11 Mistakes Every Girl Makes at Least Once

As a wise woman once said, "Everybody makes mistakes, everybody has those days," and girls are definitely no exception. In case you didn't know, the best offense is a good defense (that's how the saying goes, right?), so get prepared by educating yourself on 11 of the most common mistakes a girl will make in her lifetime. 

1. Cutting her hair during an existential crisis. 

Because how many of us have gone through a tough breakup and said to our friends, "I just really need a change, you know?" 

2. Drunk texting her ex. 

There's a reason he's an ex, and whether it's because he broke your heart or you broke his, you probably shouldn't have sent the telltale "heyyyyyyyyy" at 3 a.m. 

3. Talking badly about her friends. 

As a rule of thumb, you probably shouldn't say something about your friend behind her back that you wouldn't say to her face. Now, people you hate - that's a different story. 

4. Putting too much on her plate.

Some of us are just people pleasers, but you can say "no" every once in a while, too.

5. Staying up late for no reason whatsoever.

Why are you taking a Buzzfeed quiz to find out what type of cheeseburger you are?! It is 2 a.m. and this is getting out of hand. 

6. Severely underestimating the amount of time it takes for her to get ready.

"I'll be ready in five minutes, relax" - a girl to her friends who have been waiting an hour. It's almost as bad as, "I'm leaving now," which we all know is code for, "I'm still in my towel."

7. Wearing shoes that she just can't walk in. 

Heels are the worst; we all know this. So why do we wear them and then wobble around like baby giraffes all night?

8. Wearing an insane amount of makeup. 

Less is more, ladies. Less is more. 

9. Going braless. 

Because that will be the one day of the year when physical activity is inevitable.

10. Getting drunk and losing her wallet and phone. 

Try explaining that one to your mother. 

11. Caring too much about what other people think. 

Because at the end of the day, you are flawless... even when you make mistakes.
