I’m writing this post because I recently went through something where I needed support and I needed someone to talk to. My women friends were there and are still there to give me support….a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, and offering advice that I need to hear. It’s wonderful to know that no matter what I have these women who will always love and support me with no judgement. I’m so grateful.
I believe women need other women in their lives. It’s great to have friends of both genders but I think women can benefit more from their female relationships. Just to be able to talk with your women friends and tell your story can be so healing. There are studies that actually show that women friends are good for both your emotional and physical health. Just spending time with female friends actually reduces stress. Friends who listen to you, laugh with you, cry with you, encourage you, and help you when you need it most can make you feel you are not alone as you deal with life’s challenges. And no matter what, you should treasure your women friends for as long as possible because they are a large part of your support system. I consider my women friends my sisters.
There’s a wonderful quote from an anonymous writer that I love. “Behind every successful woman is a tribe of other successful women who have her back.” I have amazing and successful women friends…my sisters! They have gotten me through some tough times in my life. They are there for me and I will always be there for them.
With all my love and a special thank you to all my sisters.
