1) Don’t depend on anyone for happiness
We shouldn’t be depending on anyone for our own happiness. Once we start relying on our friends, significant others and even family for happiness we are easily disappointed because no one knows what makes the heart smile more than the keeper of that heart. Happiness is a state of being that only YOU can create.
2) Do Anything you want
Every decade of your life is a learning experience. I feel like the 20’s decade is to truly try and figure out who you are. This is the time where you should experience life to the fullest. Make a list of everything that you would like to achieve before you die; they can be quite small things, things out of your comfort zone or huge things like traveling the world. Whatever you would like to achieve in this life time DO IT! What’s the worst that can happen?
3) Make Mistakes
Too often we are criticized for the mistakes we make, especially as women. With each mistake comes a learning lesson. How do we grow as individuals if we don’t make mistakes?
This is the time when you should see the world and the beauty of it. Each new surrounding is coupled with a new experience. There is something beautiful about all corners of the world, each city/country represents something different, which in returns enriches us with knowledge we once never possessed.
5) Don’t apologize when you don’t need to
I feel like as women we apologize too much, even when it isn’t necessary. We have a tendency to take ownership and responsibility of certain things just so we don’t break certain relationships in our lives.
6) Be Confident In Who You Are and What You Believe In
There is nothing more beautiful than a confident woman and the way she carries herself in every aspect of her life. Your 20’s shouldn’t be about peer pressure and fitting in, that’s what junior high and high school were about. Do what you believe in! For example, if you come from a certain religious background don’t be embarrassed to represent it. Peer pressure only exists if you ALLOW peer pressure to exist. Just do you!
7) Allow yourself to be Vulnerable at times
The strongest of women are the ones who show their vulnerability at times. We are not perfect and holding back your emotions will not get you closer to perfection. Show your emotions. Just because you feel defeated at times doesn’t mean you’re not a strong, beautiful, and intelligent woman.
