​20 Things Every Young Woman in Her

20s Should Know

1. Love and honour your mother.

Learn from her mistakes. It will save

you a lot of headache in your thirties

(30s) and beyond.

2. You are more talented than you’ll

ever know. You don’t need to sleep

with your Boss/ supervisor to get a

promotion at work or better grades at

school. Burn late night candles; put

extra time to study and practice until

you master your skill. Hard work still

pays well and does not kill.

3. Women can build a strong support

network. Don’t let few ladies with

“Pull Her Down” {PHD} syndrome

discourage you from cultivating true

relationship with your female friends.

4. Walk away from deceit. When a

man you meet for the first time

babbles about how much he earns

working for an oil company and how

rich he is, that is a red flag. He is

either a married smooth-talker who

just wants to sleep with you or he is


5. Make your own money. Start small.

Maintain a stable bank account. It will

keep you out of trouble.

6. When you meet your Soul mate,

don’t forget to wear your most

priceless ornament – submission and

humility. But while waiting for him,

don’t cling to any man to rescue you.

Some men these days are also

seeking for who will rescue them.

7. Know your body. Look at yourself in

front of a full-length mirror at least

once a week, naked and after clothed.

Know your body and how it works.

8. Life is a gift. But to revel in it, you

must be ready to put a lot into

nurturing your gifts/talents and skills.

Start early.

9. Teenage ended at 19. Clocking 20

means doing away with childish

behaviour. But it does not mean you

should forget to have fun. You can

catch fun and not be dirty.

10. Learn the basic skills and let

yourself grow – from how to keep

your underwear clean, cook, socialize,

and network to how to drive a car.

11. Don’t do drugs. It kills. Read

books, it fortifies. Dance as often as

you can, it liberates your spirit, soul

and body.

12. Learn to laugh at yourself. It is a

good way to build a healthy self-


13. Eat healthy. Learn to cook for

yourself. Don’t rely on noodles alone.

The cooking skill will be useful in


14. Don’t give up when you fail. Try

again and again. Don’t give up on

education/ learning.

15. Fear of the future. It is a state of

mind you must learn to tame. Don’t

let fear pull the carpet from under

your feet. God has not given us a

spirit of fear but of power, love and a

sound mind.

16. Let go of past hurts. You cannot

move forward if you keep looking

back. Holding on to bitter experiences

and regrets will stale your future.

17. Learn to exhale, love deeply and

be kind to others, especially those of

low estate, and the lowest of low.

18. You are beautiful the way you are.

Don’t compare yourself to others.

19. Partnership builds bridges. Don’t

ever forget that.

20. Prayer is the master key. Have

faith in God and always have the

courage to use your voice wisely.

Dream big today. FEAR simply means

False Evidence Appearing Real. Enjoy

the highs and lows that come with

being in your 20s but don’t be afraid

to grow older. Live life to the fullest

and don’t forget to smile always
