I call this my”tribe”.
These are the people you surround yourself with. The people that make you feel good about yourself, support you, make you laugh, are there to console you when you cry. There to slap a bitch when she is flirting with your man (or woman), there to offer guidance, there to help raise your children (it takes a village), there for everything. These are your people. Your choice, and those bonds you have with them can be tighter than any bond you have with your Bloodline.
Members of your tribe come from anywhere. They could be childhood friends, college friends, work friends, or even your cousin’s best friends older sister’s ex boss. I am in awe of the kind, compassionate women that have come into my life and remained a staple. Grateful is a great way to express my feelings towards these people in my life. They all bring a certain aspect that makes your life vivid and bright. The great thing about this is you can choose your frienamily.
