam said and did to get under my skin and leave me feeling miserable, but I’m not in the mood to rehash them.

I wasn’t only hurt and furious – I was also really confused. I had been friends with this girl when we went to a Catholic middle school together, up until she left for public school. When I switched to my public high school, I was comforted by the idea that I would at least know and be friends with Sam, but I guess I shouldn’t have been. Sam had transformed into an angry, bitter bully, who disliked me for no real reason at all. She made it her personal mission to make me feel like crap in high school, despite the fact that I had never done one thing to her.

I don’t know what Sam is like now, and I really don’t care to find out. I saw her once during college, and when she tried to act nice to me, like nothing had ever happened, I blew her off completely. I have no room for people like her in my life, and you shouldn’t either.

Every single day, girls are treated like this by other girls. Who knows the reasoning behind the bullying? It could be jealousy, intimidation, fear, insecurity, or a mixture of all of that. What I do know is that dealing with a girl you dislike who doesn’t like you either is really, really hard. You don’t know whether to lash out, ignore her and wait for it stop, or try to get revenge. If you’re in a similar situation, check out these 8 things you shouldn’t do when you hate another girl. Avoiding this stuff will ensure you end up on top, getting the best revenge of all.
