There are eight distinct friends that every woman needs. The bonds we form with different people we come across in life can be binding and can last us a lifetime. Beautiful friendships not only make life great, but they also help in combatting a host of illnesses.
Friends that have lasted through school, college, your marriage, your children, your children’s children, will still remember things that you forget. They will remember the person you were, the person you left behind and often when you are getting off track, and doing something that is off character, they will pull you back on track.
Make it a point to speak with your childhood friend at least once every two weeks to stay close over a lifetime.
New friends, do not know where you come from, they have no pre-conceived notions about you and therefore will not judge you. Forming new friendships is very important. Look for people who share and nurture these relationships, as it will help you grow as an individual as well.
Your children’s freind’s parents, a friend at the gym or someone at the pottery class can make for a great friend.
