10 Things I Want Every Young Girl to Know

Growing up is hard. Here are ten things I wish someone told me while I was growing up.

Do things for yourself.

This might sound so selfish but you’ll be happier in the end if you do things for yourself instead of doing it for others.

Take care of your skin.

You’ll thank me when you’re older. Moisturize, cleanse and exfoliate your face.

Be loyal to your family.

Never take them for granted. They will always be there for you, no matter what.

Surround yourself with positive people.

Don’t waste your time and energy on negative and useless things. Focus on the good and surround yourself with people who help you maintain a positive aura.

Do your best in school.

You probably won’t need everything you learn in school but studying well instills within you a sense of discipline that can never be taught elsewhere.

Take care of your heart.

Don’t just give it to anyone. Take your time and get to know yourself first before giving your heart away. You can only fall in love with your whole heart once.

Smoking is not cool.

See all those ads and movies encouraging you to smoke? Don’t fall for it. Smoking kills you and others around you. Be wise!

Take care of your reputation.

Nobody ever really says this, “I don’t care what other people say about me”, and means it. Believe me, take care of your reputation. Don’t do something your future self will hate you for.

Don’t give in to peer pressure.

I know it’s so much easier said than done. If you ever give in, try to stop before it’s too late. Always remember: DO THINGS FOR YOURSELF.

Love yourself.

Above all else, do this. Remember that this is your life and you only have one shot at it. Always love yourself. All of you, flaws and all.

    • Thank you!! How old are your sisters? Inspiration ko dito yung 11 year old niece ko. I’m scared for her…puberty is just around the corner haha 😀

      • Aww. Ang sweet naman ni Tita! <3
        4 years old palang yung bunso kong kapatid. 😀 Pero may 3 sisters pa ko na mejo malalaki na. 22, 20 and 16. 😀
        This is really helpful, Kat. 🙂

  1. This list is so important. ‘Don’t give in to peer pressure’ – the amount of times someone has called me a bitch because I have stood up for something I believe in instead of taking their side or doing what they want when I think it’s wrong is unbelievable. And the idea of not going your heart away too easily is wonderful, easier said than done, but something that we all need to remember.

    • Thanks Grace! Growing up I cannot count the number of times I gave in to peer pressure. I wish I had more courage back then to stand up to what I truly believed in. Hopefully this list can serve as reminders for the younger kids. 🙂

    • Thank you!! 😀 I was writing it for my niece who is growing up way too fast for me.

    • Hehe! That’s the ultimate goal. I really hope it guides you. I had my young niece in mind when I wrote it. 🙂

  4. Take care of your skin. — this is one of the things I am still learning to do until now. Haha

    • Haha! I just wish someone told me when I was younger. Imagine all the acne/blackheads that could have been avoided 😛
