Real Friendship Makes your Life Better:
According to a study, people with close friends are healthier than those who don’t have them. If you have close friends, you experience less pain, you’re much less depressed, and you’re a happier person.
The importance of friendship goes beyond just a talk-over-the-phone conversation. It’s more on strong connection and finding your best bud in life. Nowadays, young people of the new generation spend most of their time outside the home and most, if not all of them, use up more time connecting with friends than family members. This explicitly means that making friends is one vital attribute a young person needs to learn in her early age not only because it is the trend but also because this is one of the qualities he needs to gain knowledge of for it is a foundation to build strong relationships and connections which is of great help as he is aging and reaching maturity.
But friendship is much more than just sharing the good and the bad, friendship holds some very important emotional and physical elements as well. It’s not only important to have friends, but it’s also absolutely imperative to a healthy life that you have friends. According to a study, people with close friends are healthier than those who don’t have them. If you have close friends, you experience less pain, you’re much less depressed, and you’re a happier person. One statistics study even showed that smoking is just as unhealthy if you don’t have a friend. Friends also encourage good habits, chase away depression and cause satisfaction, pleasure and happiness. Amazing, isn’t it? So you see? Friendship not only gives you a longer life, but also a happier life as well. However, just like any relationship, you must learn how to nurture friendship so that you can have a lasting bonding with your worth-keeping friends.
Yet one thing that we will always love about friends is the high-hearted spirit and jokingness that comes along with it and not only the health benefits we get from it. Having a true friend means that no matter where you are or what you are doing, you will be able to always have fun and meaning in life.
Making friends might be a difficult thing for some especially for the introverts, but hey, don’t be afraid to get out and meet new friends around you, because one of them might unexpectedly change your life for the better.
