“It’s Worth The Read. Women In Their 40’s+ Give Advice To Their 20-Something Selves”


Live alone for a while. Many women jump at the chance to have a roommate or worse, live with a man. These women have zero transition from living with parents to spreading their wings. To do things without thinking of anyone but themselves.

Don’t go to bars, pubs or taverns to mingle with like minded people. A night out with friends with whom you have a vocation or avocation in common with dinner and a few drinks, but hitting bars to get drunk is a dead-end route.

Gravitate to those who share genuine interests with you. Volunteer with any group which matches your interest; the SPCA, Hospice, Wellness, Reading to elementary children, seniors. Every community has a need for volunteers.

Learn from these women and enrich your Twenties.

  1. I thank these women for sharing their wisdom and hope many teens and young women everywhere will heed their advice and have an opportunity for a better life.

    I might add, albeit from a male’s point of view, that life will be far better with the more education everyone achieves. It is difficult to live on $15.00 unless, as these women note, women live with a guy.

  2. Incredibly valuable advice from women who have been there. The first words of wisdom, “Leave at the first lie” is paramount. Thousands of women would avoid heartbreak if the did so.

    Believing male bull shit can be tragic and lead to one transgression after another.

    My Mom was incredibly blunt and forthcoming with her advice to me at an early age. I remember well her telling me that if her husband had ever hit her, she would be out the door immediately and never consider returning. Ditto if he tried to control her or demeaned her in any way.

    Yes, my Mom rocks!! And although I have taken her advice to extremes on many occasions, I would recommend it for any teen or woman.

  3. I believe I learned more about how to interact with women when I was in university than any place else. I went directly from high school into the Army and then Delta Force. All male.
    Being ten years+ older than the rest of the student body, I was often asked for advice. Not having any, I asked questions and would be puzzled with the answers and basically ask, “Why don’t you leave him?”
