NPR has kicked off their “exploration of the changing lives of women” by asking one of their founding mothers what sort of advice she would give to her younger self. The article has of course ignited a plethora of comments containing valuable advice from the readership. Here are a few lines that I personally need to remember:
Worry more about what you think about yourself than what other people think about you.
Sometimes being honest is more important than being nice.
Speak up, don’t be afraid to make mistakes, and own your successes and failures.
Acquire experiences over possessions.
Be who you wish to be in the world and recognize that you are responsible for this choice.
