The Motivator

When you’re depressed, this friend makes you get your ass off the couch, put on your tightest jeans and highest heels and go out drinking with her. When you’re bored, she’ll suggest a wild adventure, whether it’s a flying trapeze school or an impromptu road trip.

“Sometimes we need a friend who’s able to get us moving when we’re feeling down or unhappy -- someone who’s light, fun and adventurous,” says Irene S. Levine, psychologist, creator of TheFriendshipBlog.com and author of Best Friends Forever: Surviving a Breakup with Your Best Friend. “It’s easy to get in a rut and a friend can help us change our view of the world.”

Life is just a little more fun and exciting with an Instigator egging you on!
