Women need each other.
Most of my friends are men. It’s just the way it is. I grew up playing ice hockey, running around the neighborhood, and riding dirt bikes (shadowing my older brother). His friends just seemed to have more fun (the fun I like anyway). I never got into what clothes, purses, or shoes I had, or drama or gossip. I prefer racing cars, flying planes, and negotiating deals. But all that being said I would NEVER be who I am without the girlfriends I have. If we are lucky, we find a friend that can see us for who we really are, beyond our flaws, nuances, and fallibility. Who understands us. Who truly loves us unconditionally, as we are. This friend helps define us and the person we become. I have been lucky enough to find three of these friends that have been there most of my life (over 20 years). We talk almost daily. And if we miss a few days, I feel a void that only one of them can fill. It is a bond of support, empathy, compassion, and love. No matter what new idea I have, they believe in me, encourage and push me. This love is stronger than any challenges or opposition I face. They have all stood by me in the hardest times in my life, sometimes carrying me forward one hour at a time. These women are genuinely my foundation. I am so grateful for each of them. To years of expansion, raising our children together, and trying to make a difference in the world. I couldn’t do it without them. We rise and fall together!” #bffsforever #truefriends #femininity #bond
