So last night my poor husband got an emotional break down from "Im in a quiet mood Im going to cry if you touch me or look at me the wrong way," ME! I tried so hard to take a strong, bold stance in the conversation but really it boiled down to me just needing to talk about it. Needing to cry about it. Needing someone who relates to encourage me about it. Thats where women need women.
I have talked to numerous women who crave to be relational with women. They are lacking the deep, meaningful friendships in their lives and are part empty because of it. Im talking the friendships where you never run out of a thing to talk about....but IF you do just sitting and being silent with them is quite fulfilling. The ones that allow you the security to (as stated by Humble Pie) take off your make up and get in your pj's! The ones that are encouraging and make you better as a person.
Why are these relationships lacking in our lives? Are we too inferior of eachother to let down our wall?
I have a few women who complete this description of meaningful friendships in my life and I am so very thankful for them and blessed to be a part of their lives. However, they dont live near me, they are busy with life, children, work and we hardly ever get the time to just get in our pj's and talk. We mine as well get out our planner and schedule phone dates =)...which happens sometimes!
Women need women. Our husbands aren't designed to fulfill every part of our lives. That is why God puts different people(women) in each of our lives....to fulfill that need, whatever it may be.
...Maybe just to laugh!
