Once you're pegged as the "good girl" it's a title that takes years of mishaps to erase. Because once you've been dubbed a good girl, it becomes a major, if not the only, part of your image.
Let me get something straight: I have no problem being the good girl. I've always been the sweet, sometimes quiet, girl next door. I'm not exactly a heart breaker, I don't start drama just for the sake of starting it, and I never get into trouble. I think that being good is a good thing, but I'm sick of it defining me. I'm irritated that even at the thought of me doing something slightly interesting means an eye roll and a guffaw. I could be bad if I wanted to...right?
Alright, probably not. I'm not about to steal your boyfriend or key an ex's car. I'm not about to do something wild. But I'd like people to think that I do have a backbone. Just because I'm nice doesn't mean I don't have guts!
There are so many misconceptions when it comes to "good girls." Much like the good boys, good girls are the ones you eventually settle down with, but they are never the ones you want right now. They're the ones you are okay with bringing home to meet your parents, but not exactly the one you show off to the other guys. And I think that's terrible.
