Friendships can be so tricky, and yet they are something that we yearn for in our lives. Women can be “catty,” but yet once you really connect with someone and have an incredible friendship with another woman you do not want to let that go. Lisa-Jo Baker has shared her thoughts and encouragement on this subject in her new book, “Never Unfriended: the secret to finding and keeping lasting friendships.” This is such an incredible book and one that really made me think about what I want in friendships and what I have had and currently have in friendships. Lisa-Jo shares so many great lines in this book, and one that really stood out is: “Maybe the most intimate, radical thing we can do for our friends is to show up.” This is the whole purpose of friendships – to be present, to be someone who can be counted on to share the good and the bad with, someone to be a sounding board, someone to laugh with, someone to cry with, someone to just be there when needed. This is only one of the many, many insights that Lisa-Jo shares with the reader. I highly recommend this for women whom are seeking to build their relationships and have friendships to last.
