One thing that most of us strong women have in common is that we’re fairly independent. Don’t get me wrong – being independent is great and all, but there comes a time when you need others. You can only get so far alone. It’s especially important to have a community of like minded women, who have your back. I like to call it a girl posse. Here are three reasons why every strong woman needs a girl posse:
I come from a pretty big family. I have six brothers, but only two sisters. While I love all my siblings, there’s nothing quite like the bond I have with my sisters. It’s magic. There’s pretty much nothing that we wouldn’t do for each other. Yes, we get on each others’ nerves at times and we fight, but we always come back together. Always. The best friendships are like a sisterhood – real, genuine and enduring. No, they’re not perfect, but that’s usually because they’ve enduring many hardships and weathered many storms.
No matter how strong you are, there comes a time when we all need someone else to lean on, even the most independent of us. We all need people who have our back when the going gets tough. That said, as a woman, there’s nothing quite like having a group of fierce women who have your back and are there for you when you need them. Why? Because nine times out of ten, they’ve been where you are, understand how you feel and know what you’re going through and how to navigate it.
3. There’s Strength In Numbers:
There’s a saying – “One woman can make a difference, but together we can rock the world.” That’s especially true when that group of women is strong and determined. Seriously, there’s nothing like it. Get a group of women like this together and you can accomplish anything.
