What three “gifts” would you give a 20-something if you were a “Forty-Godmother”? This is where I ask 40-something women to share 3 things to help a 20-something get a head start on gaining confidence to make decisions that are right for you. No more woulda, coulda, shoulda.
1. Pain is finite.
2. Do you. Be you. You don’t want to be with anybody else that wants to be with whoever you’re pretending to be. Be with somebody that wants to be with you because there is someone that wants to be with you. Know that there is that person that loves you and will appreciate you for all the beautiful things that you are. There really is. So don’t worry about being somebody else. Just do you.
3. Don’t put so much pressure on yourself. Just let it happen because it will. Don’t try so hard. You don’t have to try so hard.
