When female friendships run deep, they can be some of the most rewarding, satisfying relationships a woman will ever have. And sisterhood takes friendship to a whole new level. It is the notion that instead of just having one or two close friends and/or a small posse of friends and then distrusting everyone else, you can still have your closest friends and posse and also join a larger tribe of women whom you can rely on and trust implicitly as a form of support. This support can be like a cradle to nurture you as a mother. The support is like a giant safety net to catch you when you feel like you may fall into the abyss of isolation, depression, or anger.
