Hi FGB’ers! Would love to hear from you — what makes your group of best girlfriends so special?? Womxn’s Equality Day is right around the corner, and I’ve been thinking a lot about the role womxn-centric spaces and friendships play in how supported and empowered we feel in our lives overall. I’m fortunate to have so many different powerful, nourishing friendships with womxn, but the friend group I’ve chosen to highlight here is one that was formed while we studied abroad in Paris as college students. Studying abroad was my first time leaving my hometown for a sustained period of time totally on my own. I went into it seeing it as an exercise in self-sufficiency, but soon discovered that it didn’t have to be — because I met and made fast friends with these beautiful humans! <3 We’ve done Paris, Luxembourg, Amsterdam, Colombia, New Orleans, Salem, and NYC/LA together. Not only do I admire them as people, but I love knowing that I have access to a group of rad women who value adventuring as much as I do! It’s a really special dynamic to have. Now, tell me about your group of gal pals and what makes your friendship exceptional! ^-^ | Fairygodboss

I met my group of 5 girlfriends in college. We were attached at the hip, so much so that we all moved into a house together and ending up living together for 2 years. Post college, I lived with 3 of them at separate times. We have an unbreakable bond and are truly each others biggest cheerleaders. We've seen each other go through just about everything, and I couldn't be more grateful for each of them!

My group of besties made it to my top tier friend zone by representing (and reminding me of) all the best parts of who I am. My best girlfriend from elementary school knew me before I "glowed up" and to this day, I can still be extremely goofy, chatty and vulnerable around her. I talk often to the bestie I met in high school about all things spiritual — God, meditation, love and light and all that good stuff! And we love exploring the city together, which she moved to after graduating high school in TN. My third best friend, who I met in college, taught me how to dance (believe it or not!), likes to paint like I do and loves exploring new places and ideas with me. Each one of them are completely different, and I feel gratified and grounded when I'm around them.

I met my group of best pals at the coding bootcamp I attend. It’s the most inclusive group I’ve been a part of so far and for the first time, I’m not hesitant to bring my whole unabashed self to the table. They’re so sharp and capable of great things while also knowing when to be soft and supportive.

The thing I appreciate most about my group is they celebrate and encourage who I am, but aren’t afraid to put me in check when I need it!

I love my group of girlfriends! We share vulnerabilities vs. sugarcoating successes. They're an incredible support system in times when I need them most.

My group of girlfriends are so special to me because we all are incredibly driven and successful in their own way. I don't mean to say we're all rich with a lot of money but we're rich with loving our jobs and creating a sense of purpose.

Mine isn't a travel thing but more of a family thing. We all met through family members and we love getting together to do fun things. I think one of the best times we had is when we all went to see "Bad Moms". What a hoot! We are always there for one another. We've all had our ups and downs and we know that we can depend on each other when in need. I love my girl group! <3

I have a similar group of gal pals that I roomed with when I studied abroad in Rome! All four of us could honestly not be more different (and we all came from different places too!), but being on our own in a foreign country and sharing an apartment together, somehow it just worked! I've traveled with them to different countries and states and I always have the best times and have made the best memories with them. As time has gone by, we've definitely talked less and had less visits, but when we do check in or get together (whether it be babies, or weddings, or just a random visit), it's like no time has passed! They are definitely the most unique group of girlfriends I have and I honestly may not have been friends with them otherwise, but I'm so grateful to have them in my life and to hear their perspectives and their life experiences and to get the different kind of support they give me! They have helped shape me into the woman I am today. It's such a special relationship :)
