Why Women Need Other Women

Why Women Need Other Women

As little girls making having friends was fun and it was not terribly difficult to find a playmate. As we got older the relationships grew and became more complicated but important to our adolescence and early adulthood. For many women, once we had children it became harder to maintain female relationships as our attention was focused on our families and all that entails. Many women reach an age where they find themselves craving female friendships and the community that offers. So, why are female friendships so important? Why do women need other women?

Support System for Major Life Events

 Children leaving home, aging parents, divorce, new relationships, new jobs and new adventure are all happening in our lives. Major events are around every corner. Some are exciting, some are sad and some are earth-shattering. The reality is that without friends and community the sweet moments are not as sweet and the hard moments are much harder. Our friends offer support, guidance, a shoulder to cry on and a soft place to land. A tribe of female friends knows how to care for one another and makes the journey through these big changes happier and easier.

They Give Different Support than Male Friendships

Women are more open with their feelings than men and as a result when we are going through a rough patch we need to share our feelings. Other women can relate more easily and are open to discussion. So, where men like to fix problems (in general). Women tend to commiserate and listen without the goal of solving. This type of support can be key to what you need in that moment. So, while your husband, boyfriend, brother or other male might be happy to chat, sometimes a female perspective is what we need most.

Female Friendships Make us Stronger

Do you notice that when you are around people a lot you take on some of their traits? Maybe it is a phrase they use a lot or a mannerism or even an opinion. Well, being around strong women makes you a stronger woman. As women we should celebrate accomplishments and lift each other up, look for those women to be in a community with. They will uplift you, challenge you and make you a better person.

If you are in a place where you feel the need for closer connection with female friends, start today! Pick up the phone, send an email, invite someone for coffee. We are all looking for our community and all it takes are small steps to build toward great life-long friendships. Be open, be present and look for opportunity to build your community of female friends.

How to Get Unstuck In Your Life

How to Get Unstuck In Your Life

There are times that we can all feel dissatisfied with the circumstances of our lives. It can feel like you are stagnant and there is no forward momentum in your life. When you are feeling like you cannot move forward what do you do? Here are some simple tips to get unstuck and regain your feeling of purpose and momentum. 

Let go of the Past

Are you replaying storied of the past in your head? Do you focus on the events of the past? Or the mistakes you have made? If you are stuck reliving the past it is impossible to move into the future. If there are people, events, decisions, actions that weigh on you from the past you will want to deal with those things and let go of that baggage so that you are free to move on. 

Change Your Perspective

 When you are in a stagnant state of mind it can be very difficult to start the process of change. Trying adding some new activities that can shake up your routine and allow you to clear your mind and think in a new way. Meditation, spend time alone, journal or add some new exercise routine to your day. If you can travel or get yourself out of your routine this can be very helpful to giving you space and time to think without the pressure of your day to day routine. 

Start with Small Changes

Once you have some ideas of how to work on your state of mind, start making some changes. Any kind of change is good for the brain and stimulates creativity. Start small by changing a part of your daily routine, rearranging your furniture or making some new friends. These things sound small but they add up to improvement in your life. Little things accumulate and can lead you to feeling unstuck more quickly than you realize.  

Consider Talking to A Professional

If you cannot seem to work your way out of these feelings consider seeing a mental health professional. Sometimes talking to someone outside of your family and friends can give you new perspective and insight into how you are feeling. These people are trained to help you work through this time of your life and come out stronger and happier.

Feelings of dissatisfaction in life are normal and give us a chance to change course and even find new passions and purpose that we may not have otherwise discovered. Lean into your feelings and explore why you are feeling this way and how you can get back on track. It is your life and you choose your journey and experience. It is never the wrong time to make yourself happier!
