Are you my SISTAH?

It seems like finding good friends is becoming harder than finding a good pair of shoes. YES, a pair of shoes- Don't act like you can't relate. Sistahs, do you have ONE pair of heels that you can wear for HOURS (& Hours) at the club without even feeling a hint of stress on your itty bitty pinky toe? So comfy you could dance till 6 AM and not have to tap your homegirl like "Oh hell no girl, I have got to sit down". Be it as it may, its seeming that its becoming harder and harder to find female friends that are down for the cause. The one you can call at 2:01 am like "girl, this dude cannot give head", or at 5:57 am with nothing but tears because of the constant lies he says so well you would have put money it was the truth, or better yet a friend that will (accidently) spill a drink on a female for looking at your [Team] wrong at the club. lol (i promise you we dont do this ::wink::) But, where are those females at, those friends!

Like most women I am guilty of keeping my friendships to a minimum. And Lord knows I definetly have issues keeping the few that I actually have (don't worry I'm working on it, well kind of) But does anyone ever wonder for one minute why women refuse to befriend someone who anatomically, characteristically, and mentally are so similar to themselves? I know we've all heard the common excuses: women are too caty, too jealous, too competitive, always trying to steal someone's man, or better yet that we just cause too much damn drama. But I believe its deeper than the lies we divulge so frequently. Our inability to befriend our fellow sisters is rooted in FEAR. The fear of confiding in someone, the fear in actually relating to someone, the fear of making oneself vulnerable, so vunerable to the point where your SISTAH knows more about you than you know about yourself; and it is this fear that hinders us from establishing relationships that can potentially last a life time. Friends give us the courage to lift the blinds on our hearts and show what we generally keep hidden from the rest of the world.

I'm a little apprehensive, but I think I'm ready to lift my blinds. SISTAHS, I suggest you do the same.

Yours Truly,
