The Importance of Having Friends

“Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to- letting a person be what he really is.” Jim Morrison.

Real friends complete us and make us whole. They will blatantly laugh at your embarrassing moments and still be there for you in tough and difficult times. They will tease you every now and then even when it drives you crazy yet become enraged when you are disrespected by someone else. Real friends become part of your family. You know that they will be there for you no matter the situation-whether good or bad. A part of who you are as an individual is as a result of the friends you surround yourself with.  Below are some of the benefits of surrounding yourself with true friends.

Dispel loneliness.

Loneliness can lead to depression. You may have everything in life, but if you are all alone, all these things don’t amount to much. Life is about relationships. Friends are a sure-fire way to kill loneliness. Going out for parties, watching movies, having late night conversations or taking a walk in the park with friends by your side will make life more enjoyable and exciting.

Comfort zone.

Your real friends will still be your friends through the good and the bad times. They will see you at your worst and still not change their opinion about you. Whether you are sick with a running nose, crying your heart out because of a nasty breakup, or you’ve just woken up looking messy with no makeup on, they will always love you the same. The importance of being surrounded by the right friends cannot be overly emphasized. You will feel comfortable around them no matter what state you are in.

Reality Check.

Your friends know the real you and whether it’s a façade your putting on or for some reason, your ego goes out of control, they will give you the harsh reality without holding anything back. This way, they will keep you from self-destruction.

Reassurance.

Life is not always a bed of roses. You will have times when you just want to hide yourself from the world. When you doubt yourself and your worth, your friends will be there to remind you of how great you are. They will help quell fears of unworthiness and self-doubt and in so doing, boost your self-confidence. In your worst moments, they will stand by you through thick and thin reminding you of how important you are.

Share secrets.

The burden of bearing a secret alone can be overwhelming to say the least. You get to share your secrets with friends no matter how big or small they might be- secrets about embarrassing moments, your crush, marital problems, family issues, work stresses and everything else going on in your life. This way, you will feel less burdened and troubled.
