This month we asked some ladies about their thoughts on friendship. Check out what Randi and Amanda had to say.
What is your favorite thing about your female friendships?
Randi | The support of other empowered, supercharged chicks who are working together to make the world a better place and the fire that stems from togetherness.
Amanda | I love how I can talk to them about anything that is going on in my life and since we both have the same viewpoints it's easy for me to communicate with them. Sometimes guys just don't understand the actual ordeals that we go through on a daily basis, and with a female friend you are able to express your emotions and have an understanding response back.
What is one of the hardest things about adult friendships?
Randi | Everyone is busy and trying to find their way in the world. Paths don't tend to cross as much and the stress of daily lives keeps us from enjoying the moment and making concrete plans.
Amanda | The hardest thing about adult friendships is that there is always a pressure to have a mature manner about things and that we must always have things together. The younger your are, the less pressure there is for you to have your shit together. So in adult relationships, it is hard to show yourself breaking down at some moments, even though it happens to all of us.
What's something that you can do with almost any one of your friends?
Randi | Drink, relax, and be silly!
Amanda | I am able to laugh with all of my friends. It is my goal in life to spread love and happiness wherever I go, and I do that through laughter and making others laugh. I can crack a joke at any moment.
What is something that is on your friendship bucket list?
Randi | To travel to foreign lands and relax in beautiful places.
Amanda | I personally do not set any goals when it comes to friends. I feel that if you set expectations it will ruin the small moments that make your friendship great. If you set expectations, they will never be met, which will make you assume that the friendship is rubbish. But in all honesty it's those small moments of laughter where you might pee your pants or the moments where you feel your happiest with a person that make a friendship great.
Why do you think that having friends in important?
Randi | Because friends shape us into more confident and open-minded people. They make us feel love, happiness, and stick with us in the good and bad times.
Amanda | I think that having friends is absolutely important due to the fact that we are very social animals. We must have friends in order for us to survive everyday life. We use our friends for guidance and to help us create lasting memories that help form us into the people that we are today.
