wow, this really resonated with me. what a perfect piece of writing. more, please!! -mm

This hit home for me too...so hard to watch your five year old standing alone looking unsure. I try to remind myself that this is part of life, and often we can't negotiate these situations for them (even if we can help.) Sigh...

Awwwwwwwww what a great post. I always had turbulent relationships with most women. I feel for her. (except you know a certain type) LOL

I so know what you are talking about. So very well said.

God, it's hard being a girl, isn't it? I have two daughters now and just dread watching them navigate these friendship waters.

I had such a hard time socially as a child - always unsure of myself, so this really resonated with me. I remember being really miserable around aged 7 and again around 11 but came through it and surprisingly am now very close to both the girls who 'made' me so insecure in those phases. Given I would not be who I am without having experienced that, it's hard to say I regret it, but yes, I will want to kill anyone who makes my daughter feel that way.
