Bullying in Egyptian Youth and the Girl Code

Published

on

We have all been victims of bullying in our lives, but at what extent will it affect our society? Egyptian youth are rapidly emerging and off to a bright future, but is it really bright when you are crippled and demoralized from one another? Manners are essential and influential in our lives, talking graciously, smiling to another, and embracing positivity is part of who we are as humans. A complex obstacle that faces our generation daily is that we hinder each other with words, actions, and coarseness. The unpolished generation is daily becoming, more vulgar, as they find each other foolish and insane for the most unreasonable ways. Common Communication with one another is found to be ignorant and arrogant. Girls between ages 14 to 30, in educational institutions, are extremely abusive to each other, and scandalizers are extremely common. The circulation of rumors, and barbaric actions to one another are also extremely common. Usually, reffering to the girl code, girls are supposed to support each other, and not backstab one another. A person who does not support one another, or causes botherations to another, is considered harmful to society. Another perplexing issue facing society is emotional manipulation and group circulation against one person. Emotions are reactions over anything or occurrences that happen. This dark circle of manipulation and mind games can drive people to collapse. Emotionally manipulating a person, or grouping against a person, is not a trait to be celebrated but a trait that is found to be pathetic. Only a person who is pessimistic and miserable will emotionally manipulate a person. In addition, they tend to degrade from one another, quarrel, and give off cold behavior. The creation of scenes, quarrelling, and humiliating each other publicly is a despairing issue that people face. Quarrelling, shouting, swearing, and humiliating between people will be a mortifying issue for our society in the future. How can we expect people to live with such grief and anger? When people respond to an individual’s natural behavior with a rude manner, the individual will feel negative emotions. Behavior differs from one person to another as a result of upbringing. when a person talks, acts, or tries to approach you with physical violence, then the answer is a big NO. Even if you’re at the street or anywhere in the world physical violence is not permitted. Once again, even if you’re approaching someone, physical violence is not permitted by any means. An obstacle that is also faced in our society is that people enforce their opinions, rules, or orders on each other. As fellow equals, I respect you, but I don’t need to listen to you or do what you want. I do belong to myself, and so do you. In an age of innovation and impowered women changing the world, we still have the urge to break each other down. With ladies like Angela Davis, Malala, Madonna, Annie Easly, Kamala Harris, Halimah Yacob, and Mary Barra, it is clear that the world is filled with smart, outstanding women. Therefore, women shouldn’t breakdown each other. Instead, they should support and empower one another, in order to shine the light on more women of glory. Spread love and positivity to your sister rather than your inner hate. Spread love to receive love.
