Friendship is one of the most important aspects of life. It provides us with a sense of belonging, comfort and support. For women, having a strong network of supportive friends and family can be a powerful source of strength and resilience.
Throughout history, women have achieved success and progress by being part of a larger community. Women have been able to come together and support each other in whatever shared stand for change they may have. This sense of community has been a key factor in the success of women’s movements and continues to be an important part of their journey to being more expansive and living life to the fullest.
Friendship provides us with a sense of security and acceptance. When we have a circle of trusted friends, we can be sure that we can rely on them for support and encouragement. Having a strong support network can help us to stay motivated and driven in our pursuits, no matter what obstacles we may encounter.
This is especially true when we’re having food, weight, and body issues. So many things can pull us back in our goal of a big transformation happening in our life. And having a strong support group will help us stay connected to where we’re headed and inspires us to live our best life.
In this episode, Leslie shares with us great tips in finding your true match of friendships allowing you to connect and engage with people and maintain meaningful relationships that can act as a source of strength and support.
