LIKE FAMILY, A GOOD FRIEND TELLS YOU THE TRUTH

LIKE FAMILY, A GOOD FRIEND TELLS YOU THE TRUTHOur friends are really FAMILY.If friendship is something we as women and girls can partake in together as one “unit”, then we can consider ourselves as “a family of girls”.Friendship is like family, a connection that is close yet has a love-hate-ship relationship to it; that is like that of a sibling and extended family drama, friendship is sometimes bumpy, jagged, provoking and I have noticed it always comes without rules.The no rules part of friendship makes me laugh, I want rules. But I realize with…
