Friendships: How Many Do You Need?

February 21, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 171

We could teach our daughters and ourselves a lot about friendship. How many friends does a girl need? In a world where we glamorize hundreds of friends, flocks, and follows, it may be hard to accept a woman only needs one... or two. Here are a couple of questions to reflect upon to be sure your life is filled with those few who add meaning.

Who Is Your 2 a.m. Friend? My mom used to say, "When mess hits the fan, there are less than a handful of people you can call on and count on at 2 a.m." Whom do you call? Who would show up? Whether it's a flat tire or house fire, think about who has your back. It's amazing to meet teens who believe they really have 2,000 friends. Now, more than ever, it's vital that we recognize our 2 a.m. friends.

Who Is Your Cheerleader? Whether you are 15 or 50, you need a friend who cheers you on, celebrates your milestones and big leaps, shouting all along the way, "You can do this." You need someone who is neither threatened by your gifts, nor resentful of your triumphs, one who embodies a deep and profound sense of security.

As we embrace new tools that bring more friends, remember the few who give your life meaning. Recognize the few who matter. At the end of your life, you'll think back to the few in your corner who made it all worth living. Here's to celebrating fierce friends and authentic friendships!
