13 THINGS A WOMAN SHOULD HAVE

1. One old love she can imagine going back to... and one who reminds her how far she has come.
2. That her childhood may not have been perfect... but it’s over...
3. A youth she's content to leave behind...
4. A past juicy enough that she's looking forward to retelling it in her old age....
5. One friend who always makes her laugh ... and one who lets her cry...
6. How to quit a job, breakup with a lover, and confronts a friend without ruining the friendship...
7. Whom she can trust, whom she can't, and why she shouldn't take it personally...
8. A feeling of control over her destiny...
9. How to fall in love without losing herself...
10. What she would and wouldn't do for love or more...
11. How to live alone... even if she doesn't like it.
12. When to try harder ... and when to walk away.
13. What she can and can't accomplish in a day... a month...and a year...

That is a wonderful list---and every single thing on it is true (speaking from the perspective of a woman of 50). Believe it, young women.

These are some pretty good nuggets of wisdom. I know that at least one of my previous relationships was ruined because my then girlfriend couldn't grasp #2 on your list.
