Listen, ladies, we’ve all been called crazy by a man for speaking our minds.
A man calls a woman crazy for three reasons: to make her doubt herself, to invalidate her, or to pass the blame to her because he doesn’t want to take responsibility.
If expressing yourself is crazy, then fuck yeah, I’m crazy as hell. So I’m claiming this title proudly! Girls, are you with me?
This is NYgal’s list for why it’s actually good to be the crazy girl.
We’re Confident in Who We Are!
Crazy bitches are confident! We know who we are inside and out. We have distinct boundaries, as well as, morals. We’re bosses in the office and vixens in the bedroom. We strut tall with our heads high and people always notice us when we enter a room.
Often times, this confidence will be mistaken for bitchiness by both men and women. But really, we’re just trying to live our best lives. So stop trying to bring us down! There is absolutely nothing wrong with knowing who you are.
We Know How to Have Fun!
As crazy girls, we know how to have fun. I’m not talking about partying and going hard on a Saturday night, although we’re damn good at that. I’m talking about enjoying life and fully embracing pleasurable experiences. We love to laugh, we love to play, and we love to socialize.
Most of the time, men will be discouraged to get with the crazy girl because she attracts a lot of attention. Men are jealous creatures but a crazy man will rise to the occasion and enjoy the competition to get her eyes looking his way. Crazy attracts crazy, so find a man who can handle the game.
We’re Open to New Things
Crazy girls have a spice for life! We love trying new things. This could be anything from a cooking class to rock-climbing, to a new position in the bedroom. Life is supposed to be fun and we want to find everything it has to offer us!
Some men might get intimidated by this! Not everyone has a natural zest, so, if he can’t keep up with you, then drop him because you’re not stopping your party for him!
We Speak Our Minds
Let’s get real, crazy girls like to speak their minds and sometimes you won’t like it. But other times, it will lead to deep and important conversations that are worth having.
In relationships, this can cause arguments, but don’t let that deter you from letting your words spill from your pretty-painted mouth. The number one rule is to always be true to your heart. If you make it through these arguments, then maybe you two are meant to be!
Crazy girls are passionate! No matter what they’re doing, the crazy girl will always give it 100%! Doing something half-assed is not in the cards for her. There is no point if there is no passion. Period.
But, what if you don’t have a passion for art, sushi-making, or horseback riding, you ask? Hell, that’s ok! As long as you put your mind and heart into your everyday activities, you can still be a crazy girl!
Crazy girls are successful because we understand how to get what we want- this comes from knowing who we are. From careers to sex, to finding a partner – we work to our strengths and stay driven until we reach our destination. All-aboard the crazy train!
Not all men can handle this kind of ambition, so stay clear of the insecure men who get-off on being the money-makers. We don’t need that negative energy slowing us down!
We Have Depth
Crazy girls have been called crazy probably hundreds of times. We’ve been through it all. We have been shamed, hated, and bullied – not just by men, but also by women who support this crazy girl stigma. But, in the end, this has only made us stronger and crazier!
You need to find a man who can handle this depth, who is curious about your thoughts, because hell, you have a lot of them! And if he can’t handle your baggage, your beautiful mind, and your passionate loving heart, then show him the door. You are too crazy and fabulous to deal with that shit.
