"I love men. But, there is no husband, fiance, boyfriend, or lover that can replace the friendship of a bestie or two." ~PT, AUTHOR OF EVOLVING BEAUTY BRANDS
When I was a young girl I remember being told
"look at your friends and you'll see your future." "Pick your friends like fruit," meaning be selective/picky...I agree with those sentiments to some degree. Unlike family, we can choose our TRIBE. We all have friends that we just no longer click with, we've grown in different directions and just have little in common. But it doesn't negate the importance of the bond, the shared times, secrets, escapades and excursions. Romantic relationships are paramount. But, there is no husband, finance, boyfriend or lover that can replace the friendship of a bestie or two.
A true girlfriend is one with trust and loyalty, an ear to listen, a voice of reason, good for a great laugh together, deep and surface secrets. The lounge or club partner, ride or die, or the shoulder to cry on. The homie that tells you--you're over-reacting, you're tripping, or you're wrong on this one. Yet, equally as supportive to celebrate your new gig, project, husband, graduation, or other celebratory milestone.
At Evolving Beauty Brands we speak about TRIBE often, in our Business book, The Business of Beauty in a New Age and Self & Brand Mastery Lifestyle book, THE PLANNER, Essential Tactics to Being Happy & Successful. TRIBE is paramount to business and personal life, the supportive circle that help define our family and community.
Today, our TRIBE, is who we make it. The people in our circle of life that we CHOOSE to share our lives with. Sure, as we mature the circle gets smaller, but it also gets stronger. The TRIBE selection becomes solid.
