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.
