EP Original Women...what Advice Would You Give a Young Lady


Wisdom:  Advice to Young Women

We all learn important lessons as we grow older.  Hear the words of wisdom these ladies would pass on to other young women.

Check it out, and then share YOUR advice!


 “My advice for young women is to just be you! Screw stereotypes and forget the people who call you a wuss for not trying this or that. Be you!  Be Your Own Women.” (Aminik)

“…get a pap smear and a breast screening. Don't let anyone take advantage of you. And always remember, this too shall pass.” (Angeladark)

“My best advice for younger women would be to listen to the advices of the older women in their lives. These women's stories have much you could learn from.”  (Aristartle)

“The best advice is: don't sweat it. Don't spend your youth worried about ANYTHING, if you can help it. I did. It wasn't fun, and in the end it was worthless to worry. So don't, if you can avoid it. Do crazy things. See famous places. DO, and don't worry.”  (Celainn)

I would tell young women that there is a whole world out there waiting for them and to make the most of it. Do not let anyone keep you from your goals and dreams …You need to grab the bull by the horns so to speak while the opportunity is there. You have choices just remember that.”  (Cinfullynn)

“…just be yourself and do the best that you can do…. You've got to take care of yourself before you can take care of anyone else.” (girl4god)

Mostly, I try to teach my girls to respect themselves. To not let anyone intimidate them, or push them into anything they don't want to do.  (heavenbesideyou)

“… never fade your light for someone else.. You can do everything in life you want, no matter what your life starts... The fierceness you are born with is the same that will carry you thru your life.”  (justjessie)

“Trust  yourself… Learn to listen to your own wisdom and to trust it….Never expect someone to make you happy or to complete you or your life.” (lexus)

“My mother once told me that I should use the talents you possess; for the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except the best."  (scarlet54)

 “Don’t neglect friendships for a man..Do not rely on any one 100%, understand that you have the right to define yourself as a human being…” (just4play)

 “Never settle for less than your dreams. Love who you are not what someone wants you to be”  (redheadsrule)

 “DO NOT EVER quit learning! Be diverse in knowledge AND skills--- physically and mentally.”  (Emerald)

“I’ve always believed that being yourself and accepting you for who you are is one of the most crucial things you can do to lead a happy and successful life.”  (luangi)

“Never make your heart love someone... love comes natural and will never work if you make it! (Think of love as a puzzle... if the piece doesn't fit... do you make it? Does it ever fit or look right if you do push it to belong where it doesn't?” (mammy)

“Be impeccable with your word.  You are only as good as your word.”  (peaceonearth)

 “Be proud of who you are.” (mother2045)

“To open your eyes to your own inner power” (nzingha)

“Be your own person. Let your conscience be your guide. Don't define yourself by your mistakes, learn from them and move forward. Take nothing for granted. Live in the now. Give more than you take. Be no man's doormat. Marriage is a partnership and a deep friendship.”  (searchingformeaning)

 “My advice is simple. Be honest especially with yourself.”  Advice (selamoonshine)

 “Remember that a crash-landing is not a failure, but staying crashed is.” Advice (sunnykris)

 “I would tell her to sit quietly, and focus on your out-breath. Give away the thing that would be hardest for you to give up, whatever it is.” (tate3)

“Don't sweat the small stuff!”  (windyspirit)

“Apply love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, mildness, and self control in your life. Love moves others to love you in return. Joy gives you the strength to cope with challenges. Peace helps you to keep your relationships free of strife. Long-suffering enables you to stay happy even when you are under trial. Kindness draws others to you. Goodness on your part makes others respond when you need help. Faith will assure you of loving direction. Mildness will bring you calmness of heart, mind, and body. Self-control means that your mistakes will be fewer.”  (mello)

“My advice to all young women would be to follow your dreams, love yourself first, and to never settle…”   (missalissa)


"Dont knuckle under to stereotypes as you get older. Yes, you will change. But change does not mean falling off the radar screen. It means adapt and overcome!" (Armadillo)
