It's funny how often people talk about how being a teenager is hard, but they don't realize how challenging your 20s can be. You're basically in this awkward area that deals with finishing school, figuring out your love life, trying to make something of yourself and everything else that falls in between.
The truth is, it's difficult to be a 20-something, especially if you thought puberty and high school were the most confusing parts of your life.
Here are 20 things every woman should know in her 20s.
1. You can't change the body type you were born with, so you need to embrace yours.
2. You won't have everything figured out right away, but that's okay.
3. Your parents only ever want what is best for you.
Your 20s are a beautiful time to be alive, but they are also some of the most challenging years of your life. You learn how to handle finances, trust and love others and most importantly, discover yourself.
You will take four steps forwards and seven more backward. Life will beat you down and pick you up again and again. Take a step back, close your eyes, take a deep breathe and open your eyes again. It all will all work out. The unexpected will come, but in the end, the unexpected is all we can be prepared for.
