Having and spending time with friends is an essential ingredient to a healthy, fulfilling life.
With friends, you have someone to talk to, listen to, and hug – all of which creates a longer life span, reduces depression, provides a sense of belonging, and a feeling of connectedness.
I love making friends and keeping old friends. I find both to be essential. With this practice, there will always be someone to support you, champion you, encourage you. You have people to get excited for, be proud of, be concerned for.
There are so many wonderful things to experience, share, and enjoy when connecting with friends – new and old – wherever life takes you.
I highly recommend keeping and gaining skills toward maintaining and making wonderful, healthy friendships to add spice to your life.
