The Power of Friendship
I read a post just the other day – a friend of mine wondered why we don’t have sleepovers when we’re adults, an evening where we can do facemasks, chat about our issues and generally have fun. Naturally, there are lots of obvious answers as to why not but the truth is, time with friends can be extremely therapeutic. As National Friendship Day approaches we look at the value of friends.
One good friend is worth more than ten fake ones! And if you’re lucky, you’ll be stuck with each other for life. What we’re actually talking about here is loyalty and commitment.
It’s a promise to stand by your friend through thick and thin. It’s holding their hand through all of their storms and wiping away their tears when life throws them a curveball.
Friendship means forging a bond so strong that nothing can break you apart.
When you think about it, true friendship is one of the most meaningful and long-lasting relationships of your life.
It can sometimes be difficult to make friends as an adult, we become more suspicious of people and
less confident in creating new friendships. With the popularity of social media, many have lots of
‘friends’ but very few people have friends they can actually call on.
Don't be embarrassed. There's no shame in being lonely, and you're certainly won't be the only person who feels isolated. ...
Meet your neighbours. ...

Start a new hobby…
