Since crossing into the highly anticipated, yet arguably overrated terrain of adulthood, some women have become frequent users of the words ‘I’m grown’, as if our adulthood requires some sort of proclamation. The use of these words is usually a result of receiving unsolicited advice whether from strangers or some of our closest friends. So it’s likely that if you have become accustomed to spurting out these words, you probably attempt to stay away from offering unwelcomed advice to other adults, even your girlfriends.
But although a grownup will do what a grownup wants to do because, well they can, there are some instances when we should stop, or at least try to stop our grown girlfriends from doing things we know they will probably regret. After all, that’s what friends are for; and even grown girls need extra guidance at times. From simple reminders to carefully planned interventions, these are seven things you should stop your girlfriends from doing before they regret them.
