1. Make them your best friends. This is done by spending time together regularly. Share your secrets. Shed your tears while communicating your hurts and heartbreaks.
Pray together when things weigh heavy on your heart.
2. Act like teenagers again. Be goofy. Get together and let yourself loose. Do not be afraid of judgement, just be you.
For some of us this takes a bit longer (like me) but it's so worth it!
3. Hug Often: Another hard one for me since I'm not a hugger but these girls have been trying to make me one since I was 14 years old.
It's starting to feel more natural. :)
