The proverb ‘No man is an island’ actually shows the significance of friends in an individual’s life. Friendship is a sublime relationship between two or more people. We are friends with people whose company we enjoy the most and with whom we are comfortable. People become friends from primary human trusts, feelings, support, care, and understanding. Real friends are God’s blessings, and as someone once said, real friends increase the good in life and divide evils. Most of us have friends or once or the other did experience what friendship is.
Friends can be of the same or different age, origin, community, even species. The emotional and psychological bond we develop with our friends is called ‘friendship.’ Friendship is a bond that exists beyond greediness and jealousy. Earlier households had larger family member count, and the seed of friendship sown in the children was soon after their birth. Almost the same age, family members became friends as they engaged in similar activities. But nowadays, families are mostly small, and households with only one child often suffer from loneliness and social anxiety.
Below are a few points that'll try to reflect on the Importance of friendship in our life:-
1) Friends Help Us Interact With Just About Everyone
The people we bring into our lives as friends will show us how to forgive, laugh, and make conversation. The basic components of any relationship, from our marriage to our coworkers, are all founded in friendship. We learn how to interact with people because of our friends, even the ones that are opposite from us or share a different worldview.
We don’t just talk with others but learn from them. We understand the process of meeting new acquaintances and finding out what makes them tick. These people help push us out of our comfort zones while still providing a safe emotional space for us to be totally ourselves.
2) Friends Keep Us Mentally and Physically Strong
One of the most overlooked benefits of friendship is that it helps keep our minds and bodies strong. In fact, it’s as important to our physical health as eating well and keeping fit. A recent Harvard study concluded that having solid friendships in our life even helps promote brain health.
Friends help us deal with stress, make better lifestyle choices that keep us strong, and allow us to rebound from health issues and disease more quickly.
Friendship is equally important to our mental health. One study even suggested spending time with positive friends actually changes our outlook for the better. That means we’re happier when we choose to spend time with happy people.
3) Friends Help Us Weather Lonely Times
Friends don’t completely cure loneliness (that’s a common myth) but they do help us during lonely times. We learn how to accept kindness and also to reach out when we need help. Those painful times when we might be without friends also help us to appreciate the friendships that come in and out of our lives.
Having a steady stream of friends lets us know that some friendships won’t last forever but each one brings something special. We learn more about ourselves and how important it is to have someone, just one person, who knows and understands you. This is the key to coming out of loneliness.
4) Friends Improve the Quality of Our Lives
Friends can change our value system so we learn to inject more meaning into our lives. In spending time with Friends, we will fill up our lives with great conversation, heartfelt caring, and support, and laugh out loud funny. When we fall into hard times, friends are there to put things in perspective and help us. When we have success, they're smiling at our good fortune. With down to earth, positive people in our life we will be more mindful of gratitude and doing nice things for others. We don't just live when we have healthy friendships, we thrive.
