10 things all GIRLS should know.

But I'm pretty sure all these are valuable points
for pretty much females of any age. 
Either that or I'm a little delayed in the aging process
cause last time I checked twenty tween wasn't something real.
(even though I deep down really realllyyyyyy want it to be)

My personal favorites :

1.  If you choose to wear shirts that show off your boobs, you will attract boys. 
To be more specific, you will attract the kind of boys that like to look down girls’ shirts.  If you want to date a guy who likes to look at other girls’ boobs and chase skirts, then great job; keep it up.  If you don’t want to date a guy who ogles at the breasts of other women, then maybe you should stop offering your own breasts up for the ogling.  All attention is not equal.  You think you want attention, but you don’t.  You want respect.  All attention is not equal.

2. Don’t go to the tanning bed. 
You’ll thank me when you go to your high school reunion and you look like you’ve been airbrushed and then photoshopped compared to the tanning bed train wrecks formerly known as classmates – well, at least next to the ones that haven’t died from skin cancer.

 6. Never let a man make you feel weak or inferior because you are an emotional being. 
Emotion is good; it is nothing to be ashamed of.  Emotion makes us better – so long as it remains in it’s proper place: subject to truth and reason.

7.  Smoking is not cool.

8.  Stop saying things like, “I don’t care what anyone thinks about me.” 
 First of all, that’s not true.  And second of all, if it is true, you need a perspective shift.  Your reputation matters – greatly.  You should care what people think of you.

9. Don’t play coy or stupid or helpless to get attention. 
Don’t pretend something is too heavy so that a boy will carry it for you.  Don’t play dumb to stroke someone’s ego.  Don’t bat your eyelashes in exchange for attention and expect to be taken seriously, ever.  You can’t have it both ways.  Either you show the world that you have a brain and passions and skills, or you don’t.  There are no damsels in distress managing corporations, running countries, or managing households.  The minute you start batting eyelashes, eyelashes is all you’ve got.

10.  You are beautiful.  You are enough. 
The world we live in is twisted and broken and for your entire life you will be subjected to all kinds of lies that tell you that you are not enough.  You are not thin enough.  You are not tan enough.  You are not smooth, soft, shiny, firm, tight, fit, silky, blonde, hairless enough.  Your teeth are not white enough.  Your legs are not long enough.  Your clothes are not stylish enough.  You are not educated enough.  You don’t have enough experience.  You are not creative enough.

  1. As a guy, I would whole-heartedly agree with these points.

    To the girls and ladies out there, don't ever degrade yourself just to gain the acceptance of others. You are who you are, have some confidence in yourselves. Those that see and love you for who you are, those are the people you want to keep around.

    Sure you have flaws, and it is only natural to want to improve. However, do what you are comfortable and happy with doing. Listen not to just anyone, but to those that actually matter.

    That aside, I am sounding wayyyyy too old...
