Ms. Libby Oberlin Says There are Problems Inherent With the Term, “Best Friend.”
In this video Ms. Libby Oberlin talks about the unnecessary stress and pressure that comes with being called a best friend. That it’s difficult to live up to the expectation of being best at anything.
Enjoying the status of being someone’s best friend only to find your friend starting to spend more and more time with other people and less time with yourself can be a mental hurdle to get over. You might find yourself becoming jealous, blue or even skeptical about your best friend status.
She goes on to say that ‘true friend’ is a better title to use than ‘best friend’ and states the reasons why.
Ms. Libby Oberlin is involved with the Girls Leadership Institute. It’s a 10 year old nation wide program that teaches girls the skills to know who they are, what they believe, how to express it and empower them to make a change in their world. They work with girls, parents, caregivers, and educators to ensure lasting impact.
