Whether a friendship is between unlikely companions or not, the value and benefits of friendships are immeasurable. https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/5
This relaxing wombat and Scarlet Robin are enjoying their regular friendly catch-up time.
It goes without saying that life is lonely without friendships and that the benefits of friendships are many:
- increase your sense of belonging and purpose.
- Boost your happiness and reduce your stress.
- Improve your self-confidence and self-worth.
- Help you cope with traumas, such as divorce, serious illness, job loss or the death of a loved one, to name a few
It reinforces my need to make time for my friends and put people before work. After I push “publish”, I’m going to email a friend and ask to meet for a cuppa! and I hope that you can do the same.
Take care, from Patricia (PJ)
