I'm just now getting a group of Bff's. (best friend forever in case you don't know). ♥♥ I usually felt safe talking to maybe one or two friends, but I guess I'm learning to trust a little more. Open up more.
Last night, I went to an Italian restaurant with them. Six of us girls. We're all over 40, but we still call ourselves girls.
I thought about our fun night and came up with some pluses for making bff's:
♥ Bff's help us learn to laugh at ourselves.
♥ Bff's make it feel safe to tell how we REALLY feel.
♥ Bff's never judge us for our sins.
♥ Bff's are honest. They'll tell us when they get a gut-level feeling we're getting off the right path.
♥ Bff's aren't jealous. They always, always, always want the best for us.
♥ Bff's pray for each other.
♥ Bff's remember each others' birthdays. And it doesn't have to be with a present. Sometimes, for me, the best present is just sitting and talking.
♥ Bff's don't blab private stuff.
♥ Sometimes, our Bff's raise us up, and sometimes we lift them. It's give and take.
"A friend loveth at all times." Proverbs 17:17
Any thoughts on Bff's?
