12 Things A “Do-Something Bitch” Has No Time For

Ronda Rousey is awesome. The MMA champion has dominated in a typically male-dominated field, and she’s not going to apologize for it. In fact, she’s proud that her mother taught her not to be a “Do Nothing Bitch” and to get out there and make things happen. That’s a lesson we can all learn from. Take charge of being a strong, independent, grown-ass woman instead of acting like a scared little girl. Here are 12 things you have no time for when you’re a Do Something Bitch, because you’re too busy killing it in life.

  1. Gossiping about other people’s business. This isn’t the cafeteria, and you’re not in high school anymore. You’re an adult who has better things to do than worry about than someone else’s business. Gossiping is for immature girls, and you’re past that. Focus on yourself and your life.
  2. Venting about your problems via social media. In the grand scheme of things, the world doesn’t care about your bad hair day or the fact that you spilled coffee all over your pants on the way to work. You don’t need to live-tweet your every move or disclose the details of your personal relationship to everyone within your social network. Some things are better left private.
  3. Getting into arguments with people over the Internet. If you’re still getting into Facebook arguments with people, then it’s time to grow up. There is no need to get heated over a silly comment that some stranger made who lives on the other side of the world.
  4. Hating on another woman’s success. While you’re busy hating on another woman’s success, she’s out there hustling, and you should be doing the same thing instead of wasting your time being envious of her. Moreover, this is 2015, ladies. We should be supporting other successful women and encouraging them instead of trying to bring them down.
  5. Chasing guys. First off, Do Something Bitches shouldn’t even chase. Second, they shouldn’t chase boys. If you’re a grown-ass woman, you should recognize the difference between a boy and a man. And you should recognize when a man is a waste of your time or not.
  6. Getting hung up over a guy that clearly isn’t interested. Ladies, there are plenty of fish in the sea. Be confident and don’t get down on yourself if a guy isn’t interested. If the guy isn’t interested, then just move on. You should know by now that you can’t force these kinds of things. The right guy will come along.
  7. Getting too drunk to function the next day. Being hung-over multiple days a week is not cool, it’s sad. Partying hard and drinking until you pass out was a little more fun in your early twenties when you were able to recover faster and you had less responsibilities to deal with. Get your sh*t together and separate work from play.
  8. Wasting money on cheap clothes you’ll never wear again. After a while, you should probably realize that Forever 21 clothes don’t last very long. At a certain point, you want to invest in good quality clothing that doesn’t make you look like you’re still in college. 
  9. Waiting on a long-ass line just to get into a bar or club. Dressing up in heels and a tight dress to go to the club was exciting in your earlier days, but after a while, the effort is just exhausting. It’s fun to have a girl’s night out once in a while, but not when it means that a majority of the night is spent waiting in line just to get in.
  10. Living with way too many people in one apartment. Having roommates is awesome for a while.  They’re great to have for emotional support, having someone to go out with, and splitting the rent. But eventually, you’re going to have to be less dependent on your roommates and be an independent woman who can actually afford to pay rent on your own and be okay with being alone.
  11. Acting like a princess. In this life, you don’t always get what you want. You’re not entitled to anything and acting like a princess when you don’t get your way isn’t cute, it’s annoying. You have to work hard to get to where you want to be.
  12. Crying when you don’t get your own way. A girl cries when she doesn’t get her way. A woman rolls up her sleeves and goes after what she wants in full force. You’re not a kindergartner. Crying doesn’t get you the job that you want. It’s understandable to be emotional and sometimes, we just need to have a good cry, but it should no longer be a habit if you’re a grown-ass woman.
