Female Friendships: The positive perspective

I'm gonna be honest...this post was originally gonna be very negative. I was going to talk about how difficult it is to have sincere relationships with other females. We've all either heard it or said it...females are catty, messy, and do nothing but gossip and tear each other down. I'll even step out and say that it's true. I have had a hard time with female relationships because just when I thought I could confide in one I find out she spread what I said like gossip.  Or they have turned on me for whatever reason. In high school there was a girl that every single year we started out good, then she turned and started spreading rumors about me that weren't true to try to get everyone else to turn on me as well. It was ridiculous! I've found it really hard to trust other women because many times when you reach out for help you come out with a knife in your back.

But! Enough on that. I decided that instead of being negative about it I am going to use this post to celebrate the good friendships that I have and cherish with other women. Despite the women who have been not so great I have actually been blessed with a few that have been amazing. This doesn't mean that we haven't had our issues (most of these women I have actually known since elementary school so issues were bound to happen) but we have been able to overcome those different issues and they have been great enhancements in my life. All of the pictures included in this post are of my personal friends that I love and cherish. I may not speak specifically about every single one but them being included is my acknowledgment of them.

I'm not doing these in any particular order but I have to talk about my sisters first (they're kinda spoiled lol).

My sisters and I have not always gotten along. Surprise, surprise, right? LOL. If you saw us today you probably wouldn't guess it because we are so close now. People always told us that we would be best friends when we got older and we disputed them all the way. But look at us now. Inseparable. We still fight from time to time but I love how our bond has grown.

And, of course, cousins are our first friends!
