“There is no possession more valuable than a good and faithful friend.” ― Socrates

Friendships are one of the most cherished and shot after relationships in the world.

Good friends are the most valuable possession in human life. They have a colossal effect on your health and happiness.

Good friends mitigate stress, offer comfort and joy, thwart solitude and seclusion, and even toughen your physical health.

But good friendships don’t just occur automatically. Many of us find it difficult to meet people and establish meaningful acquaintances.

Good friends are those who love and support you for what you are, what you do, and the way you think. Just make out what makes a good friend.

Whatever your age or situation, though, it’s never too late to build new friendships, reunite with old ones, and develop your social life significantly.

Nuptial ties are seen as the strongest bond. But in reality, in most of the marital bonding individualism, egoism, and materialism dictates the “relationship landscape”.

Friendship is relatively more unbounded, self-less, and serene. You may get that companionship from different other forms of relationships and/or associations. But friendship will prevail upon all other relationships.
