Why is it necessary to have friend
Humans are social beings. Friendship with others is vital for survival, sustenance, and well being. We need friends for consolation in grief, for support in distress, for self-expression, for sharing joy.
Celebrate with us
Full joy is never realized until it has been shared with others - that's why we immediately call our friends when something good happens. Friends celebrate with us in victory and make our joy complete.
Friends can help you define your priorities
People tend to pick friends who are similar to them. This fact falls under the general proximity rule of close relationships, in that like tends to attract like. Because we fall prey so easily into this similarity trap, it is important to try to stretch yourself to learn from some of those opposites.
You have yet to shower or even brush your hair and your best friend calls. She's upset and wants you to come over right away. Best friends have seen us at our best and worst, and they love us either way. It's important to have someone in our lives we feel totally at ease with, Belleghem explains.
You are less lonely when you have friends
Loneliness is painful, especially when you are living with loneliness for a prolonged period of time. This is yet another reason to put time, energy, and attention into finding and cultivating a close circle of friends.
