How many times have you heard these statements from other women? “I don’t deal with women.” “I don’t have female friends.” What are your thoughts when you hear these statements? My thoughts? Those words are coming from a place of hurt. Maybe she was hurt by a former friend or other close female in her life. We put up emotional walls after being scorned in friendships just as we do in any other failed relationship. I don’t believe that a woman just wakes up one day and decides that, for no reason, she does not want to ‘deal’ with other women. As much as we may not be able to admit it, we really do need one another.
Do We Really Need One Another?
Yes! Absolutely! Women are nurturers. We are naturally inclined to take care of those around us, including one another. We look to one another for understanding, for advice, or simply a listening ear. Friendships among women are often strong and emotional, so, of course, when that bond falls apart, it can be very upsetting, making one leery of opening up to others. Because of this, we have to be as cautious in choosing these close friends as we are in choosing our romantic partners. Protect your circle!
