Every other Wednesday, we focus The Savvy on relationships. Today, it’s all about friendship. Friendships can be brief and intense or long and easy, but one thing is for sure — women need other women in their lives. Friendships are a key factor to a happy middle age and beyond, and we all need a few good people to turn to. Keeping friendships alive and strong is not only good for our souls, but it’s essential to our well-being, too.
