12 Things Every Girl In Her 20s Should Know

By Shraya, 17 Oct 2016

Being a girl is definitely not an easy task, especially when you’re in that awkward phase of being a young adult and most of the times have no idea what you’re doing or what is expected of you. This is the period when you’ll find that most things and relationships tend to change and you come face to face with the harsh truths of reality. But don’t lose heart, though the path may be tough, you’ll certainly get through. But as you make your journey, here are some of the things you should keep in mind and know in your heart:

1. A break up isn’t the end of the world


It may be heartbreaking at the time, and you might believe that no one else understands how you feel. But trust me, it’s true when people say that time heals all wounds and soon enough, this one will fade as well.

2. When it’s time to cut off friends


Sometimes, you just grow out of friends with time as you change and mature and if you try to stay in touch then somehow they might hold you down whether inadvertently or on purpose. So when a friend adds more negative to your life than positive, then it’s time to severe ties.

3. How to dine alone at a restaurant without feeling self-conscious


For some women, dining alone is harder than a breakup, because the idea of being alone amidst a throng of people who aren’t in solitude not only makes you nervous but also vulnerable. So its high time that you took a brave step forward, after all, a little food won’t hurt, right?

4. When it’s time to let things go with a guy

You might think that fighting and nagging are normal in a relationship, but what you need to know is that if you and your man were truly meant to be, there wouldn’t be a squabble every single day. So if you’ve started to get the feeling that he’s holding you back, or he makes you frown more than laugh, then it’s time to move on. When the time is right, you’ll find someone who truly makes you happy!

5. How to accept yourself the way you are


It doesn’t matter whether your singing voice is too hoarse or you’ve got a few extra curves than the ideal woman on your figure. You are unique, you are beautiful, and you are amazing. So, learn to love yourself for who you are, and learn to make the world love you for being yourself.

6. How to take a compliment with grace

Taking compliments is easy for some yet akin to moving mountains for others. What you need to understand is, a compliment is always a voice of honesty, even if you don’t believe it. So if you get one then learn to appreciate it, a small smile, a nod or a ‘thank you’ is all you need to do!

7. How to cook at least one delectable dish

Whether you’re a chef in the making or someone who is yet to master the art of boiling water, making at least one savory dish should be amongst your list of abilities. You never know when it may happen to come in handy!

8. If you’re waiting for a guy to change, then stop waiting; he won’t.


Despite what books and movies (and even some guys) have made you believe, if there’s something about him that you don’t like, and if you expect him to change, then you have two simple options. You can either pack your bags and go, or just give up the hope that any change will come, because change is nowhere around the corner. And remember, it’s not love if you don’t love him the way he is.

9. Stick with the same kind of drink in one go

A tip for your Friday nights and Saturday excursions; if you’re out getting wasted with your friends then the best (and most important) rule to follow is to stick to one drink. So either down those flavored vodkas or chug all the beer you can but try not to mix and match if you want to get out with the breeziest hangover headache the next morning.

10. It’s always better to use protection

This is probably something that you know, but saying it again is never enough. Always, ALWAYS use protection; you don’t want your life to end up topsy turvy in case something goes wrong in the heat of the moment.

11. How to ask for or tell people what you need


This one is something that girls are stereotyped to often avoid, and for good reason! It’s important to let people know exactly what you mean without leaving your words or thoughts open to interpretation. If they care for you, then your desires will certainly be heeded!

12. Stop worrying about the future!


A little bit of future planning here and there is always helpful but fretting over the future will leave you with a permanent frown on your face and dampen the spring in your step. Learn to be happy for what you have and live in the present moment. And always remember to smile. So, Carpe Diem!
