The Power of Friendship: Why You Need a Supportive Network in Your Life

Women are powerful and resilient, but we can’t do it alone. We need to build and maintain a strong and supportive network of friends to help us weather life’s storms. Here’s why having a strong support system is so important.


The Benefits of Friendship

Friendships bring a variety of benefits to our lives. Friends can provide emotional support when times are tough, help us make big decisions, cheer us on through the difficult moments, and celebrate with us during the good ones.

Having someone who you can rely on in both good times and bad is invaluable. And having multiple friends gives you different perspectives which can be incredibly helpful when making decisions or navigating life choices.

Friends also hold us accountable to ourselves and our goals. They know our dreams and aspirations better than anyone else, so they won’t hesitate to call us out if we start getting off track or slacking off on our commitments. It’s easier to stay motivated when you have people who believe in you and your success.

A great way to expand your friendship circle is by joining meetup groups or attending local events that relate to your interests or hobbies. This makes it easy for you to find like-minded individuals who share your passions, as well as giving you an opportunity to practice socializing with others outside of your everyday routine. This can be especially beneficial for those who feel shy about socializing or struggle with depression or anxiety as it’s a low-pressure way of meeting new people without feeling overwhelmed or intimidated by the prospect of talking to strangers.

Building Healthy Relationships

When building relationships with other women, it’s important that we approach them from a place of respect and understanding rather than competition or comparison.

It’s easy for jealousy or envy to creep into relationships between women, but these feelings have no place in friendships if they are going to thrive over time. Instead, focus on developing relationships based on trust and shared interests rather than what each person has that the other doesn't have—or worse yet—what one person perceives the other has that they don't have themselves.


The power of friendship should never be underestimated; having supportive friends in your life can make all the difference between feeling alone versus feeling loved and appreciated during difficult times in life. So take some time today for yourself; join a meetup group, attend local events related to something you love doing, join forces with other female entrepreneurs...whatever it is that resonates with you! Take this opportunity to build strong connections with amazing women who will lift each other up!
