The Importance of Friendship

Updated: Apr 24, 2018

Wassup peoples! This week I wanted to talk about the importance of friendship. As I write this post I'm having a girl's weekend with one of my childhood besties. We live in different states now and have different life commitments. My friend, Heather, is married with children and I'm a single woman who is usually working on some project most of the time. But we make a concerted effort to get together and few times a year for a short girls get-a-way.

Heather and I have been best friends since 5th grade. She's the mature, sensible, "lets talk it out" friend in my inner circle. She was also the one friend who shared my affection for writing insanely long letters. On our best days we would write 20-30 page letters (when we ended up in separate high schools).

Her friendship was important to me because she accepted me for who I was, which was a shy and very moody young person. We worked through many issues together-always honest with one another...even when it was difficult to do so. That's key! True friendship can only be cultivated in truth. Life is hard to navigate alone and having someone in your corner along the way; who is going through similar life events; can make this journey more enjoyable during the good times, and a bit more easier during the difficult ones.

Our friendship is further fortified during our shopping excursions, going out to dinner, or just sitting and talking about random topics. Having a sounding board to discuss anything without judgement is a wonderful and crucial element in not just friendship but any type of relationship you have.

What are some things you like to do with your friends? How is friendship important to you? Let me know in the comments below. Okay y'all I'm off to hit the streets with my bestie. Check ya'll later!
