Pour Your Heart Out: A Glass of Friendship

If you need more info about Pour Your Heart Out, see THIS post.

But, really, it's anything that YOU consider pouring your heart out.

Be sure to check out some of the links- you will find some amazing stories out there.
Again, just a brief reminder that everyone linking is pouring their hearts out and we should all be respectful in our comments. ;)



 


I don't make friends easily. I've mentioned that in passing a few times. Being the incredibly supportive women(mostly women anyway) that you are, you have given me reasons why you don't believe that.


But, like I told you in this post, I have had problems making female friends. Mostly, it stems from not ever having that sort of clique mentality, where you like or dislike someone based on what a group thinks- instead, I like who I like and dislike who I dislike- all based on my own reasons. In the land of junior high, that didn't fly. And there are those who have never left that mentality behind.


When I make a friend, I'm fiercely loyal. Because those friends mean the world to me. My friend Angie and I have been friends since we were four and I know that I can always count on her and tell her anything. And there's Supah whom I've known since our four year-olds were infants that we pushed in strollers around the zoo as we chased our toddlers- who is one of the most big-hearted and real friends you can find.


And then there are the friends that I've made through blogging. Some that I have had a chance to meet, some that I will meet someday, and some that I probably will never meet....but all feel like real friends. After all, I can tell you things here on my blog that I might have a hard time telling someone IRL. Because I'm so open here- can you imagine sitting down beside someone on a bench at the playground and just spilling all this? I would seem like a crazy person. But, in the blogworld, that is what we do. We share ourselves. I especially love the Pour Your Heart Out posts that you link up because it lets me see more of who you are when you share such personal things. And if you hop around and visit the links, you'll make friends, too.


That sharing we do on blogs...it makes me realize that blog friends are real. And mine are so diverse.  Some whose experiences I relate to and some whose experiences are incredibly different from mine. Yet, we connect.


And, whether I've ever met them IRL or not, I know that I can count on my friends. We get to know each other by reading each other's blogs. We email, tweet, bbm, facebook, etc, as we get to know each other better. And can cry out for help and have that cry be answered. Maybe it's prayers, support, opinions, suggestions, someone to celebrate a victory with us or even just someone to listen.


We need those connections. Our friends are so important.

And that's why I'm so excited to be a part of a very diverse group of bloggers who are working together for the month of September to celebrate National Women's Friendship Month- which is being expanded this year to be International Women's Friendship Month.  The intent of this month is to honor our friendships.


All month long, we will be hosting events, contests, reviews, giveaways, and Twitter parties all in the name of friendship!  You can check out Friends You Love to meet the other bloggers who are a part of putting this event together. We'll be posting more details of our events there in the coming days. I hope that you will participate in some of our upcoming events and celebrate friendship with us!

I also have a hard time making/keeping women friends - but you are right, the blog-friends I have made feel like real connections, which is something I wasn't counting on when I started.
Your Pour Your Heart Out is a huge part of that - thank you. And good luck with Women's Friendship Month - it sounds like a great idea!

In high school I had more guy friends than girl friends. I am not that person who goes up to people and says "Hi! I'm Lourie!" No, I am the person in the corner, legs crossed, arms folded and staring at the floor. Once you get to know me, I open up and never shut up. Haha. I have made many friends in the blog world. I would love to meet them IRL someday!

I hear you, it is tough to make friends IRL. Hell, I lived next door to Tammy for the last four years and we just became friends this past year. I like to joke that I am a hermit and stay inside to avoid contact with all the moms on the block but really I hid because I didn't think that I fit in with them. I'm glad that the kids playing together and going to school together in the neighborhood has pushed me out of my shell. It had been great to get to know them.

I am hoping that FYL will have a similar affect on my blog friendships. As soon as I get caught up review wise I will be focusing more on friendships and less on products. That's what really makes blogging enjoyable!

I try to get myself involved with things my kids do, it's about the only way I connect with other women. Problem is, I usually only click with one maybe two people there. Those don't always work into long term friendships, they may only last as long as that activity lasts.

In the 5+ years I have lived here, I have made 2 friends. The place I lived before for 10+ years, and I left with one lost, but recently re-found friend.

I also mentioned how in 8th grade my health teacher justified giving me a D because I didn't belong to a clique, therefore my emotional health was in jeopardy. He felt it necessary to point that out to students and their families.

I have the same problem making women friends. I have a lot of friends, but none are the kind that you call up and share everything with. My IRL friends are great for a few good laughs,but when it comes to sharing everything and being close, it's just not there. I know it's me, and the guards I put up behind a veil of confidence. Only my hubby knows my insecurities, and the real me. But through blogging I feel like I can be me, and like you said lay it all out there. I love the connection I've made with bloggyland friends!
This is such a cool project. Can't wait to hear more.

By the way, thanks for Pour your Heart Out. In the whole scheme of things this week, it is one of the many pieces that just seemed to fall into place.

It can be really hard to make female friends IRL because too many still have the clique mentality. I agree that it is easier to make friends through the blog world, and it can also make things easier if you do meet these people in real life.

I can relate. I am the same way about friendships. I've never been "clique-y" and didn't care much about having to be popular. Didn't fly in high school for me, either. I tend to have a lot of acquaintances, but only a few, very close friends. But they are the best. Like you, I'm fiercely loyal and they are to me, as well.

