Why are friends so important?

We are all aware of how valuable friends are. We have friends we go shopping with, friends we go to the gym with, and friends we go out for coffee with. But having a best buddy is a great benefit in life, even if you have one for every occasion. Friendship is an important factor in maintaining our mental health. We need to communicate with our friends, and we want to listen when they do. Friends can help us stay grounded and put things into perspective. It is worthwhile to put out effort in sustaining and forming new friendships. Friendship is one of the most important aspects of our ability to deal with life’s challenges.
Having great friends does not need having a large number of connections, but rather a few who have your best interests at heart. Below, we’ve summarized the top reasons why are friends so important in your life:
1. They can boost your happiness & reduce your stress.
