Remember the times that you were cute and little. Running through streets, playing in the gardens, jumping, riding and extremely socializing.
Believe it or not, most people were more social when they were children. Many people admit that they have way fewer friends now than they used to have when they were kids.
It’s probably because, just like everything else, getting friends and maintaining a friendship got complicated as you grew up.
And sometimes, especially when we have a friendship broken, we keep asking ourselves that nasty question: “Why on earth do I need to have friends and socialize? Can’t I just find an activity to entertain myself on my own?”
You may think that you suck at finding new friends or even maintaining a current friendship. You even may think friendships suck, but here is a piece of advice: Never give up on your friends, because… Well.
You need to socialize, because that’s in your nature.
As a human being, you haven’t got much to do other than finding people to get along with, because that’s pretty much in your nature.
Don’t forget that it’s much easier to deal with anything you can’t cope with on your own with more than just you.
Nature is wild, nature is cruel. Ever since the beginnings of the history, even the cavemen gathered up to cope with natural disasters, sicknesses and many other things that they felt weak against.
You’re a human, after all, you can’t cope with the world’s wilderness on your own. You’ll always need people that you get along with to feel strong.
And that’s pretty normal.
Having friends reduces your stress.
Stress is a well-expected outcome of all the troubles and problems you encounter in life. Your body needs to react to incidents, and when things go out of control, your body’s most common reaction is to produce a lot of stress.
Being too stressed beats you up both psychologically and physically. And in the long term, it harms your body more than you think.
But having friends help to reduce the stress because you share, you talk, you relieve, you find support. No matter how hard times you face, having true friends will always make you feel relieved.
Having friends and socializing makes you more self-confident.
Yes. It’s no lie that we all want to be popular.
Being popular, being liked, and being adored, definitely boosts your ego, self confidence and worth.
The more people you know and make yourself likable to, the better you boost your ego. And that ends up improving your self confidence, the front face of your ego. That’s the simplest algorithm.
You always find an entertaining activity when you truly socialize.
Yes, with minutely chosen true friends, you don’t really have the chance to get bored.
Whenever you need it, or even sometimes when you don’t need it, you’ll always find a good activity with your friends, no matter where or how you are.
You just need good friends to have fun, nothing more.
You deal better with serious incidents.
You may get a divorce or lose someone you really loved. You may lose your job, or you may get kicked out of home.
Life always shows you more than you asked for, but with good and sincere friends, you have the strength to cope with all that you face.
You share your agony, lean towards them and feel relieved for a couple of minutes which is quite enough to take a break on life.
You organize your habits according to your friends.
That’s the part where most of our families do really worry about.
Yes, it’s possible to get “bad” habits because of our “bad” friends, but that doesn’t change the fact that friends help us gain or lose our habits.
We all know many people who quitted smoking, or started to go to gym, or get their hair dyed in a better color, all thanks to their friends.
It’s a good opportunity to organize our habits and even daily life looking at the good examples wandering around near us.
The reasons are not over here, there are a thousand more reasons to have friends.
But the real question is:
Do you really need to hear some more?
