Ladies, it’s time for some real talk. Today is National Girlfriend Day, an annual event that rolls around on the 1st of August.

Romantic partners will come and go. Jobs are won and lost. But no matter what happens, your girls will be there in a crunch.  It’s a time to honour your “ride or die” crew of homegirls! So, why do we love our girlfriends so much? Because they’re like sisters but without any of the growing-up baggage. Plus, when times are tough, your girls will let you vent and when you’re done; they will offer up the support you need to get through.

This year on National Girlfriend Day, its tough during this pandemic so what we suggest is plan a zoom party with drinks and snacks and round up all the girls! Perhaps theres a new crush to discuss or just some good old skinner, theres nothing better than your circle of sisterhood girls.

Gal pals are always there for each other and have a history of fighting against the tide to achieve great things together. Make sure you take some time out on National Girlfriend Day to let your girlfriends know how much you appreciate them. Message them or call them today and let them know how special they are to you!

Showing thankfulness and gratitude can make your friend feel special and keep your relationship close. Being grateful for the good friends in your life can help you more easily identify the toxic friendships that pop up here and there as well. When you surround yourself with good people and make an effort to recognise their positive contribution to your life, you’ll be less taken in by people who don’t have your best interests at heart.
