Making Friends As An Adult!

Are you at a point in your life where you are searching to connect and befriend women who are positive and have similar interest? Have you moved away from sisterfriends and family and feel lonely? Don’t fret! Today I am talking about the ways I went about finding friends as an adult!

When I was younger, I desired to have a small group of girlfriends who I could trust with all my secrets and had my back no matter what. I used to watch The Disney Channel and Nickelodeon and think it was so cool how those girls had besties. Well, the older I got the more I realized the length of the friendship is far less important than the quality of the relationship!

I grew to appreciate how fun and refreshing it is to befriend new people! Throughout the course of my life, I have had to disconnect with new women either because they were not nice people, I moved away for college, we grew apart, and most recently got married and move 12 hours away from home.

It can be very uncomfortable to put yourself out there to get to know a new set of people, but the rewards outweigh the awkwardness! God created us to be in community with one another. It IS possible for you to have mutually beneficial relationships with other women. I too have had very unsavory women in my life in which I had to cut loose, but I will never let that deter me from keeping an open heart and connecting with women that lift me up and hold me accountable!

I encourage you to look for new events in your area that spark your interest AND GO! Pray that God sends women in your life where common respect and trust is shared! I am extending an open invitation to you to come to MY event, Curls and Kicks Fitness Party. We are going to workout, eat, and have a great time together. In the comment section below write your tips for meeting new friends!

    I’m really glad you addressed this, such a common theme among women in their late 20’s and early 30’s. It seems like we go thru this awkward stage after college and once everyone starts getting married, having babies, and moving away. This topic has been on my heart lately as I rebuild my circle and look for women that are headed in the same direction as me.

    My favorite line of this whole post is: Well, the older I got the more I realized the length of the friendship is far less important than the quality of the relationship. (This is a tweetable!!)

    I’m not in the area of your event but would def come if it were closer! Wishing you much success with the event and for all the ladies to make connections and new friendships!

      I didn’t realize how many women felt like this OR were in the same position until I made this video/post. I pray that God will send women into your life that will help nurture and grow you. I pray that he heightens your discernment so you can stay clear of the doubters and pseudo friends!

      What area are you in? I plan on expanding the event to other cities!

      P.S. Per your comment, I will be making that line a tweetable! 🙂
