6 Common Woes of Young Women

6 Common Woes of Young Women | Positively Smitten

Every woman needs a girlfriend or two, or three. It’s often the women in our lives whose support we crave and whose conversation feeds our soul. With our ‘gal pals’ we can spend an afternoon sharing stories about our families over pizza and 10 minutes on the phone on a Tuesday night talking about all the things we have to get done this week; we can email each other about the lines that are starting to show on our faces and ask if it’s normal; and sit side-by-side on a couch talking about life.

Female friendships are magical like this. We cover the exciting, the boring, the hard, the scary, the silly, the unpleasant, and the awesome parts of our lives. No matter how far away my friends are, or how frequently we talk, or how much we really do or don’t have in common, my friends and I share the same issues and woes. If you’re a young woman (twenty- or thirty-something) reading this, you might recognize a thing or two on the list below that you and your friends worry or wonder about. In no particular order, here are six common woes of young women.
