Why your girlfriends are so important

We all need someone to talk to. Our girlfriends can fulfil that need.

You know how it goes when you have a day that seems never ending. The kids are all tired, miserable, hard to deal with. Your boss is having a bad day so everyone else gets to have a bad day too. The tension is so thick you can cut it with a knife. Your husband is on a road trip and not back for a week. You are single and you need someone to talk to.

Enter your heroine, your best friend.

Your best friend!


When you need someone to just listen, she is there for you. When you need someone to help you sort out a situation, your best friend is there for you. And when you just need someone to whinge to, again she is there.

Our girlfriends can help sort out our problems!


We all need to release and vent to stay healthy.

Girlfriends are there to go for a walk, chat over a glass of wine, take an impromptu road trip, or spend the night dancing in the city. They are there, period.

In the book "Men Are From Mars, Women Are from Venus" by John Gray, it describes how men and women are different from each other - besides the obvious physical differences - in the ways of communication.

If you talk to a man about your problems he goes away into the cave in his mind to try to solve the problem for you. He thinks, mulls over, and stays there until he has a solution to your problem. Then he emerges to give you an answer, and it is great that he wants to do this - but it isn't always what we need.

Women, however, are designed differently. We need to flesh out our problems with conversation. We need to talk about whatever is bothering us, vocalise it out loud, and the more we chat about a problem, the more our mind comes up with solutions. Our girfriends are great sounding boards to help us with those wonderful ideas that see us fixing our problems.

Call your girlfriend!


The key is to make sure you keep the line of communication open with your friends. It is easy to lose touch when your children are small. The kids need you and you feel you never have enough time for yourself. Your friends, if they have kids, can just as easily chat with you at a park where all the kids can run wild for an hour while you solve each other's problems. When you are busy at work you don't feel there is enough time to do all you want to do. Make time, see your friends.

The benefits are as good as a therapist's office - the release of the problem is important.

Release your problems so you can enjoy the beauty of life!


Now this is not to say that you should not have a good rapport with your hubby or boyfriend, but your girlfriend is always there to listen, and chances are, will be more sympathetic. So be sure to cherish your girlfriends, and nurture the relationships, they may just save your life - or your sanity!
