The Importance Of Female Friendships | A Love Letter To My Girls

I’m in such a lucky position as I have the best women in my life right now.

It seems that the past few years of my life have been dedicated to women and the amazing relationships we can have together – and I couldn’t be more grateful.

Friends are important at any time, but especially right now when the world is on fire I feel so lucky to have incredibly supportive people to fall back on.

As someone who dealt with some bad mental health issues a couple of years ago, I know how lonely and isolated you can feel. Even if you are surrounded by people, I get that you can often feel as though no one really cares and there’s no one really out there for you.

Not only is my mental health in a much better place now (again, another thing I’m incredibly grateful for!) but I’ve been making friends and working on relationships a lot over the past year or so which has really paid off.

GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS

Having a great range of women around you is such an important thing to have as a woman.

A group of girls who all have different backgrounds, interests and personalities but just get it – no matter what ‘it’ may be at the time. I feel like this is something I’ve waited my whole life for and I’m so glad that I’ve got it while I’m still young.

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always had good friends. My best friend has been with me since we were practically toddlers and I can count on her for anything, so I’ve had a good taste of what good female friendships can do for you before now.

However, entering my mid-twenties with an extensive variety of female friendships has been so important to me and I honestly don’t know who I’d be without any of these girls.

From meeting at primary school; connecting at university; friends of friends; going from a follower to a friend; getting matching tattoos; having the same interests; sharing sex stories; to getting really deep and personal – I’m so lucky to be able to have that I’ve experienced it all.

I have genuinely some of the best women in the world around me right now.

Having people in your life that just get you and connect with you on a deep level is super important. It does amazing things for your confidence, self-esteem, and overall personality.

The women I have in my life are people I look up to, people I want to be more like, and people I can learn from. They’re all the most beautiful people you’ll ever see and I sometimes get so overwhelmed that they choose to hang out with me.

TELL PEOPLE YOU LOVE THEM

Things are really hard right now and it doesn’t look like it’s going to get easier any time soon.

But having people around you that you can connect with, reach out to and have a laugh with is super important. In fact, it can be life-saving.

I really hope that you have someone in your life right now who lights you up. I think we all have more support than we realise, and this is just one of the moment’s where I’ve realised it for myself so I’m filled with gratitude.

Making friends can be hard, I get it, but it’s so worth it and I truly believe there is someone out there for everyone.

Friendships are just as important as romantic relationships, in my opinion.  In fact, I’ve found female friendships to be some of the most loving and romantic relationships I’ve ever had!

I love all of my girls – all of the amazing women – who are in my life in some capacity right now.

Thank you for inspiring me, for making me laugh, and for helping me like myself.


Please, make sure to reach out to your friends and tell them how much they mean to you right now. We need this kind of message now more than ever.

Keep making plans, keep reaching out to people, and keep connected.

If you feel like you don’t have any friends right now, come connect with me on Instagram. I’d love to chat to you and make friends!

Stay safe and speak soon,

Rachael.
