There’s something magical about the relationship you have with your closest female friends.
If you’re anything like me and you have a number of close female friends you can call on for support, advice, love and laughter than consider yourself one of the fortunate ones. I know some women who don’t have a best friend. I have at least five.
I count my lucky stars that the people I call my best friends I’ve known for 5 years or more. Two of them go back even longer – when we were children playing in the school fields at our primary school. I was about 9 years old at the time and our friendships have blossomed, evolving with our changing lives and still very strong after nearly 20 years.
My best friends are the truest friends a girl will ever find. We’ve been through good times, tough times, happy times, sad times, and the highs and lows that come with life. We’ve had disagreements, but we’ve always been open to each others views and opinions. We’ve shared our dreams, our hopes and our fears. We’ve never ever let a guy get between us, and we have kept our promises to each other to maintain our friendships even in the face of distance. And we have. Knock on wood.
It’s hard to find people you trust, but fortunately for me, they make it easy because all of them are trustworthy. So I trust these girls explicitly. We might not be blood related, but they are definitely my soul sisters. They are the first people I turn to when I need a listening ear or a shoulder to cry.
I value my female friends just as I value myself. They understand the meaning of sisterhood. It doesn’t matter what happens, I know they are always on my side, no matter what. Guys have come and gone, but the girls have always been there for me. Always.
And when you find friends like mine, you learn to be grateful and appreciate what you have. Real friendships are like precious diamonds: they are rare and aren’t freely given, so you cherish them and treasure them however and whenever they come your way.
