Good friends are the best balm for the soul

Last update: April 01, 2016

The famous proverb about friendship also says: "Chi trova a friend, trova a treasure". And that's right.

It is really true that as we go through life, some people come and some people come. But true friends are always next to us, regardless of life circumstances. One way or another, they never leave us.



Even if you already have very good friends, this does not mean that there is no more room for new people in your life. On the contrary: if you let other friends in, you will enjoy all the benefits that these new relationships will bring you. Even temporary friendships (for example, those you make on vacation or while traveling) can be a wonderful opportunity for personal growth.

Friendships must be healed, or they will die

There are many friends that we lose over the years, simply because each of us carries on his life, neglecting some relationships. But true friends are always by our side and, of course, there is also the possibility of making new friends, if we are open enough.

Sometimes we lose even close friends, because some of them (or ourselves) have changed jobs, moved to a different city, or because we are too busy to spend time with them. Also, it's true that some people find it more difficult to keep in touch than others.

“The best springs are discovered in periods of drought; best friends, in bad times. "

- Chinese proverb -

The friendship plant, like that of love, should be watered every day

Friendship is like love: it can be compared to a plant in a pot. If we don't water it every day, we won't see it grow and bloom. Its leaves will slowly fall off, dry up and eventually die. Friendships, just like plants, must be watered every day if we want to strengthen their roots and see them grow full of life.



Even if social interaction in person continues to be the most effective, let's not forget that the new means of communication leave us no more excuses: it is always possible to stay in touch with the people we love. Furthermore, it is necessary to build healthy relationships and bonds in order to continue to grow both individually and socially. Friends, in fact, give us benefits that last forever.

"The only way to have a good friend is to be one."

-Ralph W. Emerson-

Friends extend our life and make us happy

Having good friends, who make us happy, could even extend our life. Our friendships make us feel loved, they make us feel important in our social circle and, in addition, they care about our physical and emotional well-being.

A true friend will always tell you what he thinks. If something doesn't seem right to him or he feels bad for your happiness, he will give you advice. In addition, friends often help us live healthier and improve the quality of our life. They make us share our love for others differently.

Friends are good for the heart and mind

Your friends can make you much happier every day, even on those days when you don't feel like doing anything. On duller days, friends will bring a ray of sunshine. They will always be an important support for you on the hardest days, for example when you are going through a stressful period or you are having trouble managing your mood.


"Everyone proves who they are through the friends they have."


-Baltasar Gracian-

Happy, optimistic friends are the best

If you surround yourself with happy friends and optimists, you will increase your happiness level almost without realizing it. If, on the other hand, you have only toxic or always unhappy friends, you are likely to feel less happy than you deserve. Furthermore, such a relationship could lead you to have problems with some of them. This is why it is important that the relationships we establish with all our friends are healthy.


Good friends will increase your emotional security and allow you to improve your sense of belonging to a group, and to carry on your goals. Your circle of friends will make you feel like a flock of birds during the migration: able to fly alone, but always surrounded by those who love you and accompany you on the journey of life, because they share the same values ​​and the same with you. World vision.


“The perfect friendship is that of the good and the like in virtue. In fact, they love each other, as they are good. "

-Aristotle-

Treat your friends as you would like to be treated

The best way to be a good friend is to treat others as you would like to be treated. It would be even better to treat your friends as you would treat yourself. Remember: it's never too late to do it. True friends will always know how much you are worth, and how important you are in their life.
