Words of wisdom every young lady needs to hear

Just look at Ruffa Gutierrez who greeted her firstborn a happy 18th birthday. “These are exciting times for you: just graduated high school, going to college, starting your career with Viva Artist Agency. The opportunities coming your way are endless,” she posted.

Admitting that Ruffa does sound like a mom, this realization still didn’t stop her from giving words of wisdom to her eldest daughter, “Don’t be in such a hurry to grow up. Savour your youth. Yes, you’re officially an adult, but that definition means being responsible with all aspects of your life.”

“Be a leader, not a follower. Chase your dreams, travel the world, pursue your goal of taking up law, be a good girl — huwag muna mag boyfriend (don’t have a boyfriend). And if you decide to have one 10 years from now, choose wisely. Be with someone who respects you and is god fearing. Don’t just follow your heart, Lorin, use your brain,” she tells her daughter on getting into a relationship.

She ends her heartfelt post by reminding her daughter to always choose kindness. “Use your platform to be an inspiration to others.”
