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.

1A. This is not to say women aren’t bitches or toxic or competitive sometimes but rather to say that these are not defining…

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.
