Spring Into Action! 5 ways to Create, Establish, and Grow Lifelong Friendships!
If you have been longing for friends that understand you, support you, and empower you to be all you were created to be, then this post is just for you. I have worked with so many women who struggle to sustain relationships due to past experience, unhealthy beliefs, and walls that have been built up over time. However, Beauties, I am here to help you, because I know how essential it is to surround ourselves with women who support, love, empower and pray on our behalf.

The REASON I stress being wise about the friendships you want to pursue, is because friendships take time, effort and love. We are only allotted a certain amount of time per day so it’s literally impossible to be friends with everyone, so choose wisely, and be the friend that you always desired to have.
4. Change the way you talk about yourself and your friends, only say the good, do not gossip, do not complain but instead think about all the good, and be thankful for your true friends. If YOU get your feelings hurt, go to your friends and talk with them in person, do not discuss the issue with someone else or gossip about the situation.
