GIRLS, we have to stick together...

I talk to so many girls each week who are being mistreated by their GIRLFRIENDS!

There is no doubt in my mind that your teen years will be some of the hardest years of your life. But if you can't depend on your girlfriends, who can you turn to when life gets rough?

You owe it to each other to have some guidelines and boundaries for your friendship! It can be a lifelong pact! TRUE friends can stand the test of times, but it is a WORKING relationship that sometimes has to be tweaked to suit the times.

Here are 10 rules for how to be secure in your GIRLFRIENDSHIPS!

1. Support each other - be her biggest cheerleader!
2. Tell her how you feel - in ALL WAYS!
3. NEVER tell her secrets - unless he life depends on it!
4. Help her to stay safe in her thoughts and actions but give her room to be an individual!
5. When she asks for your advice, give her YOUR advice, not what you think she wants to hear.
6. Be there...ALWAYS!
7. Don't choose your BOYFRIEND over your BEST FRIEND!
8. Don't talk about her behind her back. If you have something to say, say it to HER!
9. NEVER EVER date your BFFs ex! EVER!

Your girl friends are your lifeline!

If you have a friend that needs this list, pass it along.

Never let anyone disrespect you verbally, physically or through gossip. If your BFF is doing any of these hurtful things, it is time to redefine what you are looking for in a friend and it is time to reset your boundaries.

Boundaries aren't only for boyfriends!
