What makes me any more of a bitch than you are?

I don't go out of my way to be mean to people. If I don't like you, I simply will not talk to you. I won't point out your flaws. I won't call you names (unless you give me a reason to). I try not to judge anyone because I know everyone has different situations. I know everyone goes through different things. I know everyone is going through something right now and what gives me the right to add to that struggle? Why would I increase anyone's pain?
But people are mean to me on a daily basis....people I probably don't know, or at least don't talk to. People pointing out my flaws (that I'm already EXTREMELY aware of). People judging me for whatever reason. People adding to the things that I have to deal with. (And no, I'm not going to tell you my life story because I don't want your pity, that's not the point I'm trying to make). People intentionally hurting (or at least trying to hurt) me.
And I've decided 90% of these people are girls. Little girls. I don't care how old you are, if you're acting this way, you are a little kid. These people also are obviously insecure. They are obviously jealous. Probably jealous because I'm not insecure. I love me. I accept me. And that doesn't mean I don't like you too.
If you're saying I'm bitchy and "full of myself" because when people compliment me I normally respond with "I know", don't. I say "I know" because I do know. I know my hair is awesome, I know I'm pretty, I know I'm nice, I know my art is amazing, ect. And one (or a million) people telling me otherwise isn't going to change that. One person's opinion isn't going to change the way I feel about myself. To me, I'm the most important person. To you, you should be the most important person. My opinions of myself are the ONLY opinions of me that matter. So you can say whatever you want to say about me, if you're expecting me to break down you're going to be waiting a while.
So, tell me, how am I any more of a bitch than you are? Seriously, please tell me.
