An open letter to all the “mediocre” women out there
Shout out to the women who can’t remember when was the last time they read something different than the cereal box title.
The ones who spend half an hour scrolling through their Facebook feed in the morning and always get grumpy when they’re late for work because of it.
This is for the girls who were never the popular ones, but they didn’t give a damn about it.
The ones who were never a part of a school club or a sports team just because they didn’t feel the need to fit in. For all the ladies who never really cared about good grades and excellent personal resumes. The ones who have no idea what the latest trends are and are perfectly fine with that.
Holler at the women who can’t recall the last time they used their oven instead of ordering food online. The ones who have memorized all the pizza delivery guy’s faces in their neighborhood and call them by their first names. The ladies who prefer to stay in on a Saturday night and binge “Friends” for the fourteenth time this year, instead of going out with their real friends.
Shout out to all the women who never wanted to meet Prince Charming.
The ones who would be happy to be with someone as lazy and messy as them. Someone who would be the perfect company for a night in playing old board games and munching on popcorn. Those who enjoy watching reality shows and emotionally involve themselves in the senseless TV drama.
Give it up for the women who can’t wait for the workweek to be over, so they don’t have to pretend they like their coworkers anymore. The ones who don’t even bother to make small talks with others because they simply don’t care.
To the lazy heads, who start dreaming about going to bed, the minute they wake up in the morning.
This here is for the girls who follow tons of makeup vloggers, while they own only one mascara from 2008 and a glossy lip balm that their mother gave them for the cold winter times. The ones who shout in their heads “Ya basic!” while scrolling through famous actresses’ IG profiles.
To the women who don’t see the point in making their bed in the morning because anyway they’re gonna go back to bed in several hours.
The ones who think instant noodles are no different than fresh Italian pasta at a fancy restaurant. And drink their wine straight from the bottle, so they don’t have to add an extra glass to the pile of dishes waiting to be washed. If that’s not relatable, I don’t know what is.
You’re a mediocre woman, so what?
Not all of us should be leaders, role models, or athletes. Not everyone needs the approval of others. No one says we should all aim high and be ambitious. Some of us just don’t care about that stuff.
These women simply want to live their lives without the pressure of keeping score or meeting someone’s expectations. And that’s completely fine! If you’re one of them, you are definitely not alone.
Hey, you average lazy girl,
Keep on doing what you’re doing. Don’t let anyone ruin the mini chaotic harmony you turned your life into. Being mediocre is not a bad thing. Just an average thing. And that’s okay.
