Through Thick and Thin: a Friendship Motivation for Tough Times
Sometimes we take friendship for granted, but it's during hard times that we realize how important those friendships are in keeping us afloat. This is especially true for female friends. Some men may not fully understand the unique dynamics of female friendships, but the truth is that they are unique.
It is a well-known fact that women tend to be more emotionally driven than men, which influences the way we approach our friendships. Our girlfriends often become our safe space where we can freely vent, cry, complain, and simply feel without fear of judgment.
These friendships provide an outlet for expressing our deepest emotions and seeking support during challenging times. Whether it's sharing personal struggles or seeking advice, our girlfriends play a crucial role in providing comfort and understanding.
In these relationships, vulnerability is embraced, and emotional connection is valued. Through these bonds, we find solace, empathy, and validation. Our girlfriends offer a unique perspective and emotional support that enriches our lives in countless ways.
How are Close Female Friendships Beneficial According to Science
It turns out that having close female friends can have a positive impact on our overall health. The reason behind this is that women tend to be more open and willing to discuss their feelings, which in turn allows us to process our emotions better and keep stressors or triggers at bay which lowers our levels of cortisol (the stress hormone) and increases serotonin (the happy hormone).
Our "Through Thick and Thin" necklace is inspired by the friendships that support us through the toughest times in our lives. It’s a celebration of those friends that are there in the good and bad times, the friends that are our safe space, the friends that hold our hands through a breakup, through a loss, and stand next to us on our greatest day. To some, it may seem like a simple piece of jewelry but to us, it symbolizes the unwavering support we receive from our closest friends. The name itself perfectly captures the essence of those friendships that stick with us through all the ups and downs life throws at us. It’s our way to honor those friendships.
