1. Abandon the cultural myth that all female friendships must be toxic, bitchy or competitive. This myth is like heels and purses—pretty but designed to SLOW women down.

I was going to write something like this recently. Point to add - girls who are good at ‘girl friendships’ admire rather than envy their friends’ sexiness. When you grow up you realize that your boyfriend won’t be like, “Wait a minute, your friend looks better in a tube top than you. I’m jumping ship!” 8th grade guys might think this way but for real that goes away hopefully by the time guys are 16.
