Life is to be fortified by many friendships. To love and to be loved is the greatest happiness of existence. Sydney Smith
I love my friends. They boost my energy. They make me laugh. They allow me to vent. They cheer me on.
Often, we can’t get together in person.
Social media has become a way for us to still stay connected. It is similar to the quilting bee of days gone by. The quilting bee was not about putting a quilt together. It was a way for the women of the community to get out from their homes and get connected. They shared, they vented, they cried, and they laughed.
Social media is just like the quilting bee for when we can’t connect in person. We post about our thoughts and our situations and our friends reply back with comments and support us.
Though others can comment on our writings, our pictures and our videos, there is nothing like the face-to-face gatherings of friends.
So Here are today’s Hot Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating International Day of Friendship:
We know from our research that people with friends are less likely to suffer physical and mental health problems than those who are socially isolated.
Friendships can last a lifetime or be specific to a time in our life – however long, they are valuable.
Remember your friends. Let them know that they matter. Connect when possible – but don’t leave it up to chance – or time may pass you both by.