But I've found my blog friends to be amazing, too -- more real and transparent than a lot of people I know IRL. I love your blog and value you, my blog friend, because of your genuine heart and willing to be honest. And you are so incredibly supportive. Hope one day we can meet IRL. ;0)

EXCITED about the friends you love event!!!

I've talked before on my blog about friendship. It takes a lot for me to become friends with somebody. And I'm not talking about casual aquaintances, I'm talking about FRIENDS. Once you become a friend of mine I will move mountains for you. My best friend and I have been friends since we were 4 also. I'm sad, because while we've never been in a fight, I feel myself so far away from her. It's not her, it's me. I'm at a different point in my life than her, and hearing about the guys, the partying the clubs... it just GETS OLD! But I know that I will forever be friends with her.

I've been reflecting a lot lately on friends, blog friends, IRL friends and how each one is special in their own way.

And you, Shell, are an amazing blog friend! I'm so happy that I finally found you through the sweet and lovely Chelle :)

I can so relate to how hard it was growing up having "girl"friends. I just couldn't connect with them and had an easier time talking to boys and becoming friends with them. But when I did make friends with a girl I held on tight and would do anything for them. As I do now. If you're my friend I will be true to you. I stand up for my friends.
This is an awesome event you are involved in. I have met so many wonderful people through blogging and have connected with women I would never had just walked up to and said hi to. I cherish those friendships and even if I never meet them IRL I will always keep them close to my heart. I am glad that I found your blog, you're a great friend ad maybe one day we'll meet.

I get it. I don't think I am friends with any of my childhood friends today...I mean in our hearts my bff and I will always be friends, but we rarely talk and haven't seen each other since I was 18. The friends I am making in the blogosphere or even online are proving to be my strongest allies. I can totally relate to your post. I have a BFF in OK I have never met, but I would drop everything in a heartbeat and drive the 18 hours if she needed me. I know she would do the same for me.

I have a hard time making women friends too. I didn't belong to a clique at all in grammar or high school. Like you, I liked who I liked. Which made me the outcast and picked on, even by teachers.

Even as an adult, I find it hard to make friends. I don't have the same background as some of the other Moms I've met. I can't relate to them and they can't relate to me. One person I consider a close friend is someone I met on a message board.

I related so much to what you have shared here. I consider the women in my office to be friends but we are together M - F 8 - 5 and that's it. No outside of work socialization. And then I have one friend where I feel like I have been the one who was constantly trying to keep the friendship moving to a level beyond casual and she kept pulling back. I've finally accepted that. We're still friends but not what I was hoping we would be. Only on my blog have I found the women that I consider my BEST friends. The ones that I can tell anything and they will still love me. That's one of the most precious things about blogging!

I have found that blogging deepens my "in real life" connections because I articulate my thoughts so much better in writing. When they read my thoughts, our connection deepens. It's really been very cool to see my friendships deepen in this way.

Blogger Aging Mommy said...

I find it very hard to make new women friends too and I'd never thought about it the way you describe it but I think definitely in part because I too do not have that clique mentality and like individuals based on who and what they are. A lot of women though do like the group get together scenario and group activities and being defined that way. I cannot function in even a relatively small group of women either.

For the first time in my life, I have no friends in the city that I live in. well except my daughters and my hubby,and I do count them. But I have no women friends, not ones I meet up with. So I am glad to see that I am not the only one that considers my online friends from FB and fellow bloggers as REAL friends. I would most certainly be lost without them.

I have not added my linky to the list cause I have already made a post for the day and it really in my opinion did not count as pouring my heart out...maybe it is, I dunno...but wanted to leave a comment.

Hi there,

This is my first time linking to this meme. I needed to share somethings, so when I found this meme, I joined in as it was appropriate for my post. I've read every person's entry on the list and commented on the majority. Thanks so much for hosting.

I left yours for last. I too, don't make friends easily. Probably from my childhood that was spent in difficult situations with my family. Friendships were hard to form.

As an adult, I have many acquaintances. People I have pleasant conversations with from time to time.

However, I can count the amount of 'friends' I have on my fingers...and I am okay with that. I don't want or need many 'friends'. I'm not willing to share my life story with everyone either. I'm thankful for both groups in my life...I cherish friendships tenderly and appreciate the people that are in my life.

Wonderful post and love the meme.

I am the exact same way. I actually started a bible study group for "young-ish" women in the town I live in to help us all through the things women deal with as well as grow closer to God and closer as friends/acquaintances. I have always been friends with guys. I'm 25 and have 2 girl friends I consider forever friends. One of them is my sister. I hope I can create lasting bonds with more women as I continue to grow and I hope you do too!!

Have a wonderful day!

Love this idea! Found you because I'm participating in The Friendship Circle's Month of Friendship so I saw a note about your blog promoting the concept too! Yay!

Also, wanted to let you all know, if interested, GirlFriendCircles.com actually matches you up in small groups with local women form your area for real conversation at cafes and wine bars! Super awesome way to make new friends with other fabulous women who value friendship! So if you want to expand your circle of friends, be sure to check it out! :)

Best to you,

I'm also a loyal friend.

It's sometimes hard for me to make friends though. I can be quite shy. And I'm told I'm weird.
