When I feel low or confused or even euphorically happy, I call up my girlfriends. I have a close circle of about three girlfriends who I speak to regularly.
Have Your Girlfriends on Speed Dial!
I have my girlfriends on speed dial on my phone so I can access their numbers easily. I admit I’m not the greatest at keeping in touch, so my friends end up taking the initiative and calling me more than me.
I have another close friend who lives in India now and we communicate daily through the WhatsApp application. We call each other through Skype and catch up on each other’s lives. My other close friend is in medical school, so we set up phone dates considering both our busy schedules and cram in a conversation.
Depending on how busy we are, it can be a ten minute catch up to a two hour intense conversation!
Lean On Them for Support and Friendship
These are the relationships that were not enforced or created through blood or genetics. They are relationships chosen by you and just like a plant, nurture and care are required to water this friendship plant and cause it to bloom.
Lean on your close girlfriends for support and guidance. Talk to them simply to express yourself and be yourself. Laugh openly and enjoy with them. Let them listen to you. And you do the same for your girlfriends. After all, a friend is one who loves you the way you are.
