“Please don’t hurt me! Please don’t hurt me!”
Those words sound like something you would hear straight from a scene in a scary movie! And if you are at all like me, when you get around other women, your subconscious loves to beat you over the head with those words. A lot..
This uneasy feeling comes over you. And it is all because you do not want to put yourself out there, start letting people “in”, and then get hurt.
And that is where that nasty word fear comes into play.
We both like the color pink, dogs, and Cinderella. Poof! We’re best friends!
Remember those days? When making new friends boiled down to a conversation about your favorite color and immediately made you a new “BFF”?
Whatever else about your instant “BFF” you didn’t yet know would come over time. You would learn all about your friend as you rode bikes together, played Barbies or had slumber parties. Besides the basic information, everything else really did not matter.
So when and why does that change?
I had such an open and honest conversation with a good friend of mine last night that got me to thinking about something that is a little uncomfortable, in ways, to talk about.
Friendships. With girls.
And I am speaking to the ladies here.
And before you click away, like this is something that you have “down pat” or you feel like you do not need, maybe this will be a good post to read to reach out to some ladies that you may not know are crying out for relationships. Because it is not easy.
