Hey hey hey!
Dear Young woman, how are you? Do you see the beauty in yourself? Are you confident in your abilities? Are you sure about your direction? Are you allowing other people to sell you their ideas on happiness?
You are grown now, you are somewhat an adult and free to mingle. Are you giggling back at the first young man that tells you he loves you? Are you quick to take off you clothes to make sure you “feel” his love?
Do you love you? You must love you before anybody can love you. Do you know the difference between love and lust? Do you think sex is going to make your love stronger? Let’s even back up, what do you know about sex? Do you only know about the possible pleasures? Are you aware of the high risks involved such as STDs some of which are untreatable or is your biggest worry being a single parent? Do you know anything about birth control? The many options available to you, if you actually have sex and the birth control methods that are not fully fool proof?
Are you aware of the risks involved with abortions? Especially if you live in a country such as Nigeria where abortions are illegal? Even if you live where it is legal, have you considered the psychological aftermath? Can you carry the weight emotionally?
Are you sure of yourself enough to only do the things that you want to do and not the things others want you to do?
Do you exist to please others or care if everyone likes you or not? Are your decisions or behaviors based on this?
Finally are you confident in your decisions? And your ability to make good ones?
I am considering writing this as a series, if you enjoyed this piece let me know. If not be honest and tell me what can be better or if I should just scrap it.
