The gift of friendship.. a willingness to listen.. a pair of helping hands.. a whisper from the heart… that someone cares and understands.
Loyalty is a rare commodity in today’s world, but it’s an absolute requirement in true and abiding friendships. When we are loyal to one friend, we prove ourselves worthy of many. George Washington offered some wise words about friendship when he said, “Be courteous to all, but intimate with few; and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence. True friendship is a plant of slow growth and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity before it is entitled to the appellation.”
Friendships can have a major impact on your well being since they heighten your happiness, reduce our stress and perk up our self-worth. Close friends support us through thick and thin. In our everyday life. We need friends to lean on, to grieve with us, to listen to us, and to motivate us. Friends motivate and help us to develop our sense of self-worth. They matter to us, regardless of gender. Life without any friends can make us lonely. Friends, most often, give us many reality checks. Hanging out with friends is a great way to overcome loneliness. When it comes to happiness, our friends are the key.
