"Smart girls are the overthinkers, the insecure ones, the different ones. They know what the real world is like. They analyze every little thing in life. Why? To avoid getting hurt. To find happiness. They stay up at night trying to think about every possible situation to get through all the problems. They think too much. They trust fewer people. Their insecurity proves their respect toward themselves. Of course they try to live away from a drama-filled life. Smart girls know their worth. Now those are the ones worth keeping by your side."

Don't know about you but this is really true to me. I'm not outrightly proclaiming I am smart btw but this really struck a chord with me for a while and I have revisited this quote a few times.
Because everyone, be they smart or stupid, are only human and we have feelings too. We are also granted with the right to feel insecure, to be (over?) sensitive, to be just like any other girl. Just because we are smart-er does not mean we have to be the informidable, the undefeatable, and it certainly does not mean our perception of things stem out from the desire to feed our ego. Our feelings, thoughts and fears are also real.
But smart girls are also the ones men are afraid to date.
On a side note, good bye Year 2!
