We bring you the story of nine women who wish they could go back in time to tell these things to their young self. They have all walked many years in the path of life. They have seen storms and sustained it. These are some of the lessons which will be fruitful for you too.
Stop living life to please your friends
This is a journey you have to walk alone and the important part is making your individual identity. Do not allow anyone to take advantage of you. Your friends will eventually go away or be there, but at the end of the day someone who will always be by your side is yourself.
Mother knows the best
You always thought that your mother is wrong in her way of seeing life. Years after, when you will be right and your children will say that you are wrong, this is the thing you will realize. You also know one day they would come back and say ‘mom, you were right.’
It is very important for you to have your own savings account. You cannot set sail on the journey of life on being too dependent on parents of your husband. It will also not make you feel guilty every time you ask money to pamper yourself. Don’t be dependent on anyone financially.
As you grow up, life will keep on throwing lemons and at times bigger things. Either you can sit and cry about them or find ways to laugh even in the worst situation. Life is certainly better when you handle it with a sense of humor.
It is true, as you grow up you will be thinking of getting married and having kid of your own. There is nothing wrong in getting married young except you will grow up too fast. Take your time to enjoy all the stages of life. Things are much easier when you do not have to take care of a family while you are young.
Break the rules
It is true that rules are important for a peaceful life but once in a while breaking them isn’t bad. Take risk, go for leap of faith, or be a little reckless. Relax and at times focus on yourself. After all, they will give you the memories to rejoice when you are old.
You are young and have a whole life in front of you. Yes, you are worried about studying, getting a job, and falling in love. Take a deep breath and relax. You life will turn out fine, do not take unnecessary stress.
Being someone beside you is something wonderful. In your time of need, he will be there by your side. However, the truth is that you have to fight you own battle and no one can do it for you. So, it is ‘you’ who can solve your own problems and no one else.
If you love someone, let them know. They may say no but there is also a chance that they will be with you forever. Take the chance to fight for love.
