Friendship is part of a long, happy marriage in which both partners like, as well as love, one another.
It’s the friends you can call up at 4 am that matter.
Some friendships withstand the test of time; others, sadly, fail it.
With a good friend, you smile a little more often; anger a little less quickly. The sun shines a little brighter; and life is a little sweeter.
Recent research has shown that being able to talk to a friend about personal problems has important mental health benefits. It has also revealed that most people have fewer than five friends that they consider close. So having a small number of close friends turn out to be the key to a balanced, happy, healthy, life.
