I use to think that having a great girl friend meant I had done something right,
That I had picked a good friend.
The older I get, nothing could be further from the truth.
My best girl friends in life have always chosen me.
I guess I assumed having a good friend meant I was a good friend.
I am a horrible friend.
I forget to call.
I forget birthdays.
I change plans, often times at the last minute.
I need a girlfriend to call me out about these things.
And I've found several.
Knowing where I am lacking as a friend is not always a fun conversation.
But if I want to have a good friend, it's important to learn to be one.
And I am grateful that the good Lord has sent me just the girls for the job.
So why do we as women avoid making new friends?
I think we avoid new girl friends because:
1.) There's too much laundry to do,
2.) We haven't yet determined what keeps us from being a good friend
2.) How has a girlfriend now/in the past challenged you to be better?
