Who Needs A Therapist When You Have Awesome Friends

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?

  1. Ashley: I’m with you. My ex-boyfriend used to always tell me, “SATC is a fictional show. Friends like that don’t exist.” I’m not saying we don’t all love our friends, but the fact of the matter is real people just don’t have the time to sit aorund all day eating at a diner in the city and going out to amazingly fabulous parties all the time. Sad, but true. Well, I’m in NYC if you ever decide to visit!
