I have women in my life who I consider close friends that I haven’t seen or spoken to in months. That doesn’t make us bad friends, that makes us grown ass women with responsibilities. I don’t have to speak to you every day to be a good friend. I don’t have to see you every week to be a good friend. As long as we show up for each other during the good and bad times, that’s all that matters.

If you’re truly adulting and handling your responsibilities, how do you even have time to attach yourself at the hip to someone? People will talk about independence in a marriage, you need to give your husband space! But then call you a bad friend because of your independence in a friendship.

Strong independent women recognize and respect strong independent women. We respect each other’s time, needs, and desires. And that’s what keeps us close friends even when we are far apart.

Author:Miss Metropolitan Junkie

Raised in the Bronx; spending the majority of my days in the Midtown section of Manhattan, I have a fabulous addiction to life in New York City. I'm a lifestyle writer and social blogger. I enjoy traveling and photographing foods, landscapes, and people in their natural element. I also enjoy attending parades and street festivals in New York City; capturing the spirit and positive energy on video and in photographs. I style people's lives by offering them tips on fashion, food & wine, dining & entertaining, arts & culture, and more!
