Friendship is important. You learned it in kindergarten and now there’s evidence to suggest it’s a key factor in leading a healthy life. Yet, many women find their social circle sparsely populated. Make sure you avoid these missteps that stave off your soul sisters.

We need others to laugh and lament with and we crave the energizing connections that allow us to share our inner lives, fill the emotional gaps in our marriages and feel less alone when life gets tough. Our very survival depends on deep friendships with other women: Study after study shows that women with a close circle of friends live longer, happier and healthier lives.
