In this age of social media, it seems almost the norm to have a huge circle of friends. If you’re under 100 “friends”, you almost don’t count. However, reality is different. When it comes to real friendships – the people you can call when you’re completely out of it – this group gets a lot smaller. And that’s not bad at all! According to life coach, Bella Zanesco, we only need 6 girlfriends.
1. The adventurer
This friend is a fearless daredevil. Change is her middle name. She will encourage you to take a leap into the deep. Not a nice job? Resign! Have you been treated badly by your partner for years? She’ll help you get out of this negative spiral.
2. The clown
You’ll never have a boring moment with this girlfriend. She’s always in for a joke. With her, you’re just little girls giggling about the smallest things. She will make you laugh when you don’t like it anymore and, if necessary, she will drag you out of the house to do nice things.
3. The empathic
The empaat is a loving friend. She feels good about what you need and responds easily. Do you need a listening ear? She’ll listen to you quietly without bombarding you with well-intentioned advice. This friend is very trustworthy and will be the first to come to you if everything becomes too much for you.
4. The muse
This woman always provides the necessary inspiration in your life. When you’ve talked to her, your head is full of new ideas. She inspires you and makes you think about your place in the world. Are you happy with where you are now? No? What can you do about it?
5. The rival
You have the most fun discussions with her. She challenges you to think about the most diverse topics. Because she loves to discuss so much, it can sometimes clash with other challenging types, but always remember that she is only trying to help you.
6. The heart friend
This girlfriend has always been thick and thin for you. No matter how many times you fall, she will always be there to help you get back up and comfort you.
