Friends form a unique bond that is different than family. They share secrets and dreams that family may never understand or support. And unlike family, you get to pick your friends!
Helen Keller once said, "Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light." We are not put on this earth to live alone or be alone. Countless studies have proven that social connections have a positive effect on our well-being including reducing stress, alleviating depression, and even extending life. What would happen if you lived life without any contact with other people? Chances are you wouldn't have much of a reason to stick around because friends give your life meaning. They also make it fun.
Friends nourish our soul, inside and out. Make sure you value your friends and keep friendships a part of your life. Reach out to a friend today!
