Love and Relationships My Life After 30 Self Urban Aristocrats

FRIENDSHIPS WHILE ADULTING

I don't have to speak to you every day to be a good friend.

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.
