Evan Rachel Wood Shares the Lessons She's Learned in Her 20s: 'Trust Your Intuition'

Finally, Wood explains why finding your truth and trusting your intuition are a few of the most important things you can do for yourself. She insists that you must “learn to say no, without guilt,” and to follow the wise words of Dr. Seuss, “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.”

“Don’t play games,” she says. “Don’t make people guess. Don’t expect them to know what you need, we can’t read minds… yet.”

“Trust your intuition,” she continues. “After asking yourself the important questions, know when the problem isn’t about you. Learn the red flags for toxic people. Sometimes you learn by falling into the trap. If you are feeling drained of your life force, that’s a red flag. If you don’t know who you are anymore, that’s a red flag. If you constantly walk on eggshells and make yourself smaller to please someone else, that’s a red flag. If your self-worth is placed on another person’s opinion of you, that’s a red flag.”
