Ask Ashlee – Women belittling women is not the answer

Dear Ask Ashlee,

I am a college student that’s been experiencing some pretty heavy anxiety thinking about going back and dealing with my roommates. How I became the unlucky soul that got matched up with three of the meanest girls I have ever met, I will never know, but nonetheless it happened. I was just wondering; how do you cope or deal with a group of women who belittle you and make you feel like absolute crap?

Dear College Girl,

So, here’s the thing, honey it is 2023 and we are not starting the year this way. Take back your power. The only reason these women make you feel like crap is because you actually believe what it is they are saying about you. When you take back your power and stop believing them, they lose their power over you. You have to realize that whatever they say about you isn’t true, and you don’t have to own what they say as your truth. What IS true, is that people who usually go out of their way to make someone else feel bad about themselves, is a sign that they are dealing with their own form of self-hate. They have to make you feel worse, so they can feel better. That feeling is theirs to deal with, not you. Release yourself from that mess and take back your power. I hope this helps!

Love & Light,

Ashlee
