I made a discovery recently.
This discovery has to do with something I had no idea I was even missing out on.
Something I assumed I didn't really need in my life.
Something that never really came naturally to me.
The discovery was...
Friendships with other women are empowering as fuck!
You may be wondering why I said I didn't think I needed these friendships in my life, or how they never really came naturally to me.
The reason why I didn't think I needed friendships with other women is simply because I've never really had a strong core group of women in my life (outside of my amazing family) that were always supportive and encouraging, while still being honest and authentic.
So to me, it was just my norm to only have one or two awesome friends, without thinking much of it.
The reason why it never really came naturally to me is because I've always been "one of the boys".
I've always gotten along better with the guys - but here's the kicker...
It's not because I like guy friends better than girl friends.
It's because I have zero tolerance for bullshit, bitchiness and mood swings.
And guys really don't embody those qualities often, so I found myself enjoying the ease of their friendships much more than than back-stabbing high school BS that girls do to each other.
That was, until I realized I had the ability to surround myself with women who are like-minded.
Women who aren't catty.
Women who don't talk shit.
Women who empower you.
Women who inspire you.
Women who are just good fucking people to be around.
I didn't know what I was missing.
But now I'm experiencing friendships with so many amazing women, who are doing incredible things, and wanting the best for themselves - while also wanting the best for me too!
I've met women who come from a place of understanding that we can ALL live our ideal lives, because we know there is enough abundance for everyone.
Having friendships with women who are kind-hearted, soul-centered people is such a game changer!
Their feminine energy is a completely positive experience for me now, and has replaced my previous thinking that friendships with women are mostly draining drama.
They've inspired me to get in touch with my own feminine energy, which has opened up a whole new realm of myself that I barely even knew existed, haha.
And - despite the fact that I'll always (proudly) be a little rough around the edges - I can finally say that I enjoy being one of the girls, instead of one of the guys.
