How to Be A Great Girlfriend [To Your Man... And Your Girls]

By: Timoshanae Wellmaker

When thinking about living your best life, let’s not forget about being your best. Live your best life by being your best holistically, because living your best life shouldn’t just be about mastering your posing techniques for your followers. How is your breath? Are you living free? How are you as a girlfriend, to your friends and your partner? 

The answers to the last question might be just as important as your travel goals, shopping sprees and cute brunch dates. If you aren’t being a pretty person to other people, we’ve got some work to do.  

One of the most important things we can do in our relationships is dropping the old golden rule-treat others as you would like to be treated. That’s actually quite selfish. Instead, treat others as they would like to be treated. Fr example, if you’ve got a friend that is a bit on the timid side when it comes to hearing the truth, to put it nicely, then as her friend your job is to take that into consideration. That doesn’t mean walk on eggshells with her, but at the same time don’t do more damage simply because you’re being brutally honest every time. 

Another thing is to do more out of love. Speak out of love, act out of love, come to decisions out of love. The truth is that you should only act from a place of love, especially with people you claim to care about. When you act from love and have a good heart when doing things, your relationships tend to be open to a little more growth than ones who are often hit by anger and spite. 

Try your best to be there. Your friends need your support. Your man wants your support. Even when they don’t tell you or ask you to be there, there’s almost nothing like getting that “I’m proud of you” from someone you love. Try often to let them know you see them, you appreciate them and you support them. 

Digging even deeper into simply being there- be present. Don’t just make time, but think about how you spend your time together. While no relationship needs 24/7 time together, make sure that the time you do spend together is worth something. In simpler terms- put your phone down every now and then!

Overall, you really need to care about being a good girlfriend to the people you are that to. Communicate often in terms of what is going well with the relationship, what needs to be improved on for the future and what makes each of your hearts happy. Make sure that you are creating relationships that feel safe, free and healthy for everyone involved in it and you are for sure to be on the road to living your best life.
