If you have recently gone through a breakup or having some usual but terrifying existential crisis, all you need to do is pack your bags and go out for an all-girls trip. There are some specific things which can only be done when one is with her girlfriends. Still not convinced? Read on to find more:
1.You can be awfully silly around them– When you are with your best girlfriends, you don’t have to worry about random judgements from guy friends/boyfriends for being goofy. You can literally do whatever you want to and no one will ask you to behave yourself (as parents and most boyfriends do). Going on adventurous hikes, huddling around campfires and gossiping about crazy ex-boyfriends are some of the most entertaining things one can ever experience (as Sia has rightly said that one doesn’t need dollar bills to have fun)!
2.Total vulnerability– You won’t have to apply makeup or take a shower or shave your legs if you don’t feel like doing so. If you have recently gained some weight and feel totally insecure about it, just calm down! You are with your girlfriends and they know how real the struggle to make oneself look perfect is! No one will judge you, let it all hang out. Want to cry about failing in a couple of papers on your last semester or why you got fired? Pour a glass of wine, hug a tree and go for it. Your girlfriends are much better counsellors than the ones you paid for consulting.
3.Brutal honesty– Does your boyfriend call you crazy for being sad when his mom puts you down? Even when you are madly-in-love your brain tries to tell you otherwise, your gal pals will reassure you that this is so not okay. The best time to discuss these stuff is when you are on a cozy vacation with your girlfriends. No relationship is perfect, but the one you have with your girlfriends is divine. They are extremely protective of you and love you infinitely. They know how you should be treated and will stand up for you when necessary. At the end of the trip, you will notice how magically they vanquished your anxieties and made you feel better about yourself.
4.Reconnection– Have you ever talked about eating ridiculously expensive food in a swimsuit and that didn’t happen because you guys got busy with each others’ lives? Well, now is the time to do it as the night is still young. Adulthood is unbearable and it’s really hard to be a 12-year-old stuck in the body of a 25-year-old. The only way you can go back, temporarily, to your crazy, young and weird self is by going out on a vacation to some exotic location with your gal pals. Dressing up and clicking selfies together and borrowing each other’s clothes need to be redone as you badly miss your hostel life. Also, you do need to achieve all your ‘gang goals’ that was made on your last sleepover, years back! So what are you waiting for?
5.You are not alone– You are not the only person who is afraid of the dark or have insecurities about armpit hair! When you are chatting from inside your sleeping bags, you will realize that everyone faces the same stuff. Solidarity is empowering and will give a boost to your confidence. As long as your gal pals are all on the same page, you will enjoy the sensation of being the boss of your own destiny instead of trying to conform to someone else’s expectations. These trips also build humility, self-reliance, and stamina and make you a better person altogether.
The long, garrulous conversations on a girls’ trip can never be replaced, and the laughter and bonding through discomfort are deeper than anything one can ever achieve. The girlfriends who sweat, camp and learn new things together, stay together for the rest of their lives. So, call your girls and plan a trip ASAP to make some more happy memories. Cheers!
