7 Types of Friends Every Woman Should Have

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray. ~Proverbs 12:26

I have always been blessed to be surrounded by some amazing friends in my life. Yes, as the seasons of life change, some have come and gone; some by choice and some by force. But one thing is for certain: we all need a good girlfriend (or two or many) in our lives. There are just some conversations and places that are meant for girlfriends and not necessarily for our significant others. I know that if I have a crisis or need a good ladies’ night out, I will never be without a friend to reach out to.

So even if we don’t hang out as much as I’d like,  I love my girls to death, and there is nothing like their friendship.

Here are 7 types of friends I’m so blessed to have, and think every woman should have too:

The Counselor

This is the one that gives the best advice. She’s been there and done just about everything. For some reason you are comfortable discussing your most private thoughts with her that you wouldn’t dare share with anyone else.  She’s the level headed one who you can vent to about anything and she will not judge you. You feel so much better after your conversations with her. 

The Spiritual One

This is the one you can count on any time of day for a good word or prayer on your behalf. She’s the one that can feed the word to you and give you a bible verse to read that will help you in any situation. She’s your spiritual sister that keeps you on your toes, and empowers you to be still and listen. 

The Supporter

She’s the one, who no matter what you’re doing, you know you can call her and she will be excited for you. She’s one of your biggest cheerleaders. Whether it’s starting a new business or writing a book… Whatever it is, she is going to cheer you on like no one else will. But she genuinely loves and supports everything that you do.

The Funny One

This is the one that can make you laugh under any circumstance and about any situation. You know that when you are in need of a good laugh, you already have this friend on speed dial ready to go. She’s the one that everyone loves to be around and the life of any party because of her sense of humor. It’s hard for anyone to hate her. 

The Blunt One

This is the one that will tell you like it is, even when you don’t want to hear the truth. But she’ll tell you in a loving, sisterly kind of way ( and sometimes, she’ll just give it to you with no filter because the situation calls for it). This is the one that when everyone else is walking on eggshells around you (to avoid hurting your feelings), she’ll tell you exactly how she feels, take it or leave it.

The Motivator

This is the one that motivates you to reach newer heights. She’s the one you see handling her business like a boss, and you are steady taking notes of her every move. She compels you to dig deeper and go after what you really want in life. She’s the one that inspires you to dust off your vision board and get back on track.

The Sensible One

This is the one you call when you want to do something you know you shouldn’t be doing. She’ll listen to your problems and talk you off the ledge. She’ll give you a different, more calm point of view for just about every situation (especially if it means keeping you out of trouble).
