friends who have goals and aspirations; who not only open the door but walk through the door! I seek to surround myself with women who aren't content and complacent but achieving and advancing!
Birds of a feather flock together and if we're all in sync, then this will be an easy flight! But if one bird has a broken wing, then the other birds have to work twice as hard to allow that 1 bird to coast on their efforts. I can be honest, I was once that broken bird; however I never wanted to be a burden to my other friends so I never did the long distance flights. I knew my limits. However, not all "friends" are so self-less. From this I learned how to be my own friend! I've spent many hours talking to myself in the mirror or in the car! No, not lonely-just becoming more acquainted with who I am. How can I be a good friend to someone else if I can't be a friend to myself? And how will I know if my friends are right for me if I don't know who I am?
As you come into your womanhood, it is very imperative that you have a clear understanding of what qualities you want your friends to possess. Lucky for me, my friends are multi-faceted! Each woman is achieving her life goals, has a great personality, gives wonderful advice and when its time to act a fool, #FOOOLERY! Don't think that all your friends have to fit a cookie cutter mold, they don't! However, they should all have that one quality that is most important to you! Think of it as a bag of skittles, every piece is chewy, but each has a distinct flavor.
What qualities should one look for in a friend?
