The Importance of Girlfriends




   Growing up I was horrible. I always thought I was cool when I said things like “I don’t like girls” or “ All my friends are boys.” Yeah, I was one of those girls but in my defense I was bullied a lot and it was always by other girls. Once I got older I realized the importance of female friends. There is nothing more fun than being on the phone for hours with a girlfriend or getting dressed up, doing each other’s hair and makeup while swigging margaritas. 

   The main thing I miss about leaving Arizona are my girls. Some friends I had longer than others but each relationship meant something to me. We all bonded in some way. Whether it was crying over a guy, road trips or complaining about our kids. We were there when we needed each other. 

   I bring this up because I hear a lot of young girls say the same things I used to and I think it’s a cycle.

   We need to start teaching these young ladies what Girl Power means. Its cool to be in a relationship but there’s nothing like female camaraderie. We need to lift each other up with positive words and stop tearing one another down with all this bitchiness. 

   Pay it forward, the next girl you see, give her a compliment on her shoes or tell her you like her hair. What’s the worst that can happen? You might make a new friend.

  1. It's so funny that you mentioned this today, I was the same way growing up. I always seemed to get along better with boys then girls and when I got older I realized how important girlfirends are as well. And you're 100% right we do need to teach our daughters and the younger generation the meaning of girl power and that we're stronger united then we are when we put eachother down or bully one another. Love this post and I couldn't agree with you more.

    1. I think its just something that comes with age. Having girlfriends are very important even if they're far away :)

  3. I am the same way!! Girls (and women) can be so mean! It was always easier to just be friends with the boys. Now that I am an adult I have realized how important it is to have another woman in your corner.

    Thank for sharing on the #SHINEbloghop!
