- 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.
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- 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
- Be close to God
- Learn a skill
- Relax, everything will go exactly as it should and even better
- You’ll grow to love Mini outfits (dresses and skirts) stop saying terrible things about people that love them already
