Depending where we are in life, names, faces, numbers, and relationships with friends vary. We may feel blessed with a large group or just a special one, but no matter how many or who we consider our friends, it’s important to keep these connections for our own happiness and sanity. And even though ladies can be catty or competitive, there truly is nothing like the female bond and our network of women.
During joyful times, the reality of our joy seems to be best realized when sharing the news with someone. No matter how much we may squeal and jump up and down alone, the celebration is somehow magnified when we tell someone else. The moment becomes more real. And there are some circumstances and celebrations that only another woman can understand. From small triumphs with something we finally said, a sweet moment with a loved one, or a step in our best direction career-wise, some things are best understood by another lady. Whether going out or hanging out in pajamas, some situations just call for one or several of our best gals.
Then there are times that we need to lean on someone, share the burden, or ease the shock with. Again, some situations are only understood by another woman. Life deals us love devastation, health letdowns, family disappointments, and so much more being at any given time. It’s so important to have a fellow lady who doesn’t just come out for toasts, but sticks around after the bubbles fizzle. Some hurts pass while others linger; no matter what the duration, sometimes to just know someone solidly has your back can make all the difference. It seems the real friends we keep and treasure in life choose to step up and stick around during these tougher times, and those types of friends are invaluable.
Sometimes our gender gets feisty with each other. We snap at those we love and criticize those we don’t even know. And while it’s human nature, perhaps make it your nature to love the women in your life. You never know when you’ll want them to show love for you.
