They give us a break from reality
When your family is stressing you out, when work or school has made you physically and mentally tried. Sometimes the only person/people that can help you and make you feel best are your friends. Depending on what your relationship is like, they can help you forget all your troubles. Your best friend understands you on another level that no one else can. So much that, studies show that when you are put in a stressfull situation with your friends, you feel less stress than if you were not. My best friend and I are able to go into our own world and forget about reality when we are by ourselves. Because of this, I am able to focus and rewind from any troubles I have. Get yourself a best friend that you can laugh with as soon as you start talking.
They hold our deepest darkest secrets
This is a known FACT. If you can’t tell your family something, your best friend will most likely find out. When something huge happens in your life it is human instinct to tell someone what happened. This is a person you trust and know they won’t say anything, you end up telling your best friend and then they become a walking dictionary of your secrets. It’s not always a bad thing. Because of this, your friends can recall memories of your life which can bring you certain emotions. You most likely will be laughing because of all the stupid things you have done.
Best friends help us learn
From a young age we learn how to make friends and build reletionships. When making friends , we normally pick people who we think our like ourselves or people we think we can get on with. We then start to watch are friends, see how they do things and if we like it we do the same. This is how we learn from our friends.
At some point in time, your best friend has introduced you to something that you have now incorporated into your everyday activities; forgetting what they have taught you. Best friends help to develop our personality; they help quide the process. Thats why if you have known someone for along time you may feel that you guys think or act the same way. This is because you learn from each other. Best friends our essential because they break us out of our shell, teach us new things and together you go on adventures.
So having a best friend is definatly an added plus to your life. So it is worth saying thank you to your friends.
