In the words of Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and The City - “Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with”. The older we get, the more we understand what she actually meant. Believe me when I say it because year after year, my girlfriends actually became my salvation! They yell at me for my stupidities but still stick by me no matter how many times I make the same mistake. This is why they’re so special. Here’s 12 reasons to go hug the awesome women in your life right now - just in case you don’t have any!
1. They are always there for you no matter what!
Even for 3 AM panic calls!
2. They will hate the guys who made you cry even more than you do.
And will never quite approve of them again!
3. If you’re running out of clothes, you have their wardrobe to raid!
Your clothes + my clothes = our clothes!
4. They are the only ones you can work long distance out with!
Because you always catch up where you left off!
5. They are always around to clean the mess up…
…whether it’s that horrible party you never should’ve hosted or the emotional ‘crying in a tub’ kinda days, they are around when everyone else leaves!
6. They believe in you especially when you don’t!
Which is why they will always be your knight in shining armour.
7. They get down to tough love when required…
It’s not always rainbows and sunshine. Your gang will tell you when you are being stupid and annoying more brutally than anyone else can!
8. They know about your big and small fears.
And they fight them with you!
9. Sleepover with them is like therapy!
Who needs a doctor’s couch when you’ve got your bestie’s lap, right?
10. They see through your excuses…
...so if you’re planning to pull the ‘I can’t work because I did not sleep for 10 hours last night!’, think twice! Because they will be quick to ask you to shut up and get down to it!
11. They will be your date on a single valentine’s night!
All we need is lo...nah, best friends!
12. They won’t judge you even for that hole in your underwear!
In fact, they will laugh and say how they have a similar looking hole in theirs!
So, what are you waiting for? Call them right now and tell them how much you love ‘em!
