There’s no one in the world like our girlfriends, but sometimes we get so caught up in our careers, relationships, kids, volunteering, and everything else we’ve got going on that we forget our second family—our friends. If you’ve got great friends, they probably understand why things have been a little distant between you two but there’s no time like the present to start building that friendship back up and making sure you are there for each other whenever you’re needed. Here are 3 things you should think about doing now to strengthen your friendships:
Pick up the phone: Texting hasn’t only broken down communication in opposite sex relationships; it’s also done a number on BFFs. When you don’t really have time to chat, texting is a quick way to check in with your friends and make sure things are OK, but that should never replace a night of girl talk. Every now and then we all need to vent and you can’t tell how someone is really feeling through a message sent on your phone. Make sure you hear your girl’s voice often.
