Friendship and Women

I read about a study done at UCLA that suggests that women respond to stress with a cascade of brain chemicals that cause us to make and maintain friendships with other women. Women have known this all along but it was interesting to learn that researchers left out women when performing their studies on stress. Now they have learned that women respond to stress so much differently than men.

I believe that we are so much more powerful when we support each other. I am so grateful for all the wonderful, powerful, amazing women in my life!
