1. Going to the university is not the answer to all your life problems : At 16 , I was done with secondary school and was home sad cos I wasn’t in the university yet. I thought that was all I needed to survive.
  2. Stop worrying about your breast, you’ll grow to love it : oh God!! This was a big problem for me, my breast was so big and I was so small . I hated it
  3. Cooking is not a chore, you’ll need it in future : oh dear lord!! I hated cooking, seemed like punishment to me . I wish I accepted it earlier in life cos it still affects me till today, I really don’t like cooking
  4. Go out more, play, have fun: People will say things no matter what you do, trying so hard to avoid your name in people’s mouth has affected you so badly. You’re always inside
  5. You are capable of love: stop stressing yourself about not being able to like a boy for more than 2wks, you are capable of love and love in Abundance
  6. Don’t expect anything: you learnt this the hard way later in life but I wish you knew this early. Would have made it easier
  7. Be close to God
  8. Learn a skill
  9. Relax, everything will go exactly as it should and even better
  10. You’ll grow to love Mini outfits (dresses and skirts) stop saying terrible things about people that love them already
