Having a therapist is awesome. It’s someone that you literally pay to listen to you bitch and moan. But I think there’s something even better than therapy – and that’s having dessert with your girlfriends. When you get to be a certain age, and have a job, and a boyfriend, (and a blog), things tend to get a little busy. Every once in a while, though, you have get off your lazy ass and hang out with your friends, to blow off steam and bash the guys you’re dating.
Last night I had tiramisu and cappuccino with two of my best friends. I literally felt the weight of the world lifting off of my shoulders as I vented and bitched to them about every aspect of my life. I even enjoyed listening to them do the same – because it just proves that everyone’s life sucks, not just mine.
By the time we were done with the sweets, I had caught them up on the past 3 weeks of my life and I got some juicy info about theirs. I think everyone needs to do this at least once a week. Guys, I assume your “weekly hangout” consists more of watching a sports game and burping but, hey, to each his own. Whatever relieves the stress.
Does hanging with your friends ever feel like a therapy session?
