It turns out there is pride in becoming a better person, and really, there's no blame in a chica being proud of the better person she's growing it to. It becomes a problem, however, when that little chica mistakes her bettering as becoming better than other people on their very own journeys.
I'm actually quite embarrassed by the whole thing. But. I've also learned that if I don't deal with things immediately, they become, well, a bit of a pickle.
What's a girl to do in such a predicament?
I have a suspicion that the answer is simply to turn my focus onto those around me.
